Information - Advice - Warnings: This event will set a new standard for what people refer to as “adventure”. We are bringing true adventure and real challenges to the public. You do not need to be some ultra-extreme professional athlete, you do not need corporate sponsorship, and you do not need any experience. This will be a life changing experience, one you will be talking about long after you cross the finish line.
We will not give away too much information about the course. Surprise is a part of the event. The adventure will take place primarily on private property in the Oregon coastal "hills" near Astoria. Aside from the terrain and natural obstacles, there will be no less than 10 challenges created specifically for the event. Most of the course will be extremely well marked and navigation will be simple. You will be on foot, or on some other portion of your body for the entire event -- you will not be able to just run the course. You will be a filthy mess at the finish.
The fastest finisher will finish in approximately 1.5 hours with the average participant taking about 2-2.5 hours.
The field will be limited to 250 participants -- NO EXCEPTIONS.
There will be many natural obstacles, and many “created” obstacles.
You will need no special equipment and no special training. All equipment provided as necessary.
Camping will be available at the start/finish.
A salmon bake will follow the event and be open to all participants and volunteers.
If you want water or aid on the course you must carry it.
Compasses will be allowed on the course (not needed or required). A sense of direction will also be allowed.
There will be an optional TEAM competition with three divisions. Team winners will consist of the cumlative time of three individuals. Awards will be presented to the top teams in each division. Teams will sign up on the registration forms.
** Be sure your team all lists the same name when registering. If there is a change to a team please e-mail [email protected] :.. Teams may have as many members as they wish. The top three score. Score will be based on cumulative time.
