Paddle - Trek - Navigate
Make a team or go solo as the temperatures start cooling off and the leaves start falling and changing color for our Fall Foliage Adventure Race in and around stunningly beautiful C.M. Crockett Park and Germantown Lake. If you love being outdoors, then this is the event for you.
For this race, we'll be taking a break from biking and enjoying the colors of fall while trekking and paddling in/around C. M. Crockett Park and Germantown Lake, a 109-acre lake which is the result of a flooded quarry built by the area’s original German settlers, it was the first German settlement in Virginia.
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: on-foot, biking & paddling. 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 way you think is most optimal and find as many CPs as you can within the 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).
We will also be holding an Adventure Racing 101 tutorial session for first-timers before race day.
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.
