|Race Overview: Team Backpacker Adventure Racing is at it again! Come out and join us for the third annual Backpacker Bushwhacker Adventure Race. The course is designed for solos, teams of two, three, or four members and features trail running, a professional ropes course, mountain biking, and some pretty basic orienteering. Of course, we will throw in a few unexpected challenges along the way. If you competed in our first event, you probably think that you know what to expect. Well, you don't. This is an all new course in an all new venue for 2012 and it's made up of all the things we love - and hate - about adventure racing.
As the date draws near, we will announce a schedule for a couple of AR skills clinics to include "classroom" time and "on the ground" time. Come learn a few tricks from us and from our fellow competing teams. You can have some fun and become a more proficient and competitive team at the same time.
Watch this website for additional information. We will be updating this page in the coming weeks
