Looking for the thrill of a lifetime? Look no further! On April 21st, Rev3 will host one of the most thrilling races in the country: The Epic Adventure.

The 2012 Rev3 Epic Adventure is a 26-hour Adventure Race held in Luray, VA. This race, which combines orienteering, trekking, canoe paddling, mountain biking, and team challenges, covers over 100 miles of terrain. Racers can compete as soloists or in teams of two, three, or four people. Teams, which can be all-male, all-female, or coed, race together throughout the entire course, navigating their path and strategizing the best possible approach.

Although there are 26 hours allotted for competitors to finish the Epic, the course is designed so that all mandatory checkpoints can be found in approximately 13 hours. However, most points collected wins the race, so those in it to win it will go after as many additional optional checkpoints as possible, while still crossing the finish line in less than 26 hours.

Unlike some AR companies, Rev3 provides plenty of details about the race prior to race day. On their website, you can find a descriptive break-down of the race, including the order of disciplines, the approximate distance for each section, and strategy considerations throughout the race. That doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of surprises along the way though!

The Epic is the second race of the season in the East Coast Adventure Racing Series (ECARS), which is a relatively young AR series. In its second year, ECARS has already become the premiere regional series in the United States. With more than $50,000.00 in gear prizes, the ECARS cash and gear sponsorship exceeds that of any other Adventure Racing Series in the country.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, there is also $8,000.00 in cash and prizes up for grabs at the Epic! To learn more about the race and to register to compete, go here. To learn more about ECARS and other races in the series, visit the ECARS website here.
