Get ready for an awesome adventure race in the wilds surrounding the beautiful Teton Mountain Range!
In 2022 our plan is to once again offer a 24-hour and an 8-hour race option. The 24 hour course will involve mountain biking, on-foot travel, and paddling–plus of course lots of fun navigation! The 8-hour course will involve mountain biking, and on-foot travel, with paddling yet to be decided. 🙂
The race will be part of the Rocky Mountain Adventure Series and competitors will be eligible for series points (that could win you a cash prize at the end of the season!)

LODGING and CAMPING INFO
We will update this section as we finalize course location and details.
-Final rankings will be as follows: A) Teams will be ranked by total number of points acquired. B) Teams will be ranked by fastest time. C) Teams not obtaining all mandatory CPs will be unranked, regardless of time.
-All CPs are worth 10 points each unless otherwise specified. There will be a combination of mandatory and optional CPs
-Teammates must stay within 50 meters of each other at all times.
-Racers must cross the finish line before the cut-off time or will be penalized by 2 points per minute for the first 20 minutes. Racers finishing more than 20 minutes late will be unranked. (In other words, don’t be late!)
-Penalty for a miss-punched CP (i.e., CP is punched in the wrong box) is 5 points per infraction. Pay attention when punching!
-If a team member must leave the course early, they must do so at a manned CP or TA and inform a race official. Please do not go home early without letting us know!
-Make sure you have all required gear at all times. Random gear checks may be performed throughout the course. Penalty for not providing required gear is 5 points per infraction.
-You will be traveling in bear country. Knowledge of bear country safety and etiquette is required. Bear spray must be easily accessible on the outside of your pack. Please review this website for some bear safety tips: Bear Safety
-No E-Bikes allowed
-Bikers must yield to horses and hikers.
-NO biking off-trail! If you need to travel with your bike off-trail, you must get off your bike and walk.
-Bib numbers are to be pinned to backpacks and visible, one per person.
-We will be practicing Leave No Trace ethics. Pack out everything you bring in! Please tread lightly and be aware that this is bear country. We would be so psyched if when we swept the course we found ZERO trash!
-In the case of snow or mud (a large probability), please be considerate to avoid trail damage. Please walk bikes through deep mud to avoid rutting up the trails.
-No navigation devices that utilize satellites are allowed! No GPS or using your cell phone for anything other than taking pictures or in an absolute emergency. Bike odometers, barometric altimeters, and compasses are ok.
-Please no dogs on the course (exceptions may be made if you want to bring your pet Ogre).
