Blindfold yourself, turn around twice and you will run right into a piece of American history during this event. The Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Underground Railroad, the homes of Thomas Jefferson criss-cross the landscape of Virginia. Centrally-located Amherst and Nelson Counties and the Lazy Days Winery will play host to the HMAR Series over the July 4th weekend. This race will cap off the Jefferson Heritage Festival with one of the coolest post-race parties in AR history!
Adventure racers from around the country and up and down the east coast will compete solo or in teams of 2/4 people covering up to 300 miles in 72 hours in an unsupported fashion. This part of the State contains one of the coolest trail systems, some class II/III whitewater, single track to make you smile and some of the most hospitable folks around. Bone-jarring double track and buttery smooth single track await our intrepid teams. With more elevation loss and gain than any other HM event to date the trekking section boasts some incredible views.
2-person teams will be limited to one (1) 45-gallon gear bin.
