A six hour adventure race is a daunting challenge for any athlete...and a wonderful experience at any age.

It's inspiring to see our youngest generation out on the hard, playing in the dirt and having a blast.

Congratulations to Hunter Leininger of team Florida Xtreme for his incredible accomplishment at the B.O.A.R adventure race presented by Pangea Adventure Racing on Saturday, February the ripe old age of 7.

He finished the B.O.A.R. in 5 hours and 34 minutes. The best part of the race according to Hunter was all the swamp mud. At one point he fell into the mud up to his shorts and with the help of his teammate (father) he was pulled free. His only comment..."that was cool...I got dirty :-)"

Hunter sets a great example for all young people who want to enjoy the sport of adventure racing and by competing he ups the ante for the older racers.

See more photos of Hunter on our Facebook page.

UPDATE: Hunter just completed the 4 hour version of the Atlantic Coast Conquest with the help of his 10 year old brother Cameron.

I saw this kid and his brother at the ACC in Jax a few weeks ago. These two will be a major force in AR for years to come
