The 2013 Texas State Championship Sprint Adventure Race Series is just around the corner!
Events: Each adventure race includes approximately 3-4 miles of trail running, 7-14 mile mountain bike, 25 - 35 minute canoe & mystery events. The races are designed to take 2- 2 1/2 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 will count your best 3 finishes out of the 4 races (one drop) to award the State Champions and calculate series standings. You must only compete in at least 2 races to be eligible for series awards, so if you do 2-3 races, they both (or all 3) count.
Gear: We provide the Inflatable canoes (Sevylor K-79 model ), paddles and life jackets, so you don't have to worry about additional rental fees or competitors with $1,000.00 boats. You must use our boats, paddles and life jackets. It is advantageous to have a sevylor high back seat for the paddling event. We do not provide these, but you may bring your own. However, you may choose to paddle on your knees or sitting down in the boat or on a beach ball. You must bring and use mountain bikes for all races - no hybrids allowed. You are also required to bring and wear a CPSC certified helmet!

2013 Texas State Championship Adventure Race Series categories
(We provide the inflatable boats, paddles, and life jackets):
The top 10 teams in each division will be awarded at each individual race with trophies (3 deep) & medals (10 deep). The trophies will be unique for each of the 4 races, so if you place in all 4 races of the series, your trophies can be beautifully displayed on a customized stand that will be awarded to the state champions, or purchased by anyone else. In addition, we will have a raffle after every race to award prizes from our sponsors.
We will also award trophies to top 3 OVERALL finishers among the 2-person teams regardless of their category.
Series Champions: The winning team of each category of the Texas State Championship Series will receive a custom trophy stand to hold their series trophies and designating them as the 2013 State Champion. We also typically give out a special prize to our biggest category. (for instance: the 2009 Coed State Champions received a pair of cool cruiser bikes. 2010 - 2012 State Champions for coed and male received Kuat hitch racks! ). In addition, the top 3 podium finishers of each category will receive a custom made prize that can be used for many race seasons to come. Bet you wanna know what it is!
Texas Club/Team Championship: Individual teams may represent a club or racing team in the Texas club/team championship. There is no fee for this. Team/clubs will accumulate points for the finishing positions of their individual teams in their quest to take home the Texas team/club championship trophy. Be sure to select your team or club when registering for each event, if you want to earn points for them.
Kid's Races: This is getting big, and is loads of fun! All races of the series will have a kid's race. Kid's races are free, usually last just a few minutes, and include a run and possible mystery event with plenty of cheering from the racers. Parents are allowed to race with the younger kids. All kid's receive a finishing award and a race singlet for exhibiting the courage to compete - plus they'll love it!
