Welcome to the United States Adventure Racing Association (USARA). The sport of Adventure Racing is sweeping the nation at a phenomenal rate. The new challenges presented to adventure racers have caused the sport to grow by leaps and bounds daily in popularity. Adventure Racing is one of the few sports where just completing a race is often considered a victory. Another driving factor in Adventure racing is the emphasis that is placed on teamwork, rather than individual achievement.

Adventure Racing offers an easy crossover for cyclist, runners and water sport enthusiasts just to mention a few. Adventure races can vary anywhere from 2-5 person teams, with some events now offering solo categories. The disciplines can also vary from race to race. Adventure racing can include shredding through tight single track on a mountain bike or orienteering and hiking through a dense forest. Adventure racers may find themselves ripping down rapids in a canoe and then rappelling off a 100 foot rock face. The races can last a few hours or several days and can cover 10 - 100 miles or more!

The USARA membership entitles you to all of this and a whole lot more! Joining the USARA gives you a one year license that allows you to race in any USARA Sanctioned event in the nation. USARA members will also receive Adventure World Magazine. Adventure World Magazine is jam packed with exciting race news and training tips. So climb on board, get your USARA racing license, and dive into the exciting new challenges of Adventure Racing.
