Six straight hours of running, biking, swimming, paddling, all with orienteering your way with a topo map and compass...trying to find the way points. It's exhausting.

The mudder obstacles are no big deal. Running the 12 miles is the hardest part. It's a great time when you do it with friends.

Yes, "Super adventure club" is a pseudonym for scientology. Iasac hayes quit the show over their portrayal of scientology in an earlier episode so they killed him.

@Arlington - Yeah. The races are all time based. (How many waypoints can you reach within the allotted time period). Some get stupid long. (48-72 hours). fu(k that

The stimulating part of the adventure race is the strategy. They're typically designed so you can't possibly get all of the waypoints. The most difficult are weighted with a higher point value than the easy ones.

The really challenging races have no mandated order of disciplines (you can run, bike, or swim as much and in whatever order you prefer).

Racer X @ over 4 years ago

Stone Mountain, GA 30083, USA

Ec668eae09619b562068ea5a4a7bce15

The good races also don't give you a pre-marked map. You get a topo map and a list of coordinates designating the locations of the waypoints and their associated values. You have to plot your own coordinates. If you fu(k up...it's your fault.

There's something inherently insane about a group of people willingly paying to have their bodies beaten, bruised, cut, sunburned, and covered in ticks (leaches sometimes)... ...just for bragging rights.

Equipment ain't cheap, either. A good mountain bike, a kayak or canoe, a vehicle to haul it all...all of the proper shoes, clothes, PFD (personal flotation device), camelbak, supplements, etc.
