MISSION Adventure Race
Saturday, May 12, 2007
Versailles State Park - Versailles, Indiana
6:00AM - Midnight EDT (18 hour cutoff)
In its fifth year the MISSION has moved to a new site. All new terrain and a new date will give a fresh feel to this 18-hour adventure race which fills in the gap between sprint and 24 hour racing.
The all new MISSION Lite offers beginner adventure racers a chance to see what it's all about. A shorter, 4-hour cutoff, less complex navigation, and reduced gear list allow an introductory taste of AR.
Participants travel by foot, bicycle, and canoe in teams (or in the Solo division), using map and compass to find checkpoints. Each team must stay together the entire race. Along the way, they will encounter various natural and manmade challenges that test physical and mental ability and creativity.
For those up to the challenge, a solo division is offered.
The course is designed to keep most participants going all 18 hours, creating a dramatic finish line setting where family and friends can cheer for their team as they emerge from the darkness.
Navigation (entire event; includes plotting with UTM coordinates)
