2008 Results for The BEAR Adventure Race

The BEAR Adventure Race includes a series of stages that must be completed within the race time limits. Some Teams enter the BEAR CUB with a 6-hour time limit or The BEAR (10-hour limit) and are provided with Stage Instruction sheets to begin the race. Teams are given the next set of instructions as they complete each stage. There was an intermediate cut-off time at 9 hours, after which Teams were not given the next set of instructions that would clearly cause the Team to finish after the race time limit of 10 hours. At the beginning of the races, both CUB and BEAR Teams are using the same instructions. Of course, Teams in The BEAR receive more tasks/stages to accomplish.

In order to win The BEAR, a Team must complete the most stages in the shortest time and stay within the time limit.

 
 

Please send YOUR photos and we will include some of them with these results.
