Disciplines: Mountain Biking, Trekking and Orienteering

What is adventure racing? Read all about it HERE

How do you do it?  Using all available resources including the map you're given, written directions, problem solving, route choice, etc.

Nearly anyone can do it, and you'll have these events explained thoroughly either by race staff or in your race guide you receive.  We get LOTS of questions from athletes who are used to sports like running or triathlon where the entire race is clearly laid out with little thought necessary.  In Adventure racing, you may have to read directions, strategize, come up with new ideas and, generally speaking, if the race director didn't say "You can't"...then "You can".

If you have questions, ask: Help@SierraAdventureSports.com. 

WARNING: Try this sport and you'll be hooked!

Who:
Two person teams. Male, Female or Coed

What:
Mountain Biking, Trekking and Orienteering over a 18-20K course.  You will use a pre-marked topographical map to find your way to checkpoints scattered about the Fort Tuthill area.  In addition, you will have to complete a few "Mystery Events" along the way.  What is a Mystery Event, you ask? They are team challenges in which you'll have to work together to strategize on how to best complete the task. Examples of past Mystery Events: blindfolded puzzles, plank walks, climbing walls, etc

Where
: Fort Tuthill Recreation Area, Flagstaff AZ - From I-17, take exit 337 for Highway 89A, go West and directly into Fort Tuthill

Adventure Racing should be above all else FUN, and our races are meant to be exactly that.  You'll enjoy it even if you come in last. 

When we personally race, we make mistakes, take pictures, get lost, get found, laugh, cry, sweat, finish first, finish last, but always have a great time! And that's our philosophy on creating all of our races.  Please join us!

Our summer races are short (approximately 12-18K) adventure races that will each have 2 core disciplines (paddling, mountain biking, hiking, adventure tubing), and a few mystery events thrown in.   They will start early in the morning and are designed to be completely finished within 3-4 hours, though leaders may finish between 60 & 90 minutes. If you are just looking into starting adventure racing, this is the perfect race for you.
