The beginning of a world of adventure
Sept 22, 2018
Chatfield State Park
The Genesis Adventure Race is designed to be an introduction into the amazing world of adventure racing! Teams will participate in running / mountain biking / orienteering and a water traverse as they race to find check points and finish obstacles in the allotted time. If you’ve ever dreamed of challenging yourself in an exciting, fun and unique race format – Genesis is for you! If you are a seasoned veteran of adventure racing– this is an excellent opportunity to encourage others and get friends and family involved along side you. Show them your passion and impress them with your skills!
Each leg holds a different challenge. While one may be an expert cyclist, this sport lets you spread your wings and compete in other specialties as part of a team! You will have fun, laugh, sweat and power through this 6 hour course and come out feeling a sense of accomplishment! Teams will design their own route using a map provided – and learn the strategies of adventure racing. (do we take the short, steep route, or do we take the longer, faster route to a check point?) There will be many required check points, and several optional “pro points” to allow each team to make a critical decision…. to go for the extra points, or to play it safe to assure you finish within the time limit. Teams will be ranked according to how many of the disciplines and checkpoints they complete and if they cross the finish line – before time runs out!
Please feel free to contact us with questions on adventure racing and the race format! Remember… on the other side of fear – is freedom, and only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
