VentureQuest is a sprint adventure race where competitors are tasked with navigating to find a series of checkpoints, all while trekking on and off trail along the Bull Run-Occoquan trail system cooridor, biking the demanding single-track of the Fountainhead Mountain Bike Trail system, and paddling the slow moving waters of the Occoquan Reservoir. Solos and teams of two or three have the option of competing in the 3-5 hour course, perfect for beginner/sport racers, or a 5-9 hour course, designed for sport/elite athletes. There are also plenty of surprises, twists, and decision making in this race, all of which will cost or save time for each team.
