We're looking forward to reading this recent book from an AR legend. Mark got to know his son, who was volunteering while his dad raced at Eco-Challenge Fiji! Also check out his book Running on Empty. If you visit www.indiebound.org, you can order them from a local bookstore.

Marshall Ulrich is the author of Running on Empty (2011) and an expert commentator and contributor to national magazines.

Tired of making up your own adventures? Well, we're tired of not making up adventures for you, so we've created some fun for you in Virginia. For the Quarantine Adventure Challenge, we will mail you a GPS tracker, Rules of Travel, and a map with checkpoints in the areas of George Washington National Forest and Shenandoah River State Park. You must visit as many of these CPs as you like by your chosen means (e.g., trek, bike). The tracker you attach to your pack will give you credit automatically when you reach the CP--no touching needed πŸ™‚ Sign up and you can take any time between May 1 and May 24 to complete your up to 24-hour challenge! Stay safe, stay healthy, stay active, stay happy!

Happy Easter to our peeps.

Don't miss out on another important game we all should play together (until we can all meet at a real TA): Pick your quarantine TA (from the pinned post on our page).

You also learn a lot about your fellow adventure racers this way. Like some don't even care that they only have a buff to wear if the bike trails are good. Or, if you're a race director, it's worth noting that people don't mind hike-a-biking 50 miles if it's with their dream bike :). Also, everyone's thinking about their most annoying former teammate, and some of you are wondering if it's you. (Hint: It's probably not.)

Play along!

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.

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?
