No Sleep Adventure
24-Hour Adventure Race
8-Hour Adventure Race
June 10-11, 2017
2017 USARA Regional Qualifier
Join us for an epic journey through the rocky valleys and rugged bluffs of the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois. This year we're offering both a 24-hour race and a beginner friendly 8-hour race. Both races are open to 2, 3, and 4-person coed and open division teams, and soloists will be allowed in the 8-hour race. The No Sleep Adventure is fully sanctioned by the United States Adventure Racing Association, and is a regional qualifier for the 2017 USARA National Championships. Racers will take in spectacular views in some of Illinois' most remote terrain. Teams will trek, mountain bike and paddle, and 24-hour teams will complete a ropes challenge along the way. Entry fee includes great race swag, post-race meals, maps, canoe rental, professional race management and unique awards.
