Adventure Racing Series

Sprint and Mid-distance Races in the Performance Adventure Racing Series  

NEXT RACE DATE in the AR Series at Bayard Conservation Area will soon be announced...

Brief Race Outline: There will be a SuperSprint Race of about 2-2.5 hours (3-hour limit) and a 6-hour Mid-Distance Race. In the SuperSprint Race, about half the race is on foot and about half on your bike. In the longer Mid-Distance Race, time is divided almost equally between biking, paddling, and trekking. Start for both is at 9:00AM.   In order to participate, Teams must pre-register before the race. These races are for two-person teams and solo competitors. 

Please See AR Series UPDATES PAGE for details.

The BEAR Adventure Race  will have both 10-hour limit & 5-hour limit races. 

Join us for some adventure...

If you and your teammates have not already registered for the next Performance Adventure Racing event, we want to invite you to this race. The 3-Hour Super-Sprint Race format is a challenging and do-able adventure race and does not require teams to bring their own boats. The Performance Adventure Racing Sprint Series events start at 9:00AM and will take most teams from 2 to 2.5 hours to finish. The races have a 3-hour cut-off for completion, so that awards can begin not later than 12:30am. The Performance Adventure Racing Series 6-hour Mid-Distance events also start at 9:00AM and will take most teams from 4.5 to 5.5 hours to finish. The races have an 6-hour cut-off for completion, so that awards can begin not later than 3:30pm. We have designed each race course that you will find exciting and demanding -- and fun. The disciplines of the Performance Adventure Racing Sprint Series include off-road biking, paddling in canoes or kayaks (not in the 3-hr Super-Sprint), non-technical climbing and ropes challenges, navigating with a compass, running/trekking, and some interesting mystery events.

The AR Series UPDATES web page provides any changes and answers frequently asked questions. As you probably understand, specific details of the race components are a mystery until the day of the race, but we are happy to answer your questions that do not ask us to "give away" specific secrets about the event. Many of these answers are finding their way to the Performance AR Series Updates page. As with many other adventure races, the course, order, and challenges change from year to year for The Performance AR Sprint Series races. Look over all the online pages for The Performance AR Sprint Series races, so that you can get a good idea of what is in store for participants. Make special note of the AR Series Updates page. Then register by mail or online -- and come to join us for some great adventures.  Scroll down to find links for Adventure Race Series rules, equipment, maps and other info.
