Two Rivers Adventure Race – Twelve Hour

“A man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles.”

~ Edward Abbey

The Race

What better way to round out the year than a day of adventuring? The 2017 Two Rivers Adventure Race combines running, trekking, mountain biking, canoeing, and navigation for a semi-urban adventure in and around Wilmington, Delaware. Think you know what Delaware has to offer? Think again! This race features buttery smooth single track, a swift and scenic paddle, unique urban challenges, and land never before touched by adventure racers. This is a perfect event for beginners who want to take on a longer race, with more challenging options for the experienced racers.

Approximate Distances

  • Official finishers can expect to travel at least 8 miles on foot, 15 miles on bike, and 8 miles on the water (31 total).
  • To complete the full course, racers can plan for roughly 20 miles on foot, 27 on bike, and 8 on the water (55 total).
