24 Hour Championships
We are extremely excited to announce the ADVENTURE RACING SOLO CHAMPIONSHIPS coming in November of 2021. Showcasing the top Solo Adventure Racers in the US and other countries. In order to qualify for the Solo Championships, you will need to enter and finish as a solo in one of the over 20 qualifying races. Registration begins November 1st, 2020. Once you have completed a qualifying race you may register. This event is open to the first 100 solos and $1,000 for the 1st place overall male and female with free entry to next year's championships.
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 a better teammate in future races.
The 24 Hour race will be bused to a secret location, so as to prevent scouting the areas before the race. Since the race is all solo racers we will need to separate each solo to prevent teaming up into to help each other win, at the start each soloist will draw a random opening trek section. 3 different trek sections designed at the start of the race to force each soloist to head if different directions. Each soloist will be required to complete all three (A, B, and C) trek maps and punches for the section. Think of this as one normal trek section with (9 controls) however, split up into three (3 controls) smaller treks. Each trek 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 into Trek Section #2 during the race they will be given Trek Map A and punch card A to head out and complete that Map. Then second-place Solo coming in will be forced to complete Trek Map B and then the third-place solo will be given Map C and so on. The course design may have the same format during the paddle sections as well. This randomness will ensure that the race remains SOLO.
Now here is where it gets really wild. Live results will be tracking the top 10 racers throughout the 24 Hour race and at the finish, the top 10 solos and only the top 10 will compete in a 3 Hour Shootout. They will start over fresh with a new course in an all-out battle for the number 1 spot.
3 Hour Shootout:
The Top Ten Overall solos will receive new maps and instructions for the Shootout at 8:15 am sharp as the 24 Hour race finishes. They will have 15-30 minutes to review and prepare to start again. The faster you finish the 24 Hour race the longer you have to recover and rest before the shootout. The winner of the Shootout will be crowned the Solo National Champion.
We will begin (3 Hours) live coverage of the Shootout with highlights from the 24 Hour Race and commentary from two of the most experienced adventure racers in the world. We are also hiring the largest live media crew to cover the championships with over 3 live-feed cameras, 6 embedded videographers, 3 photographers, and 2 drone operators. Family and friends will be able to watch live and after it's all over we will produce amazing race videos telling the stories within the championships.
