COMPETITION FORMAT:

Adventure Racing is like an off-road triathlon with paddling instead of swimming. The biggest difference is that races can be done solo or as a team (the sport’s officially recognized elite division of adventure racing is 3-4 person Co-Ed teams), AND that the race involves strategy, navigation and possible surprise challenges (like the Amazing Race). Racers can expect to mountain bike trails, canoe, run or trek (walk) to about 15 checkpoints using team strategy to complete all or most of them before the race clock stops. All teams will start and finish the race together (not a relay). All teams must have at least one adult (18 and over), not recommended for children under 12 yrs old (contact commissioner). Gold, Silver and Bronze medals awarded to the top three teams in each age division. Trophy awarded to the first place team in each division.

THE COURSE:

The course will remain a secret until racer check-in, when all teams will receive their maps and checkpoint sheet with information. Milford State Park is bordered on three sides by the largest lake in Kansas, Milford Lake and the scenery and trails are beautiful. The park is a combination of dense forests, crops, open meadows, ravines, immense shorelines and overall amazing Flint Hills terrain. Mountain biking will have possibilities of technical single track trail riding, cross country and paved roads. Paddling will be in coves or creeks and may include portions of the main lake. The course may also include areas adjacent to Milford State Park. Lake Adventures has been organizing adventure races for 6 years and events are known for challenge, terrain, organization and structure that allows teams to complete the whole course if they are willing to really push their limits. Teams should come prepared to complete the following disciplines (as a team): Paddling  up to 2 miles; Mountain Biking up to 15 miles; Trail Running or Trekking  up to 5 miles.
