have raced it every year. “We love to see that,” said Mark Harris, Rev3
Adventure race director. “It shows us we’re doing something right, and it
shows us that Wyoming has a lot to offer. Every year the race takes
participants to different regions of the state, offering up varied and
unique terrain and challenges only found in Wyoming.”
Six international teams are competing, and three teams are from Wyoming.
In conjunction with the State of Wyoming and with the generous support of
Cameco Resources, this is Rev3 Adventure’s fourth year of bringing this
multi-day expedition race to Wyoming. An adventure race is a mixture of
biking, paddling, and trekking based on a navigation foundation. The
winning team is determined by the most points collected on the course in
the fastest time.
