The LBL Challenge -- 12/24 HoursAdventure Race
Kenlake State Resort Park Hardin KYBonus Points: 5
2017 USARA National Championship Qualifier
You're reading it right - the LBL Challenge is actually coming back!!

For 2017, we're reviving the race that got us started in this sport with the traditional 12/24 hour format that we all know and love.

The Land Between the Lakes area has it all, so expect lots of stellar singletrack, a good mix of trail and bushwahacking, and of course paddling on one side or the other (don't worry, we plan on keeping the paddle a reasonable distance and hopefully in the daylight since March may be a little chilly).

We're excited about bringing this awesome race back!

"It ain't supposed to be easy"... and we're sticking to that motto for 2017 with a full-on Expedition Race! This race is gaining a "good" reputation of being a hardcore AR for a reason.

We'll also be offering a friendlier 15 HOUR version for those not quite ready for a multi-day.

You'll have a chance to race in the spectacular gorge area of Breaks Interstate Park (a.k.a "The Grand Canyon of the South") in this early USARA Nationals qualifying race.

Expect a course with NO Dark Zones and hopefully NO short-coursing. We already have a bunch of first-time expedition racers registered, so it's going to be a great race!

We're encouraging everyone that's ever done the Breakdown before to give the Expedition Race a shot - but, if it's just too much - we understand. That's why there's a 15HR race!

There's no place like Maine in the summer. Now in its second year, the Maine Summer Adventure Race will bring racers to the some of the most beautiful parts of the Midcoast Region.

This year's 10-hour race will be point-to-point (no circles!) involving trail running (or hiking) and off-trail orienteering through pristine forests, biking on Maine's bucolic roads (and an optional mountain biking leg), and a sea kayaking route specially designed by our local partner Tidal Transit Kayaks.

We will also be hosting a simultaneous 3-hour race for beginner racers and for those looking to get the entire family outside for a day in the woods.

Both races are hosted by the Midcoast Conservancy and designed by the members of Strong Machine Adventure Racing. All proceeds from the race benefit the Midcoast Conservancy.

This race is the first in the Unbridled Adventure Race Series being held in partnership with Kentucky State Parks.

As part of the series, Top Overall Finishers will be awarded cash prizes! Entry into the series is optional however; it will be a good one all on its own!

For this first race, expect a mix of mountain biking, trekking, and paddling at the beautiful Greenbo Lake State Resort Park along. It’s a great beginner race and an equally good race for those building up to the 12 Hour FIG at Natural Bridge State Resort Park, which is the grand finale of the series!

A FREE Navigation Clinic is being held the evening before to get newer racers ready to find some checkpoints.
