Unbridled Adventure is a series of four adventure races organized by Flying Squirrel Adventures and presented by the Kentucky Office of Adventure Tourism, in partnership with Kentucky State Parks. The races will grow longer and more difficult, in terms of both physical and mental challenge, as the season progresses. Each course will be designed to ensure that most beginners are able to complete the race within the allotted time, while veteran racers can challenge themselves by going after more difficult bonus checkpoints. The exception to this rule is the last race in the series, The Fig, which is not recommended for inexperienced racers. There will be a free navigation clinic on Friday night before the first three races in the series.
Each race will include mountain biking on trail and road, trekking on and off trail, paddling on flat or slow-moving water, and navigation with topo map and compass. A given race may also include a short PFD-assisted swim or other AR-discipline for which no special expertise is required. All races are open to soloists and teams of 2, 3 or 4. All races are USARA-sanctioned and qualify for points in the USARA national standings. Additionally, Unbridled Adventure is a series that qualifies for additional points under the new USARA points guidelines!
The Fig X is a Regional Qualifier for the 2013 USARA Adventure Race National Championship. If you are not a current USARA member on race day, you will need to purchase either a one-day membership ($8) or annual membership ($35). For more information about USARA and what membership and sanctioning mean, visit their website. Please take note of registration deadlines, as extensions cannot be granted, due to deadlines for ordering shirts, maps, meals, and the like. Registration closes two weeks before each race, without exception.
