EVENT STARTS APRIL 23, 2016
Event: Bluebonnet Adventure Race (Texas State Championship Adventure Race Series #1)
This is an adventure race and includes approximately 3-4 miles of trail running (this particular race is on ranch roads with minimal trail running), 15-19 mile mountain bike (on ranch roads - beginner friendly for the first race of the series), 25 - 35 minute canoe & mystery events. The race is designed to take 1.5 - 2.5 hours on average. This is a 2-person team race (not a relay) where both racers must stay together the entire time. You may also do this race solo. We give you mileage ranges above because each of the 4 races in this series has different terrain and we adjust the distance to meet the predicted finish times above, so the easier the course, the longer the distance, and the more difficult the course, the shorter the distance.
This race is located at the Ten xXx Ranch in Glen Rose in the beautiful crosstimbers area of Bosque and Somervell Counties (which is at the very top of the Texas Hill Country and 60 miles South of Fort Worth in Glen Rose). The ranch is a working cattle ranch plus an outdoor paradise with over 40 lakes/ponds, over 60 miles of paved roads and an infinite number of scenic views and overlooks. The ranches’ nearly 10,000 acres of rolling hills and oak groves serve as home to an abundance of wildlife, including several exotic species such as Elk, Addax, Axis, Red Stag and many others. The numerous private lakes and spring-fed creeks. You can even enjoying the spectacle of a 50-foot waterfall crashing into a lake where we will be paddling.
