Make a team or go solo as the temperatures start cooling off and the leaves start falling and changing color during our Fall Foliage Adventure Race in and around the stunningly beautiful Mason Neck peninsula in Lorton, Virginia. If you love being outdoors, then this is the event for you.
4-hour Race: For the first time, our 4-hour fall race will have biking, but no worries, this will be the most beginner biking we could think of as it'll all be a mix of paved trails and gravel. As usual this race will start alongside our bigger race and and consist of some smaller parts from that course.
8-hour Race: This year we're taking our more seasoned racers through a bunch of areas that have never seen an adventure race before, it will consist of multiple parks, conservancies and historical sites with plenty trekking, paddling and biking along with some other fun challenges thrown in.
New to adventure racing? What is an adventure race? Simply put, Adventure Racing (AR) is orienteering (navigating with a map and compass) but via multiple modes of travel. Unlike your average 10K/5K, marathon or obstacle course race where there is a strict roped off race course to follow; with orienteering/AR you are given a map with marked checkpoints (CPs), and its up to you/your team to decide & navigate which route you think is most optimal and find as many checkpoints as you can within a time limit. The best teams will work together and help each other to not only go fast, but also efficiently, acquiring the most checkpoints wins (fastest time as tie-breaker).
Spectators are welcome to watch, hang out, take pictures, fish or just picnic in the park during this event but are NOT allowed to assist participants. This is a USARA-sanctioned race.
