Congratulations to the Brocolli Covered Powder Babies for sweeping the Scar Super Sprint & the Nite Nav Challenge.
 
Thanks to all of you who came out to these new style events. We wanted to try something new and hopefully everyone got some enjoyment out of it. A couple teams did both races which is awesome and maybe you will see similar contests like this in the future.
 
The Super Sprint got off to a hot start but cooled off quickly.
 
The route was followed by most but there were a few teams that got tripped up along the way. We know the Clouseau Brothers made a costly mistake on the way to the tube. We're still trying out new ways to keep teams on course while still keeping the adventurous feel.
 
While the heat was intense for the first two legs, the rain rolled in big time near the end for the tube section. Lightning, Thunder, Downpour. Most every team still got through but it would have been nice if the storm held out.
 
For the Nite-Nav Challenge, teams were treated to a really good experience under the learning tree with a clinic covering the basics of AR with Ron Eaglin and some extended canoe time with Greg. There was a lot of valuable information handed out that is often just learned the hard way if ever at all.
 
The teams were all pumped to take on the night and everyone had success with most of the teams clearing the course. It was a good intro to night racing and it was fun give everyone a chance to get their feet wet so to speak.
 
Again we thank everyone who joined us on this Saturday and invite all who haven't to try one of our adventure races. Also be on the look-out to see if we have any Events similar to this in the future.
 

 
The Super Sprint (SS) will be a great course designed for you to race through or just enjoy. Approximate distances are: Foot 4k, Bike 6k, Tubing 1.5k with expected winning team time around 1.25hr (remember there is no time limit).
 
All three segments will begin & end at the Start/Finish TA. Teams will receive a course reference map at Check-In to follow along with and a Punch Card to verify that they pass key locations along the route.
 
Despite holding a map, the course will be marked with the intent for your team to be on target throughout. Think of it as a fun "Adventure Race Lite" where no navigation is required.
 
The only Mandatory Gear is a Bike and Bike Helmet.
 
For more information about SS events read our article about it here.
 

 
The Nite-Nav Challenge offers you a chance to hone your nocturnal skills and take in some short AR clinics to learn more about the sport. We'll go over maps, compasses, and other team techniques before putting boats in the water for some paddling lessons.
 
When the sun disappears the Nite-Nav Challenge takes place. Teams will receive a Map and Punch Card to take on the AR style nocturnal course. Teams will be on Foot and a short Boat section. The cutoff time will be 1.5hr and the race will be scored on the leaderboard below.
 
Mandatory gear is a team Compass, and individual Head-lamps or Flashlights & Whistles.
 
With our Night Series of adventure races starting up in July, this is a perfect way to introduce yourselves to nocturnal navigation.
