What is the Kish the Rock Adventure Race - Adventure racing is a multi-disciplinary team sport that involves navigation over an unmarked course. Our 10 hour race will include paddling  / single track and road mountain biking / orienteering / creekteering / trail running. Racers will have 10 hours to get as many checkpoints as they can in that time. The team with the most checkpoints in the shortest amount of time wins. The race is in the name. Racers will find themselves paddling the gorgeous Kishwaukee River and riding challenging single track in Rock Cut State Park. This will be an adventurous course that highlights some top areas in Northern Illinois.

Our 4 hour race will feature paddling / road biking / orienteering / creekteering / trail running. This race will be designed for the beginner adventure racer but will include multiple transitions and disciplines.

Quick tips for gear:  pfd's / paddles / boats will be provided. Racers may bring their own pfd's and paddles, but must use a race provided canoe. 10 hour racers must use a mountain bike. You will get wet during the 10 and 4 hour race so plan accordingly.
