Gold Rush Adventure Challenge.

8 hour race.

Saturday November 11th 2017

Return of the 'Cold Rush'. Our end of year event was an 8 hour as few teams wanted to try a 30 hour event at this time of year. The event was on November 11th with check in on the 10th. A short but expedition style event with the chance of cooler weather and bringing back the classic days of the early Gold Rush events where you had to be ready for anything. Good weather appeared for the event, cool and clear, and teams enjoyed a Sierra course including a 250 ft rappel.

Prize purse: $300 for 1st place team Bones and $150 for second place team Recalculating in the 8 hour race.

History.

Our 24 and 30 hour races are named Gold Rush Expedition Adventure Challenges. The events take place in the Sierra Mountains of central California. The event route and finish is not disclosed until immediately before the event. The events include hiking/running/orienteering, mountain biking, paddling and rope work. Gold Rush Adventure racing has been hosting events since 2000.  

As competitors we know the training and preparation that go into an event. We want to be sure that you have the safest yet most challenging events. We thank you for preparing for the Gold Rush Expedition Adventure or Gold Rush Mother Lode events.
