Course Length: 10 hours or 6 hours

Race Format
In 2022, VentureQuest will feature both a 10-hour and 6-hour adventure race. In each event, competitors are tasked with navigating to find a series of checkpoints, all while trekking, biking, and paddling the beautiful areas in and around Schaeffer Farms and Seneca Creek State Park. There are plenty of surprises, twists, and decision-making in this race, all of which will cost or save time for each team.
Team members must travel together the entire race. VQ is not a relay. That’s part of the fun! Your team is as fast as your slowest teammate! The best teams will work together and help each other to go fast as a team.
