The Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race
Blue Ridge, Georgia
Site of the 2008 USARA National Championship
In the spring of 1998, the first Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race started as Georgia’s first adventure race. Nine years later the race continues to be a favorite of racers throughout the southeast. Teams look forward to a new adventure welcoming spring to Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.
Organizers of the Tenth Annual Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race on April 12, 2008, promise a challenging contest with lots of surprises and some of the most stunning scenery anywhere — plus the famous Blue Ridge hospitality racers have come to expect and enjoy.
So get your team ready to run, paddle, mountain bike and navigate in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains. Up to 100 co-ed teams of three (plus one support person) will run along the forested trails of the Chattahoochee National Forest, paddle on the Toccoa River and/or Lake Blue Ridge, mountain bike steep trails and complete mystery challenges along the way. Although the course changes from year to year, the finish line is still in downtown Blue Ridge City Park, with live music, food and relaxing fun. Come early and enjoy activites throughout the day in the Blue Ridge City Park. The first teams to finish usually come in around 1:00 to 2:00 P.M. You don’t want to miss it!
The Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race is a USARA National Championship Qualifier.
Blue Ridge will be the host location for the 2008 USARA National Championship Race.
