Racers will take in spectacular views in an all-new section of Illinois' remote and rugged terrain. Teams will trek, mountain bike, paddle and complete ropes challenges along the way. Entry fee includes great race swag, post-race meals, maps, canoe rental, professional race management and unique awards.
