ECO LONESTAR SPORT ADVENTURE RACE (2-3 Hour Adventure Race): 2-Person Teams or Solo racers will be challenged on a marked course by 10-17 miles mountain biking, 3-5 miles trail running, 1-2 miles paddling in inflatable boats we provide and mystery events.
ECO LONESTAR EXTREME ADVENTURE RACE (6-12 Hour Adventure Race): 3-person teams will be challenged by 20-30 miles mountain biking, 8-12 miles paddling, 10-15 miles land navigation/trekking, and possible mystery events. Extreme racers must bring their own boats, paddles and life jackets.
There will be two types of points on the course: check points (CPs) and extra points (XPs). The XPs will require greater effort to capture for reasons such as more challenging to find, further from the transition area, or thicker bushwacking to get to them. Teams will be ranked first by the number of CPs collected, then by the number of XPs collected, then by time finished.
CPs XPs Time Rank
Team A 10 10 10:00 First
Team B 10 5 10:00 Third
Team C 9 10 10:00 Fifth
Team D 10 0 11:00 Fourth
Team E 10 10 11:00 Second
Most teams who chose to collect only CPs should finish in less than 6 hours. Expected winning time for the team that captures all points is 10-11 hours. Teams will have to monitor their progress if they wish to capture all CPs.
Winning Extreme Coed team will receive $500.00 towards their teams entry fee into the 2013 USARA Adventure Race National Championship. Top 4 Extreme Coed, Male & Female teams qualify for the 2013 USARA Adventure Race National Championships.

There will be a central transition area where teams can set up. During the race, the teams will pass through this area several times making it possible to reload on food, water, change clothes, etc. There are several legs in this race including mountain biking, trekking and paddling for extreme teams. There are no water stations along the course. Teammates must remain in visual contact with each other at all times. Extreme teams will be provided with topographic maps & will use a compass to navigate to the respective check points during the navigation legs. The course will be marked for the sport course and sport racers will not need to navigate. The paddling is on a lake. If a team member drops out the remaining team members may continue as an unofficial team.

No refunds under any circumstances. Wait! Well maybe. We at Terra Firma understand that things change, sometimes out of your control and we never want to rip anyone off. But please understand that we make a considerable investment in shirts, awards, dumpsters, porta potties, land use fees and a host of other expenses to put a race on. We know your one fee doesn’t effect this number, but if we don’t have a policy and stick to it, where do we ever draw the line?
We think we’ve come up with a pretty liberal policy and hope you agree:
Cedar Hill State Park
1570 W FM 1382
Cedar Hill TX 75104
Once you enter the park gate ($7 fee or free with your State Park Pass), take a left and follow the road to the parking area near the boat ramp. The start/finish and transition area will be at the DORBA mountain bike trailhead. You may drive up to trailhead to drop gear, but must park at the boat ramp.
