Above is a link to the Rev3 Shenandoah Adventure race. It is a 26 hour race that involves kayaking, mountain biking, trail running, and orienteering.
Sounds kinda nutty but it seems to get right at the core of endurance sporting and the great outdoors. I've never done such a thing but would love to get started.
They have divisions for teams of 1, 2 and 4. I would like to assemble or join a team of enthusiast if there are others that are interested or looking for another participant.
Hoping to hear from others that have any interest or experience in the race.
Travis and I did it last year on separate teams. It's a blast, but really tough. I'm sure we'd be happy to get together for a beer and discuss what we learned. Both he and I have done multiple Ironmans and yet this was still one of the hardest races I've ever done, both physically and mentally.
Great to hear from you Phil. Thanks. I'd love to grab a beer and learn more. I very much enjoy all of the activities but have never done such a long race with such obstacles. There is definitely a lot for me to learn. And hopefully, its not out of my range being that i am currently training for my first half iron in May. I'd love to talk.
I am free on Mondays and Tuesdays but could arrange another night if those are bad for you. Feel free to call or text as well.
And if others, are wanting to chime in... please do so. In the end, i'd much rather do this with a foursome or twosome rather than on the solo team.
Here is the report I put up after last year's race (I was on a pretty big endorphine rush, I guess, cause it's kind of long): https://www.dctriclub.org/forum/messages.cfm?threadid=8BC81554-A5AA-BD12-F1E88B8107FA699C
I agree with DoggyBrown. Really tough race. BUT, completely doable if you don't mind pouring a little 5-hour energy down your throat.
We should also get out for some MTB riding soon. Mine is in the shop getting some new brakes but I should be back in action by mid-week.
