Per Racer - $220 per racer on a 4 Person Teams; $240 per racer on a Two Person Teams, $260 per racer for Solo Racers. (The entry form will not differentiate these amounts. It will only list $220. For 2 Person teams and Solos, you may mail in your payment with the correct amount, request a Paypal Invoice for the difference or pay the difference at the race.) The cost includes race swag, canoes, pre & post-race food, and some very nice prizes that will go to the top finishers. Entry is limited to 150 racers on a first come-first serve basis. The deadline to receive race swag this year is April 15th. So we must have your registration and correct team information by that date. Race swag will be a performance shirt and we will offer women's sizes. So for all of the women, please make sure your shirt size selection is what you want for a women's cut shirt. Please contact Zac if you need to make a change in your selection size.
An Unsupported Option is being offered for $35 per racer. This option is for those teams that may not be able to find a support crew. You will be allowed a certain number of bins for your gear that race staff will move from TA to TA for your team. Details on all this will be put out in the racer updates.
This race will be part of the 2013 North American Adventure Adventure Racing Series. It is a "Prestige Inclusion" Race which means there will be $3,000 worth of prizing given out at the race.
About The Race:
The 2013 Adventure Rage is staying in Northern Michigan and although moving east, it will be challenging as you would expect. This race comes back for its 11th year as one of the longest running 24hr adventure races in the country. The Infiterra crew is again teaming up with the River Rats and even moving more into the River Rats home terrain. This will likely be the only day long AR in Michigan and one of the best 24+ hour race in the entire country for 2013.
The terrain and available resources around Oscoda are perfect for adventure racing. There is plenty of water in both rivers and lakes, big hills, single and two tracks for biking and of course lots of wilderness and even a swamp or two. You can also expect some great navigation with challenging orienteering.
We are targetting a 24 hour course this year, but that could still be adjusted by a couple hours either way depending on final course design (probably won't get shorter!). Race winners can expect to be racing over 20 hours. As standard per our events, there will be enough optional checkpoints to keep even the top teams pressing while allowing less competitive teams the opportunity to still enjoy the highlights of the course and finished ranked.
You can count on multiple sections of orienteering along with navigation and route choice throughout the race and the disciplines. You can also expect some great paddling and awesome single and two track mountain biking. This race will be the marquee event of the 2013 Michigan and Midwest AR scene! You do not want to miss it!
Racer Check In, Race Briefing & Post Race Banquet Location:
Warrior Pavilion in the Ken Ratliff Memorial Park
Located on County Road F-41 on Van Etten Lake
Oscoda, MI 48750
Check in, gear check, and the race briefing will all be held at the Warrior Pavilion.
Map & UTM Handout:
Maps will be handed out when your team has completed the entire check in process. We are scaling back the UTM plotting this year. There will be plotting, but we are trying to keep the amount down and will be putting CP numbers with the UTM you get with your maps on checking. The sooner your team arrives and completes check in, the more time you get to spend with your maps.
