Description:
Are you ready to get up and get out?  Think you are tough enough for the Too Cool challenge?  Back for it's 8th year running, The Big Chill Adventure Race offers something for veterans and beginners alike.  We serve up all new stuff this year as well as some old favorites plus all the things you have come to expect from us... a tough as nails race, awesome shwagg, cool special tests, and more. Back to the 'Chill' this year is Too Cool's famous "skip point".  Teams that bring in 5 canned goods per racer are permitted to skip a checkpoint during the race.  Donations directly benefit the victims of the Central Texas wildfires.  The race will happen rain, snow, or shine, so be prepared for any type of weather.  Race headquarters will be at South Shore Park at Lake Bastrop. If you need camping, we highly recommend you reserve tent sites or cabins soon because this is a very popular park.
Course Information:
Big Chill  Sprint Race:  Teams of 2 or 3 will run, bike, paddle, facing team challenges and obstacles along the way.  This course is designed for the beginner in mind!  Too Cool will be providing the boats (real hard sided canoes), racers just need to have a bike and a camelbak!  Be prepared for approximately 1-2 miles of paddling, 8-10 miles of biking, and 3-5 miles of trekking plus some surprises.
