Discussion: Announcing the Endless Mountains Adventure Race!

in: Endless Mountains Adventure Race (Jun 20–25 - Clarion, PA, US)

We are SO excited to announce Rootstock Racing's inaugural expedition-length adventure race, the Endless Mountains Adventure Race: Elk Country.

Pennsylvania offers endless mountains to explore, filled with wildlife, sweeping vistas, cascading waterways, rich history of our nation's complex industrial past, and rugged (and often rocky) terrain. It is a perfect setting to challenge veteran adventure racers, and it provdes a great entry point for those ready to take on their first expedition race.

Teams of 2-4 will have five days to complete a 342-mile/550-kilometer course, exploring the sprawling, majestic PA Wilds region of Pennsylvania, which is comprised of more than two million acres spanning one national and eight state forests, twenty-nine state parks, fifty state game lands, and countless towns and villages nestled in the mountains and valleys of north-central PA. Teams will encounter local history, paddle scenic waterways, climb and traverse rocky ridges and mountainsides, and trek and bike through some of our state's most remote forests.

Along the way, teams will work together to overcome the challenges that only expedition races can bring: being tested to the physical and mental limits with challenging overland navigation, wild terrain, and weather that can tame even the most hardened outdoors enthusiasts. Everyone will encounter the rich wildlife of the PA Wilds, and the lucky ones will cross paths with some of the 1400 elk that make up one of the only herds in the eastern United States.
