Competitors at the Summit Adventure Xstream Adventure Race will test their skills in kayaking, orienteering, trekking, trail running, mountain biking, and optional inline skating across the Rockies. Additionally, team dynamics and mental strength will be challenged by navigating across the 20, 60 or 100 mile courses. People can race as solos, 2 person or 4 person teams.

Nestled into the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Summit County is home to some of the world’s finest skiing and alpine recreation. With four ski areas and trail networks , Dillon Reservoir, and thousands of acres of national forest scattered across its expanse, Summit County is one of Colorado’s best places to ski, mountain bike, hike and boat. Along with its natural beauty, this venue boasts one of the nation’s highest altitude courses. Racers will be clearing elevations of 12,300 feet during the event.

"We are extremely excited to be coming back to Summit County again this year," said Race Director, Will Newcomer. "It is a beautiful venue in the mountains and its close proximity to Denver makes it an easy venue for racers to get to. With the addition of a 6 hour race at this venue it makes it a great race for newbies to the sport."
