Description: 8am-3pm Saturday, October 25th at Ace Adventure Resort in Minden (Outside of Oak Hill) participant fee; spectators free this

race, nestled in the heart of Southern West Virginia, combines unmatched scenery with a rugged course that is sure to

challenge the most diehard multi-sport athlete. The trek begins upstream of the historic town of Thurmond where the racers

will swim 1.5 miles in the ancient New River, including a small class 1 rapid. At the old site of the once famous Dun Glen

Hotel, the competitors will begin a 1,000 foot climb out of the Gorge. The seven to eight mile run meanders over single-

track trails and forest service roads passing through and around abandoned coalmines and tiny towns that once lined the

river. The brave souls will then hop on a mountain bike and travel 11 miles on some of the most technical and scenic single-track trails in the east. This is truly-off-the-beaten-path-racing at its finest!
