 USARA

The sport of Adventure Racing is sweeping the nation at a phenomenal rate. The new challenges presented to adventure racers have caused the sport to grow by leaps and bounds daily in popularity. Adventure Racing is one of the few sports where just completing a race is often considered a victory. Another driving factor in Adventure racing is the emphasis that is placed on teamwork, rather than individual achievement.

Adventure Racing offers an easy crossover for cyclist, runners and water sport enthusiasts just to mention a few. Adventure races can vary anywhere from 2-5 person teams, with some events now offering solo categories. The disciplines can also vary from race to race. Adventure racing can include shredding through tight single track on a mountain bike or orienteering and hiking through a dense forest. Adventure racers may find themselves ripping down rapids in a canoe and then rappelling off a 100 foot rock face. The races can last a few hours or several days and can cover 10 - 100 miles or more!

The USARA membership entitles you to all of this and a whole lot more! Joining the USARA gives you a one year license that allows you to race in any USARA Sanctioned event in the nation. USARA members will also receive Adventure World Magazine. Adventure World Magazine is jam packed with exciting race news and training tips. So climb on board, get your USARA racing license, and dive into the exciting new challenges of Adventure Racing.

Clear Creek County, Colorado
CO
Geared towards adventurous individuals who are interested in an active camp where challenge, personal achievement and camaraderie are the goals. This trip is off the beaten path and is not your typical "tourist activity" involving large groups in heavily visited places. You will spend 4 days in the Colorado mountains rock climbing, rappelling, ascending, traversing on fixed ropes, trail running, and trekking. The final day of the camp will involve summit attempts on two 14,000's peaks. The cost of the camp is only $900 per person with round trip transportation (minimum of 10) or $700 per person without transportation (driving or flying on your own) to Idaho Springs. This includes 4 days of mountaineering adventure, 3 nights deluxe motel accommodations (double occupancy), a technical commemorative shirt, ropes and rigging, guide services, maps, free on-line credit card processing, permits, SPOT live satellite tracking allowing friends to follow your summit attempt on-line, and arrival and after summit celebrations. Food, alcohol, and personal expenses are on your own. Each day's activities have been geared to acclimatize you to the altitude, increasing your chances of standing on the summits of the 7th and 11th highest peaks in Colorado. Join your guide, Gerry Voelliger, to experience a thoroughly planned and hassle free trip on some of his favorite genuine Colorado adventures. Space is limited to 15. Participants must be in excellent health with a high level of physical fitness. Sponsored by Active Endeavors - Davenport, Iowa!
