The 8th edition Odyssey Wild Wonderful 24HR will be a FUN and CHALLENGING event for all adventure racing levels.
Teams of 1, 2, 3 & 4 will trek with map and compass, ride mountain bikes up, over, and whitewater raft through the New River Gorge!!! Racers will get to have a bit of class V fun as part of the Wild Wonderful 24. Ace Adventure Resort will be providing the boats, paddles, helmets and PFD’s and guides for this segment of the race. Teams will be assigned to guides and boats. Don’t think you will be going for a leisurely float down the river. This is part of the RACE! These guides will be “hammering” it out with you down the river for bragging rights. Details will be revealed at the race brief how teams will be placed in the rafts. Wetsuits are recommended (see gear list for details).
This year’s race will offer sweet single track, challenging navigation, and some wild WHITEWATER!!
