Stages for Teams in The BEAR Adventure Race 2010:

  1. The BEAR and The Cub -- Start -- both races started together with a physical puzzle: The Brain Squeeze requires blowing up a balloon and navigating through a simple course with the balloon held between the heads of the teammates. Sounds easy, but requires working well together with your teammates. The various abilities of the teams  -- even how well they blew up the balloons -- helped to spread out any congestion during the short portage and at the launch area.
  2. PADDLE -- Portage to and Paddle on St Johns River -- BEAR racers locate 2 check points, one on the east side of the river at Orangedale and the other at and near Davis Landing, and record information at each turn location. With light winds from the southeast on race day, this was a beautiful morning for paddling. The only exception was for the Team XS Baggage, who almost sank one of their boats and had to pull out at Orangedale; they continued unofficially after securing the boat. Fortunately for everyone else, the wind was trailing the return paddle for the BEAR racers. Upon returning to the Main Transition, Teams dropped off their boats and had completed Stage 1.
  3. TrailBlazer TREK - Find three checkpoints along routes through woods but not on or along trails. Route to be chosen by Teams. Teams were given a choice of the order to find checkpoints. Some teams needed better compass skills and will likely practice more next time. At a Check Point in Zone 1, racers encountered a water checkpoint that gave them a break from the heat. Some teams discovered that it could be really slow moving through what they termed "green razors" -- the palmetto scrub. After returning to HQ, teams showed the results of their search for Checkpoints 3, 4, and 5, and received new instructions.
  4. BIKE - Cycle on trails of Bayard Conservation Area, Areas 1, 3, and 4 -- biking on forest trails in three zones of the Conservation Area, plus locating four to five checkpoints. Racers had to check in at Area 3 Trailhead CP, that called on them to determine their progress before heading back to the Main Transition.
  5. TREK with TWO WHEELS -- Only two teams qualified to advance with instructions for Stage 4, which required locating two checkpoints in Area 1, while trekking with one bike per team. Team Disco Ninja Mafia moved through this stage quickly to secure First Place Overall and First in their 2PM Division.

Possible Stages for Teams in The CUB Adventure Race 2010:

  1. The BEAR and The Cub -- Start -- both races started together with The Brain Squeeze described above. The Teams then proceeded to the short portage from the MT to the launch area.
  2. PADDLE -- Portage to and Paddle on St Johns River -- CUB racers paddled to Davis Landing, then trek to locate a check point on the west side of the river at Research Wells near Davis Landing. Record information at this turnaround location. With light winds, this was a beautiful morning for paddling. Solo racer Bill Adams choose to portage back to the MT from Davis Landing. Fortunately for everyone else, the wind was trailing the return paddle for the racers. Upon returning to the Main Transition, Teams dropped off their boats and climbed the BEAR Wall.
  3. TREK with One Bike - Solos went on foot, while Teams could take along one bike. Find checkpoints along routes through woods -- allowed to travel along any trails. Route to be chosen by Teams. After returning to HQ, a Check Point at the Main Transition included balance beams, low crawl and the BEAR wall.
  4. BIKE - Cycle on trails of Bayard Conservation Area -- biking on forest trails in several zones of the Conservation Area, plus locating key checkpoints. Racers confirmed their navigation skills with a check-in at Area 3 Trailhead CP. After biking back to the Main Transition, Teams also needed to complete the slack line challenge to get to the FINISH.
