Take on the Shenandoah AquaBlaze, where all you need are trail shoes, decent paddle skills, endurance, and the desire to spend a great day off the beaten path. The AquaBlaze is our fastest-growing race, and that's because it is the next best thing to an adventure race--a great day in the woods, pushing your limits in a beautiful place with your favorite teammate...but without all the map reading and equipment! Because who needs a mountain bike? Not you, not today! You'll be hitting one of the most picturesque rivers and mountain trails Virginia can offer at one of the prettiest times of the year. The adventure starts with about a 10-mile paddle section on the Shenandoah River followed by a 13.4-mile trail run or trek through George Washington National Forest to the finish line. With this race format, you’ll only need a pair of running shoes, water supply, and race nutrition. Sign up to compete, or just come out and enjoy a day of racing at your own pace by yourself or with a teammate.
