2012 Adventure Race Guide: Southwest
Make this the fittest and most adventurous year of your life with these challenges.
Tex's Challenge Adventure Race
May 12, 2012 Texas Tex's Challenge is a true adventure race in that it includes 3-4 miles of trail running, a half-hour of canoeing and 7-14 miles of mountain biking. But, because of the relatively short distances, it's only meant to take you roughly 2.5-hours to complete. Each team consists of two people who must stay together at all times. Of course, if you're the anti-social type, they'll also let you do the race alone. Inflatable canoes are provided to each competitor as part of the admission fee, which means everyone's on equal footing from a gear perspective once you get in the water. No sandbaggers with pricey boats to blow everyone out of the water. If the bug bites you while you're racing, this is also the first race of the year in the Texas State Championship Series races, so you can go on and keep challenging yourself in three more races throughout the year.
