Other Race Series
Barebones Evening Adventure Sprint Tournament, a series of very short adventure races held on weeknights in the greater Seattle area. The events involve mountain biking or road biking, running, and map reading, and they're barebones, meaning the emphasis is on providing a quality course.
"Thank you for a really excellent race on Saturday. My brother-in-law and I did the mini-beast and were pleased we both came in 2nd place among the women and men's fields! The course was really fun and I was delighted that you picked a gorgeous day to do the race. Congratulations, and we'll see you next year!
