FL Coast to Coast

           Thegoal.wmf (35378 bytes) The relatively new phenomenon of Adventure Racing is designed to challenge the abilities of all athletes from beginners to the weekend warriors to the elite and professional level multisport athletes.

There are often three or more types of sports included within one race and the races often involve teams, who must start and finish together. These races often include some running, orienteering, river crossings, climbing, hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, and/or other athletic challenges, sometimes presented as "special tests" or "mystery events" within the race.

This page provides links to some of the Adventure Racing opportunities that may be "just the thing" for you to choose as a goal, prepare for, and go to share in the challenge.
