Long Creek Adventure Race

November 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Long Creek Adventure Race tests teams of two or three, as well as solo participants, to utilize their navigation and endurance skills during this 4 or 8 hour multi discipline adventure. Designed to engage participants via foot, bike and paddle, racers will traverse 40 – 60 miles of various forms including singletrack trails, flatwater, paved roads and forested land to find a series of self-plotted UTM coordinate checkpoints. Racers will use an map provided at the start of the race to seek out the checkpoints dispersed throughout the USNWC property, surrounding public lands and Catawba River. Strategy is vital when setting your course to capture each checkpoint as there is no right or wrong route. Teams/Solo participants with the most completed check points in the least amount of time will come out on top.
