LENGTH: 12 Hours
WHERE: Red River Gorge Map
WHEN: November 4, 2017
Registration deadline is 11:59pm EST October 22nd.
The Course: The Classic Red River Gorge Experience. This is the longest running Adventure Race in Kentucky. Spectacular views and a tough, rugged course are a given. Here is what we’re willing to share about the course:
- You’ll be paddling on the Kentucky River.
- Your bikes will get muddy.
- You’ll likely get cliffed-out and bushwhack through some thick rhododendron.
Point to Point: We’ll be transporting you from Natural Bridge to somewhere in the general vicinity of Beattyville. It’ll be up to you to figure out how to get back to your car in 12 hours. We will be providing you with a handy topographical map of the area for you to plot checkpoints on. That’ll help, we hope.
