Join us in the foothills of the Laramie Mountains at Curt Gowdy State Park in Cheyenne, WY, for the Curt Gowdy Tenderfoot Adventure Race. At this beginner AR you and your teammates will trek among towering granite, rocky soil, and timbered hills; mountain bike along some of the newest and best MTB trails around; and paddle on one its three reservoirs (save the epic fishing for another time!).
This race is designed for a beginner--a Tenderfoot--and will be simple enough to learn and enjoy but challenging enough to be considered an adventure race!
The morning of the race, we'll give your team a map with checkpoints and a list of "Rules of Travel." This gives you clues to checkpoints and tells you how you'll get to them--by trekking, paddling, or mountain biking.
Teams will have 3 hours to find as many checkpoints as possible. Each checkpoint and challenge will be given different point values, so strategy is vital. The highest point accumulation in the shortest amount of time will determine ranking. We will have several challenges set up on the course, each involving lots of teamwork. Once the teams have found all of the required checkpoints, they sprint back to cross the finish line.
The Tenderfoot AR is basically an off-road, all-terrain, high-octane scavenger hunt. It's perfect for beginner adventure racers or those who want to practice their navigation skills--you can choose how far and how hard you race. And after this event, you're sure to be hooked!
