Unbridled Adventure Race Series

More Information

Visit Flying Squirrel Adventure's web site for race series details and to register your team.

Unbridled Adventure is a series of four adventure races organized by Flying Squirrel Adventures, in partnership with Kentucky State Parks. The races will grow longer and more difficult, in terms of both physical and mental challenge, as the season progresses. Teams are made up of 2, 3 or 4 people.

Each course will be designed to ensure that most beginners are able to complete the race within the allotted time, while veteran racers can challenge themselves by going after more difficult bonus checkpoints. The exception to this rule is the last race in the series, The Fig, which is not recommended for inexperienced racers.

Each race will include mountain biking on trail and road, trekking on and off trail, paddling on flat or slow-moving water, and navigation with topo map and compass. A given race may also include a short PFD-assisted swim or other AR-discipline for which no special expertise is required.

Lodge Rooms/Cottages are available with special discounted rates at each park location listed under “Adventure Race” room block.
