SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
Registration and Transition Area open at 7 am
Mandatory pre-race meeting at 7:45 am
Race starts promptly at 8 am
You will be Mountain Biking, Trekking and Orienteering over an
18-22k course using a single transition area located at the
Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course.
You will be given a pre-marked topographical map that you will use to make your way to checkpoints scattered about the Fort Tuthill area. In addition, you will have to complete a few "Mystery Events" along the way. What is a Mystery Event, you ask? They are team challenges in which you'll have to work together to strategize on how to best complete the task. Examples of past Mystery Events: blindfolded puzzles, plank walks, climbing walls, etc
You WILL be plotting checkpoints at some point during the race onto a map we provide. If you are new to this, don't worry! It's easy to learn and execute. There are some great tutorials HERE.
MANDATORY GEAR PER PERSON:
- A hydration bladder or bottles capable of carrying at least 70 oz of water
- A bandana
- Pens/Pencils/Highlighters for marking your map
- A mountain bike and helmet
- UTM plotting tool (You can buy them for $5 HERE)
- First aid kit for whatever you may encounter during the race. Don't skimp! It's your health! (One kit per team is ok)
- One gallon of water to be left with your gear in the transition area
- Waterproof map case or a large ziplock bag
- Cell phone in case of emergency (MUST be turned off during the race)
- Gels, energy bars, electrolyte caps, etc for the trails

GPS units are not allowed.
If you are found using one, you will be disqualified.
We will have a transition area where you can stow your gear when not in use. For instance, you don't need to carry your helmet on the hike. You will be looping back through the Transition Area.
Make a weekend of it!
