Thank you for checking out the Never Summer 6 hour race. If you are new to adventure racing, want to get outdoors for a fun time with family or friends, are working on your navigation skills, or a solo racer, the 6 hour version of the Never Summer Race is perfect for you! Please check out the link for the FAQ if you are really new to the sport and have a lot of questions. Below is the gear list, so check that out also and come race day prepared. We know you'll have a great time, so give it a go and register your team to race!
Approximate Distances for the Race:
Mountain Biking: 25 miles (split into 3 sections)
Trekking: 3-5 miles (1 section)
Packrafting (this will be beginner class 1 or less): 4 miles (1 section). We recommend a packraft for various reasons (unknown water levels in July, ease of carrying packraft in case of low water levels, etc), however, teams will not need to inflate the boat during the event and will not be required to carry boat. Alternate boats such as kayaks are allowed.
Note: These distances are subject to change (slightly) and dependent on route choice. Check back closer to race day for a more exact estimate.
The 2017 race will be in a new area, but if you'd like to see what the maps looked like from last year, click the link above.
