Competition Format

The Cornhusker State Games Adventure Race consists of trail running/walking, biking, water events (no swimming), canoeing (long course), and navigation. Participants won’t know exactly what they will be doing until the race starts…that’s part of the adventure!

Length of race will be up to 3 to 4 hours for the Sport Course, 6 to 8 hours for the Long Course and up to 2 hours for the Family Course. Both the Sport Course and Family Course races will be more of an urban race with some off road sections. The Long Course will include gravel and dirt trails.

Order of events and cut off times will be determined the day of the race.

Race instructions will be given to participants at the start/finish area.

All team members try to complete each section within the race to score maximum points.

There will not be water stations on the race course; however, water will be available at the start/finish area.

Directors have the right to disqualify teams at any time, for not following the course rules, not following verbal instructions from volunteers, and for disrespectful treatment of other teams or volunteers.
