Breathtaking views, challenging terrain, and captivating wilderness, set the scene for this 12 hour race of challenge and adventure. Join us in honoring and commemorating a dear friend, fellow adventure racer, and fellow search and rescue instructor, who died while training a few years ago.

Krista spent many years training and instructing at the Civil Air Patrol's Search and Rescue School, based at Hawk Mountain, PA. Proceeds from the race will go to benefit that volunteer school.

We've got a great course lined up for you that will include orienteering, bushwacking, trekking, road and mountain biking, paddling, a ropes section, and a team oriented obstacle course. This race has it all, and it's an event you won't want to miss!

This is a point to point race which will include both mandatory and optional checkpoints. It's a great race for those seasoned athletes, and those ready to move up to the next level of adventure racing.
