What exactly IS Adventure Racing?

Here's a nice primer on AR from our friend and fellow adventure racer Saleena of Emergency Response Training, LLC. You've probably seen her and her daughters at one of our events racing, volunteering, or both!

Adventure Racing is one of my passions! But what exactly is Adventure Racing? The easiest way to describe it is that it is like an off road triathlon. There is trail running, mountain biking paddling, and orienteering. ...

As the year (and decade) ends, we've taken a look back to notice how we've grown! Thanks to all of you: racers, volunteers, staff, team members, sponsors, support crew, local running companies and nonprofits, friends, and our two kids--we could not have done it without you ❀.

While we still are race directors at heart, we are excited about the newest direction we took full throttle in 2019 with race timing and tracking. Check all of our offerings out at www.enabledtracking.com, www.adventureenablers.com, and www.runandriderace.com.

Special thanks to our partners in 2019 (in no particular order). Looking forward to lots more adventures with you in 2020!

It's the day you've all been waiting for... 11/23, otherwise known as Fibonacci Day!

The Fibonacci Sequence is a series of numbers in which a number is the sum of the two numbers before it (i.e. 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55... and so on), and it can be found just about everywhere you look in nature! From DNA molecules to seed heads to spiral galaxies and hurricanes - the sequence is everywhere! Scroll through these photos for some examples of math in action here at Shenandoah!

Will you guys be putting on the Shenandoah Strong or just the Epic this year?
RVA Racing has your starting line video from the Shenanduro 6/12 hour race. Great venue, cool people and Mark & Margo throw on one heck of a party! We had a blast wrenching and rooting y'all on! Stay tuned as we will have more pictures and info on that Infinit Nutrition "Go-Go Juice" and "4Distance" special sauce we had on tap posted up here soon. Use code "RVA15" for 15% off your order at INFINITnutrition.com #iamINFINIT #RVARacingStrong Virginia Off-Road Series
Here is a GoPro video that captures some moments of the Shenandoah Strong Adventure Race (8 hours): https://youtu.be/1XkNX_is_zc To watch with sound on I highly recommend this race (or its sister Tenderfoot 3 hours edition) as it's a lot of fun for the kids/teenagers - and adults! Thanks to Adventure Enablers for putting such a great race together.
I see on the revised maps that Bluebell trail is closed. We just rode it on Sunday and except for two spots, it was solid. Is there much rain expected during the week?
I'm excited to plot points during The Strong. Will we have to adjust compass for magnetic declination? Or are maps using magnetic north?

Thirteen degrees with a windchill of -5 couldn't keep me off the trails, thanks to my awesome AE buff from last May's Shenanduro! :)
Hey guys! Are you going to be doing the early season MTB races this year? Would love to see the Pocohantas race again, as well as Early Mtn Vineyard and ConRob!
Next time you order hoodies...can you get me a 2xl? I'd love to wear it around!
Great Coverage of the Race!!! Thanks for the videos, photos, updates and responses to questions. This race took dot watching to the next level. Mark Harris, Randy Ericksen, Vladimir Bukalo and everyone I don't know Thank you.
Hello...whats the status of team Bend Racing? Is there a tracker working somewhere?
Looking at the Logistics outline, leg 4 has a cut-off saying we must punch out of 4-13 by midnight on 9/15, but there is only CP 4-01-4-05 listed. Can you clarify?
