6HR, TWO 8HRS AND 12HR VIRTUAL
ADVENTURE ON YOUR OWN TIME
Adventure On Your Own Time (AOYOT) was born out of the COVID-19 era to get everyone out while social distancing. It turns out, many racers liked the opportunity to do a course in a new area at a time that was convenient for them. Therefore, we are offering 4 courses you may do at your convenience. The courses never close.
Racers can register for PDF maps and hit the course when it is convenient for them. Once you register for the course, details on the course and safety information will be emailed to you along with your PDF maps.
Click the registration button above to register.
All 4 courses are available. Register and select one or all of the courses. You will receive PDF maps and information in email. The courses can be done when it is convenient for you. Reporting results is not necessary, but feel free to share photos of your adventure.
AOYOT courses are located at various locations. The 6HR is located in Uncompahgre National Forest. One 8HR is at Taylor Park north east of Gunnison, Colorado. The other 8HR is at Taryall Reservoir in Park County. The 12HR is in north Routt County at Pearl Lake State Park.
Racers will navigate the unmarked course by hiking/trekking, mountain biking (dirt road/trail), and paddling (class I flat water)
Racers may be in any size team, although the standard team sizes are 1 to 4.
There is no required gear for this virtual race, but we recommend the gear listed here.
No volunteers are necessary unless you would like family and friends to be at the transition areas to provide water, food, and encouragement.
We are taking COVID-19 seriously and want to ensure that all our race participants as well as our community, are safe. If necessary we will implement a plan and guidelines in order to keep all involved healthy. More information regarding this will be passed on as race day approaches. For now, please plan to wear a mask when at race headquarters and transition areas, as well as follow social-distancing guidelines. For more information, click here.
