May 19 will offer 2 race options. A 6 and 12 hour course. Adventure races are all done using orienteering skills (compass and map), no GPS devices are allowed, but we are happy to give instruction. The Wellington Lake area is a great place to learn orienteering skills - it would be very difficult to get lost with the distinct terrain and the vast trail and road system in the area, so fear not!
All races will require you, and all members of your team to mountain bike, trek/hike, kayak as well as complete any rock sections which could include climbing, rappelling or a tyrolean traverse. You are allowed to 'skip' a section but will be ranked accordingly.
While still competitive, the 6-hour course is geared towards beginners and/or experienced racers on teams to introduce family and friends to this exciting sport. It will consist of 5-10 miles of mountain biking, 3-5 miles of hiking/trekking, and approximately 1 mile flat-water kayaking. Climbing, rappelling, and tyrolean traverse are all possibilities! All climbing gear will be provided.
The 12-hour course is our most challenging course with much more navigation required. It will offer 50+ total miles, including mountain biking in the Buffalo Creek trail system.
We are currently exploring adding training/clinic options on May 18th as we had in 2023. Last years Orienteering was a huge success and racers reported that it helped in completion of the course. These are provided for an additional, discounted fee that that you may add at any time.
If you are not racing, you may still participate and join these courses for a slightly higher registration fee.
Military and first responders, please contact us for a team discount of 10%.
