Adventure Race Northern Illinois

August 7, 2021  / Northern Illinois

Eyes of the World Adventure Racing is hosting a 10-hour and 4-hour race in Northern Illinois. Our 10-hour race will include paddling / mountain biking / orienteering / "creekteering" / trail running. Racers will have 10-hours to get as many checkpoints as they can in that time. The team with the most checkpoints in the shortest amount of time wins. Racers will find themselves paddling the gorgeous Kishwaukee River and riding some flowy, awesome single track. This will be an adventurous course that highlights some top areas in 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 racing don't miss this opportunity to test your limits and compete against other racers and the course.

Our 4 hour race will feature paddling / biking / orienteering / "creekteering" / 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.
