The Blue Ridge Rumble is a beginner-friendly adventure race designed for those who are new to the sport. It is also a perfect race for more experienced racers to do with their families and even kids.
Racers (teams) will have 3 hours to hike/run and bike throughout the beautiful Blue Ridge School property. Teams will be given a map and will set out on a course finding orienteering flags along the way. The flags might be on trails, at buildings, and even old ruins that are all over the school property. The course is not marked and teams will follow the course rules of travel to make their way to checkpoints (CPs). The team that acquires the most checkpoints in the fastest time wins! The ability to read a basic map is important however the navigation will be very basic. A sense of adventure and trying something new is the only thing you need!
If you like to mountain bike, find yourself running and hiking in the woods often and love the outdoors, this is the race for you.
