Blue Ridge Basics
For those you who haven't experienced the Blue Ridge, it began as Georgia’s first adventure race. Seventeen years later the race continues to be a favorite of racers throughout the Southeast. Teams look forward to a new adventure each year welcoming spring to Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Race Director Ron Zadroga prides himself in creating a great new experience for racers every year and this year certainly won't be an exception!
Organizers of the 17th Annual Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race on April 12, 2014, promise a challenging contest with lots of surprises and some of the most stunning scenery anywhere. Plan to enjoy a post-race party, reception and meal for racers and support. You can buy extra tickets for family members when you register.
Trophies will be presented to Elite co-ed teams of three and masters teams of three; and to Sport co-ed teams of three. Open teams of one, two and three will receive a finish time and finisher award. Of course, everyone gets lots of great swag!
So get your team ready to run, paddle, mountain bike and navigate (and MORE!) in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains. Up to 100 teams of one, two or 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.
