Im new to the club and dont know a lot of you yet, so i wanted to see if there are any adventure racers out there? Or even any triathletes looking to add another element of challenge to raceday? I want to put together a 3-4 person coed team to race the Jersey Inferno, a 10-hour adventure race in vernon, NJ on June 14th (http://nyara.org/2013/02/25/jerseyinferno/)
For those who don't know, adventure racing combines mountain biking, trail running, kayaking and orienteering into one epic sport! My sister and brother-in-law are the race directors for the Inferno and tell me this years course is going to be awesome: lots of vertical, some open water swimming, and true DH mountain biking. i want to put together a competitive team so if there's anyone out there who has interest, let me know. Ideally it would be a 3-4 person coed (that's the most competitive category) but there is also a 2 person team option. I would like to get at least a couple of training sessions in as a team, especially if nobody is an orienteer (that's my weakness.) So let me know ASAP if youre interested (either here or on my email: firstname.lastname@example.org) and i encourage the whole TRI community in DC to consider racing this race...or ARs in general, theyre a fun time that compliments tri very well.
This actually looks awesome and I'd totally be in for it but can't schedule any races until the fall, so I'm out for the Inferno.
There's also a Rev3 Race in the Shenandoah Mountains in April I know at least a couple of club members do.
