The Resolution Adventure Race (2018)

Family 1-2 Hour, Sport 4 Hour, and Elite 8 Hour Adventure Race

About the Race

What better way to start off the new year than by heading out into the woods for a day full of biking, paddling, trekking, and more fun activities! So kick your new year into gear at the Resolution Adventure Race and welcome in 2018 the right way.

Everyone makes a promise to better themselves in January. Don’t wait to make the change. Make the promise now to inject adventure into your life in the new year.

The event will be action packed as you and your team race all around the Croom Tract at Withlacoochee State Forest Forest on Foot, Boat, and Bike.

We will have races in 3 categories; Family, Sport, and Elite.

For the 4th year in a row the race is returning to Withlacoochee State Forest. There will be some great single track biking and trekking along the Croom trails. If you have never been there, you are in for quite a treat. Paddling will take place in the beautiful Withlacoochee River. A total of 56 teams came out for the race in 2017. So let’s break that record for 2018!

The race will once again be staged at the Silver Lake Recreation Area. But expect to hike and bike some different trails this year. Race director Manny Otero is already hard at work designing a course that everyone will love! Stay tuned for more updates (and some videos) as Manny continues to work on the course.
