Length: 80 Hours

After three years of planning ARGEORGIA is happy to announce the first-ever 3-day expedition race in Colorado. Packed full of everything you want in a race with the most beautiful wilderness backdrop in the US. Teams will be visiting the host city of Breckenridge, which is the most athlete-friendly town in Colorado with hotels, shops, restaurants, breweries, and, of course, trails everywhere. Teams will be bused to Twin Lakes for the start of the race and work their way back to Breckenridge via mountain bike, trekking, climbing, paddling, and maybe something crazy that has never been in an expedition race before. The lowest elevation teams will have is 9,600 ft and the highest during the race will be over 14,000ft. Come join us on this amazing journey through the best parts of Colorado, while creating life-long memories. This year's disciplines will be orienteering, trekking, mountain biking, and flatwater paddling.

This is an 80-hour, non-stop race from Twin Lakes, CO to Breckenridge, CO on your own power. Teams will be dropped off at a secret location in Twin Lakes where they will race on foot, mountain bike, canoe and whatever we throw in to get back to the finish. There are up to 6 transition areas and 50 checkpoints to retrieve during the journey. Official finishers are only required to visit all the transition areas from the start to the finish line. All checkpoints are optional; however, teams are ranked by how many checkpoints they retrieve and the time they finished.

This year's race contains no whitewater or ropes sections.


Race Tips from the Race Director

Navigation will be very straightforward with some tricks thrown in however, get familiar with using a TOPO map. There will be no plotting UTM coordinates during this year's race; however, there is an O-Relay during the race so make sure at least two team members can navigate alone. All information forms and maps are waterproof. Train mostly on climbing uphill on foot and bike. Be prepared for any type of weather; August in Colorado at high elevations could be anything from cold rain in the low 40s at night to highs in the 80s during the day. If you have a chance to visit Colorado before the race, then do it.
