Adventure Race – Virtual

Online RegistrationComplete Event Details

General Information

DATE: On your own (Virtual). Must complete by July 31st.

SITE: Lincoln or any place of your choosing

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and procedures we have decided to make this event a “virtual” or on your own event for this year.  This is to ensure the safety of all participants and volunteers.   We feel the safest option for this race is for you to do it with your teammates and families on your own.  Two different formats will be offered. One is specific to Lincoln and the other format can be done on your own – anywhere.  You can choose which ever one you want to complete.  Both formats have been broken into three categories or levels. You can take a stab at Bronze and if you are still feeling good may decide to go for the Gold category.

AWARDS: Custom Cornhusker State Games Finisher medals will be mailed to you.




Bronze: Run and Bike

Silver:  Run, Bike and Challenges

Gold: Run, Bike, Challenges and Paddle (any water craft) or Stage 3 of the Own Your Own format.

Once you have registered further instructions, challenges and if choosing the Lincoln area race, maps, will be emailed to you.  Please track all activities with whatever tracking app or device you use.  Send us a screen shot of your results.  All challenges should be documented with a picture as well.  Please submit those.

Competition Format & Team Gear

Lincoln Area:  After registration you will be emailed instructions along with a map of Lincoln.  That map will contain Check Points (CP’s) for you to find.  Some will be by foot, some by bike and some by water.  Complete these and send in your race documentation to the email provided.

On Your Own:   After registration you will be emailed instructions on the requirements of the virtual race.   Those requirements will give you some direction on what you must do and what you must find as a “checkpoint” (hilltop for example). Some will be by foot, some by bike and some by water.  Complete these and send in your race documentation to the email provided.
