It’s that time of year again. Time to do some non-racing! ‘Twas almost exactly a year ago when we dropped a Deuce on a handful of brave souls, and it was a little over 2 years ago when we held our first-ever adventure non-race (Bob’s report here, Casey’s here, and mine right here). We’ve been scouting and planning hard for this year’s Adventure Non-Race, Carnage At the Creek (or CAC for short), and it’s going to be our best non-race yet.

We know you’ve all been patiently waiting for all of the details of this Adventure Non-Race. Well, wait no more! Here you go…

Entry Fees:
NONE!!!

Location:
Racer check-in and pre-race meeting will be held at the Pine Ridge Campground in Mark Twain National Forest. Team Virtus has enough clout to offer you free camping at Pine Ridge! Okay, so it’s free for anyone to camp there, but it’s still a pretty good deal. No showers, though, but there is a vault bathroom and drinking water available. Rumor has it that Team Virtus will be camping there on Friday AND Saturday nights. Feel free to join us before and after the non-race for some more fun.

For directions, here is a Google Map.

Dates and Times:
Non-Racer check-in will take place between 7:30 and 8:30 AM on Saturday, April 21st, 2012. That’s right. It’s the day before Earth Day, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than by non-racing in the great outdoors!

Pre-Race Non-Meeting will start at 8:45 AM, and the non-race will start at 9:00 AM sharp.

Divisions:
Solo, Duo, Trio, Quad, Male, Female, Coed, etc. You can do this non-race however you want to, but please don’t be stupid about it. YOU are responsible for YOU! We cannot and will not guarantee your safety. We are setting up the course, but you are choosing to take part in this non-race as a competitive training event. If you’re a newby, then don’t try this alone. Find an experienced teammate. Don’t have one? Leave us a comment, and we’ll hook you up.

The Course:
Both the 12 hour and 24 hour courses will start and end at the same location. Just kidding. Our CAC will definitely be long and hard, but it won’t be that long.

The course will have a 10 hour time cutoff so that even the beginners will have a chance to finish, but a lot of you will finish in roughly 6 hours. We are much more confident with our time estimates thanks to our friend and AR guru, Kelly Sumner of Off Road Fixation.

Estimated Distances:

Bike 15 – 25 miles including single track, gravel, and pavement
Run, hike, trek, bushwhack, crawl, crab-walk, or whatever 5-10 miles
“Water Event” for 2-5 miles (Muwahahahaha! You’ll have to show up on race day to find out what that means)
