New to Adventure Racing?
We are looking to crown the best overall solo adventure racer in the US, good at navigation, thinking for themselves, and speed. The event will also help racers master these skills to be better teammates in future races. This will be a standard 24-hour race with a cut-off at the final 4 Hours with a "Limited Rogaine" battle via Bike, Foot, and Paddle to locate as many CPs as you can and get to the finish line before the hard cut-off of 20 hours and then continue to race the final 4 hours collecting as many final CPs as you can with the time remaining. The final 4 hours of the race will be unknown to racers until they reach TA3 (Finish Line) location to then receive their final information, rules of travel, and maps.
Since the race is all solo racers we will need to separate each solo to prevent teaming up to help each other win. At the start, each soloist will draw a random opening trek section. Two different trekking sections were designed at the start of the race to force each soloist to head in different directions. Each soloist will be required to complete both (A and B) trek maps and all three punches for each section. Think of this as one normal trek section with (6 controls), however, split up into three smaller treks with three controls in each trek. Each trekking section during the race will follow this same format as each soloist comes to a trek, they will be forced to start a different course. Example: The first-place solo comes in from Trek Section "B", they will be given the Trek Section "A" map and punch to head out and complete that section. The course design may have the same format during the paddle sections as well. This randomness will ensure that the race remains SOLO and there will be no information given to any racers during the event by staff or volunteers.
Live results will be tracked throughout both races and at the finish using e-punches and trackers.
Masters will remain in their division and are not eligible for the grand prize, so choose wisely.
Water and snacks will be provided at every TA. Spectator maps for guests will be available at race headquarters and online after the race starts. Families and spectators are not allowed to help, supply food, get out race information, or assist racers in any way during the race. DQ to any racer accepting outside assistance. (1) 27 Gallon bin per racer is allowed.
