About This Activity

Early spring races are known for mud, and Nemacolin has its fair share of it!  But don't let this stop you from entering this challenging race that is designed to be fast and exciting.  If you are new to adventure racing, this is a great chance to get you feet wet (pun intended) and if you are a veteran this race is sure to test your winter training program!  This race will consist of running (up to 9 miles), mountain biking (up to 15 miles), and navigation.  It is anticipated that the navigation for this race will be minimal for the bike leg, and that it will be at an intermediate level for the run leg.  The race will follow a ROGAINE format (racers will have a choice of what, and how many Control Points they will visit) though there may be some required Control Points (CP's)--as well as some marked course.

For NAR, racers will have the choice of racing either the 3 or the 6 hour division.  Points awarded will be based on the number of Control Points visited, and their assigned value.  The team or racer with the most points in the fastest time wins.
