Description:

NMARC first sprint race of the year is designed to introduce new adventure racers to this exciting sport with a 5 hour course.  Don't let the length of the race intimidate you; adventure racing is a low intensity sport.  If you can cross the finish line of a 10k then you are plenty fit to complete a sprint distance adventure race.


Teams will be mountain biking, trekking, and paddling as they navigate with a map to find checkpoint locations.  You will not need any advanced navigation skills, just basic map reading ability.  The course format will be modified rogaine, which means teams have the freedom to choose the route they follow to find the checkpoints and what order to go after them.  Also, there will be far more CP's than any team can possibly acquire in the time allowed (i.e. nobody will be clearing the course).  This race format rewards strategy and route selection over speed and endurance.  Additionally, each CP will have a separate point value depending on its distance from the start location (generally the farther the distance the higher the point value).  Scoring will be based on the accumulated point values of the checkpoints found within the time allowed.  How your team chooses to put the pieces together will largely determine its outcome as there is no single best route to accumulate the most points.

The event will start and finish at Elliott's Bar & Grill in Corrales where we will be having a post-race buffet (included in race fee) and handing out lots of swag and t-shirts to all participants.

This event is limited to 50 racers and has sold out in the past so register early.   Those that register prior to May 3rd will be guaranteed their shirt size.
