Central ORegon TEc

Technical endurance challenge

race overview

Come explore flowing single track, beautiful rock climbing routes and a high desert landscape as you race to collect all the checkpoints before time runs out! With semi-technical foot and bike trails and lots of  elevation gain/loss - this race packs a stout 6 hour punch.   Moderately easy navigation and beautiful vistas (as you top out on a super fun route) gives way to an optional orienteering section that includes jagged ridges, scree slopes, and climbing/rappelling checkpoints.  This race is suitable for even novice racers, although some technical ability on the bikes/foot/ropes is recommended and will likely determine the winners.  As always more difficult points will be "PRO" and optional.
