Lush forest land, high desert heat, breathtaking views and lung punishing altitude await you during the Happy Mutant Adventure Race Seriesï¿½s stop in New Mexico. Teams of two/four will spend the better part of three days in, and around, the Carson National Forest. With 300+ miles of mountain bike, trekking and white water to cover competitors will face the late summer climate changes that occur between 6,000 and 12,000 feet of elevation.
Plan on spending time in both guided rafts and two-person inflatable kayaks for almost 30 miles of Class II-IV white water. Step into your harnesses for some rappelling and an epic Tyrolean traverse. On the trekking sections alone you will experience 50,000 feet of elevation gain! The mountain bike sections will come close to equaling that total as wellï¿½simple math calculations add up to around 100,000 feet of elevation gain (and, likely, close to that in loss)!!
Trekking, trail running, mountain biking, moving water paddle, ropes, navigation.
