Race Description:

Join us for Gold Rush 2024 Summer Challenge Races -- the USARA Nationals qualifier 24-Hour Summer Challenge and a 6-Hour Bike/Trek race.

24-Hour Summer Challenge

Male, Female and Co-Ed Teams of 2, 3 or 4 will cover nearly 50 miles in the Sierra Foothills via trekking, biking, paddling and more paddling using only a compass and a map to navigate from checkpoint to checkpoint in a Rogaine format. The team who finishes the race with the most points in the fastest time before course closes will be crowned our winner and get an automatic entry into the USARA 2024 Nationals.

Pre-race check-in and meeting: 5p July 26 Barrett Cove Recreation Area
Race start: 8a July 27 Barrett Cove Recreation Area
Course closes: 8a July 28 Barrett Cove Recreation Area

Your per person entry fee covers pre-race meeting dinner, race day course, kayak rental, spot tracker rental, post-race food, schwag and festivities. This is a USARA-sanctioned event, so all participants will be required to purchase either a 1-day USARA membership ($8) or an annual USARA membership ($35) and sign a USARA waiver. If you already have a current annual USARA membership that will cover the race period, please enter that number during registration.

We are offering a $50 discount for any racers who will be 25 or under on race day.

Note: Here at Gold Rush Adventure Racing, we don't want cost of the entry fee for a race to be a barrier to competing. We will have limited scholarships available for people for whom the entry fee would be a barrier. Please reach out to us to discuss your options.

Please see the Mandatory Gear list on our website for the list of gear required for all individuals and teams.
