The Rock Expedition/Adventure Race

August 6, 2022  The Rock  Expedition/Adventure Race

Our 10-hour race will include paddling, mountain biking, orienteering, and three sections of land navigation. Racers will have 10-hours to get as many checkpoints as they can in that time while only using a map and compass. The team with the most checkpoints in the shortest amount of time wins. Racers will find themselves riding single track and orienteering in various parks throughout Northern Illinois. We will have multiple transitions during the race to keep you moving from one discipline to the next with numerous land navigation sections. The big question is how adventurous and badass are you? If you think you have what it takes to tackle ten hours of non-stop adventure racing don't miss this opportunity to test your limits and compete against other racers and the course. We will provide maps for all racers!

Our 4-hour race will feature paddling/biking/orienteering/trail running. This race will be designed for the beginner adventure racer but will include multiple transitions and disciplines. This is a great race for the adventurer looking to find out what adventure racing is all about. Families and children are encouraged to race together. Don't second guess yourself, sign up and give it a try. This race will be designed as a "trifecta" - racers will choose their order of events between biking, orienteering, or the paddle. All of this is done with only a map and compass. We will provide maps for all racers!
