This spring the Shenandoah Aqua Blaze will have you hitting one of the most picturesque rivers and mountain trails Virginia–or anywhere, really–can offer. The adventure starts with a 12-mile paddle section on the Shenandoah River followed by a 12-mile trail run, trek, or walk through the mountains of George Washington National Forest to the finish line. With this new race format you’ll only need a pair of running shoes, water supply, and race nutrition. Sign up to compete, or just come out and enjoy a day of paddling and running at your own pace. Soloists and two-person teams are welcome. After the race, enjoy a great BBQ meal and view the other exciting events at the REV3 race site. This race is limited to the first 25 soloists or teams so sign up soon!
