- There’s no better place for a beginner adventure race! ACE Adventure Resort is opening up its 1,500 acres in beautiful and rugged West Virginia for our inaugural Mountaineer Tenderfoot AR. You and your team will have 3 hours to find as many checkpoints as you can by trekking and mountain biking in the awesome New River Gorge area before racing back to the finish line.
We offer two "types" of Tenderfoot categories: Family and Adventure Class. The Family team (with 2- or 3-person teams) must have at least one member younger than age 16 and participates in a shorter, easier version of the Adventure Class course. (It's still an achievement for teams but not meltdown inducing.) The Adventure Class (soloist or 2- or 3-person teams) offers a longer, more challenging course with a lot of optional opportunities to really have an adventure and hone those navigation and trail skills. (Note: We have found that if the youngest team member is 13 or older, Adventure Class is a better choice, offering more of a challenge.)
