Second year in a row that I have done this race. This years was way harder than last year, but it was great fun. I had a wonderful time and would encourage everybody who likes endurance sports and a love of the outdoors to do one of these races. The staff is fantastic and super helpful and friendly. This event requires training and should not be taken on by the casual athlete. You are on your own and there is little support along the route. You have to know how to orienteer or you will never find your way around the unmarked course. But that is true of all adventure races. That is why they are ADVENTURE races.
