What is Adventure Racing??
Adventure races include mountain/gravel biking, rowing, orienteering and other disciplines to find control points along a course through forests, waterways, trails and rural roads.  There is a time limit, but winners are determined first by finding the most checkpoints.  The course is not revealed until immediately before the race.  Navigation is by map and compass - no GPS devices allowed!  Racers supply their own mountain bike and personal gear, but maps, watercraft, and paddles are supplied and included in the race fee.  Click here for a deeper breakdown of the sport.  If you have never adventure raced before but feel you're strong in the disciplines, the 6 hour event is for you!  For a truly introductory experience, try Berryman-Lite.

The Berryman Adventure 18 hour and 6 hour courses earn USARA points, and are challenging courses designed for experienced racers.

Berryman-Lite is designed with novice adventure racers in mind.  This is a low risk, fun option for beginners or anyone who wants a gentle introduction to the sport.
* partially supported (some water on the course) *
* maps will be pre-plotted *
* navigation will be accessible for beginners *
* simplified gear list *
* easy to cut back to headquarters whenever you've had enough *
