Race Summary

Each day of the race will be broken into stages that will take between 16 and 24 hours to complete. The stage must be completed in a prescribed time to avoid being short-coursed or having points deducted. Teams will be held at the end of each stage at a transition area (TA) called a “Dark Zone” before being allowed to continue to the next stage. Mandatory points must be collected between TAs. Optional points collected will determine who will ultimately be crowned winner of the Cameco and the City of Casper Cowboy Tough Expedition Race.
For elite adventure racers, there will be adequate optional points to keep you racing nonstop for the duration of the race. For teams out for the experience, collecting mandatory points will push you to your limits but also allow for recovery and rest during the “Dark Zone.”

This is a non supported race.  REV3 will transport a 2x2x4 box container for each team to the transitions areas for resupply.
