Adventure Racing is like an off-road triathlon with paddling instead of swimming. The biggest
difference is that races can be done solo or as a team (the sport’s officially recognized elite division
of adventure racing is 3-4 person Co-Ed teams), AND that the race involves strategy, navigation and
possible surprise challenges (like the Amazing Race). Racers can expect to mountain bike trails,
canoe, run or trek (walk) to about 15 checkpoints using team strategy to complete all of most of them
before the race clock stops. All teams will start and finish the race together (not a relay). All teams
must have at least one adult (18 and over), not recommended for children under 12 yrs old (contact
The course will remain a secret until racer check-in, when all teams will receive their maps and
checkpoint sheet with information. Milford State Park is bordered on three sides by the largest lake
in Kansas, Milford Lake and the scenery and trails are beautiful. The park is a combination of
dense forests, crops, open meadows, ravines, immense shorelines and overall amazing Flint Hills
terrain. Mountain biking will have possibilities of technical single track trail riding, cross country and
paved roads. Paddling may be in coves or creeks or on the main lake. The course may also include
areas adjacent to Milford State Park. Lake Adventures has been organizing adventure races for 5
years and events are known for challenge, terrain, organization and structure that allows teams to
complete the whole course if they are willing to really push their limits. Teams should come
prepared to complete the following disciplines (as a team): Paddling 2-3 miles; Mountain Biking
10-15 miles; Trail Running or Trekking 4-6 miles.
This is an adventure race, not a staged race. Do not expect to have a race provided water refill
station; however, there are plenty of potable water taps throughout the park.
