About the Races

Getting the Canoe to the water A little creek crossing - part of the funBeautiful Gilchrist county and Hart Springs, Florida will be the location for the 2018 Heartbreaker Adventure Race.

Hart Spring ( http://hartsprings.com/ ) will be the start and finish location, but you can be sure race director Craig Sheriff has plenty of challenges in store for racers with this location on the incredible Suwannee River. Otter Springs, Fanning Springs, Wannee Conservation area  are all just a stone’s throw away from the start.

Primitive tent camping is included with the race, 4 people per site.  RV camping is available at $24 per night, plus tax, up to 4 people. Only two vehicles per site are allowed, for both RV and tent sites.

All the races will feature lagoons and springs.  The Elite Race will be a modified expedition style race, with about every type of biking available here;  new trails, some great single and double track, dirt and paved roads, even some sugar sand and a bit of hike-a-bike!
The Sport Race will also be a modified expedition style race, biking to the Boat TA, then returning to the Main TA via boat.  Ending with a Foot section that contains a bunch of controls, lots of options.
The Family Race will be mostly contained within Hart Springs Park.  Teams will have about 2 miles on bike, paved trails and double track, about 1.5 miles on boat, and ending with about a mile on foot.
All the races will end with a “refreshing” final CP, food, and an awards ceremony.
