Like a triathlon, adventure races involve several disciplines typically consisting of: mountain biking, paddling, and trekking/running.
Unlike traithlons, racers compete on teams and chose their own rout, relying on teamwork and navigation to move as fast as possible over varied terrain
America's Toughest Race is the vision of Jason and Chelsey Magness-- professional adventure racers on one of the most accomplished adventure racing teams on the planet, Team Bend Racing (formerly Yogaslackers).
As competitors, Jason and Chelsey have raced all over the world, with over 60,000 hours of racing time between them.
