The BendAR 12 and 36 hour Adventure races
Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 7:00 AM (PDT)
If you like exploring the wilderness with your friends then these are the events for you! As is typical with an adventure race, the courses are secret until just before the start when you will be provided a map and instructions. Choose your level of exertion, each course packs in as much single-track trail, water and exploration as possible in the time alotted.
12 HOUR EVENT
Plan on twelve full hours of fun and a great sense of achievement as you complete the course. You will need a mountain bike and all other standard gear for this event. While teams will not need a kayak, there will be a water segment of this event that requires a 'packraft' for each participant Here is a link to an example raft on Amazon.com. http://www.amazon.com/Intex-Explorer-200-Boat-Set/dp/B000051ZHS/ref=sr_1_29?ie=UTF8&qid=1307716720&sr=8-29
36 HOUR EVENT
A majestic tour through the best that Bend has to offer- we found the area to be rich in trails, secret caves, fun water features and far more than we could pack into a week of racing. We provide the kayaks, so pack up your gear bins and bikes and make it to this second installment of what has become an annual event. As with the 12-hour event, teams will need one raft per person. Expect to be using your packraft often in this event. More information to follow on Alpaca rafts.
For both events we are quickly accumulating some fantastic SWAG items. Each participant will receive a custom Hydroflask:
