Event Description

This is an adventure style race with multiple disciplines including running, biking, a water event and mystery challenges.

The course includes running on hard surfaces and a mowed grass trail.  Biking will be mostly on a paved recreational trail.  The water event is approximately 500 feet in length and you will be required to wear an approved life jacket provided by race officials.  Mystery events may be physical or mental.

This is a mostly self-supported event, especially related to hydration and personal needs.

  1. 1. Participants must be able to carry water on their person and/or on their bike.  Water is available to refill containers at pre-race/finish (Wapsi Great Western Line (WGWL) Trailhead in Riceville), at start, at McIntire City Park (the transition area from run to bike) and at Lake Hendricks.
  2. 2. Restroom facilities are available at pre-race/finish, the start, McIntire City Park, and Lake Hendricks.

First, second and third place awards for men and women.  This is a timed event.  Participants must arrive for the water event at Lake Hendricks before 11:00 in order to continue the race.  You have two hours and 40 minutes to officially finish and receive a finisher’s medal.  Those finishing in over two hours and 40 minutes will be given congratulations for their efforts.   All participants will receive a free lunch from 11:45-12:15.
