USARA and ARWS have partnered for the 2022/2023 season and one of the top 10 teams at the USA Nationals will walk away with a FREE entry into the Adventure Racing World Championships 2023 in South Africa.

The ARWS North America Circuit will be a collection of the best mid-distance adventure races in the Northern Americas region.  Event organizers set a unique course to test athletes over 100-250km courses of non-stop day and night racing in the disciplines of trekking, mountain biking, kayaking, and navigation. Participating teams earn points towards their North America rankings.

Qualifying teams at the North American Championships will go into a lottery and one team will win the Free Entry into the Adventure Racing World Championships 2023 South Africa.
