Course DetailsWe can't tell you too much.  Part of the skill of adventure racing is adapting and overcoming- being able to strategize on the fly.  So you won't find specific details about the course.  But be bring your mandatory gear and a sense of adventure, and prepare for an awesome journey with friends!  The below-listed disciplines will be included in your course, but may be in any order.  Light navigation/map reading will be required throughout to progress through the course.
