Expedition Idaho Adventure Race
If you're still figuring out which adventure races you want to put on your team's schedule for this season, you really should be considering the Expedition Idaho event which is scheduled to take place from August 14-20 in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. The 600km (372 mile) race will pit coed teams of four against one another in the usual AR disciplines of trekking, mountain biking, and paddling. Sprinkle in some navigation, climbing, and a few other surprises, and you have all the ingredients necessary for a fantastic event.
There are currently 25 teams lined up to compete in ExpId, with some of the top teams in the sports planning on being there. The race will offer points on the Checkpoint Tracker series and is also a qualifier for the USARA National Championship as well. Additionally, any teams that are racing in RTNX, Gold Rush in California, Patagonia Expedition Race, Apex or “One Long Day” at Adventure Sports Week will get a $400 discount on their registration.
The organizers of the race are busy getting everything ready for the start in August, including putting together a great list of sponsors and preparing for a surprise finish, at Silver Mountain Resort,  that should be amongst the best ever at any adventure race. Every team that signs up will also be fully outfitted with a set of outdoor apparel courtesy of Gramicci, as well as a host of other great swag.
Best of all, the race will take place in the unspoiled wilderness of Idaho, on a course and in a setting, that has never been used for an expedition race before. It should be amongst the more spectacular settings to ever play host to an event like this, and that is saying a lot. Expect a great time, a great race, and a great finish.
