This event is a production of
GO Adventure Recreation
     The Gilmore Adventure Race will be held on September 27th, 2014.  As always, the race site will be near beautiful Prescott, Arizona.

A portion of the proceeds from this event goes to local Boy Scout Troop 1 to enable them to continue to test themselves with outstanding high adventure activities.  In the past, boys from the troop have taken on many exciting challenges, like summiting Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, Deep Sea Fishing, Epic Backpacking, Paddling the Colorado River and competing in Adventure Races.

     We now offer 2 course lengths,  a 12-15 mile BEGINNER FRIENDLY** (use of GPS reciever is legal) short course, and a long course(no GPS!) covering  20 to 24 miles that will challenge teams of any ability.
     The race is of the sprint variety and will take most teams 4-7 hours to complete. It usually incorporates various disciplines including: Orienteering, Trekking,  Mountain Biking, Paddling, as well as several Mystery Events.
**Note: Beginner friendly means beginner to Adventure Racing.  All participants will need the ability to ride a mountain bike on narrow and sometimes rocky trails.

     This race was originally designed as a way to incorporate the many activities that Boy Scout Venturing Crew 1 took part in and form them into a one day race for the Crew members. Our first event covered a total of 12 miles and we had six 2-person teams made up of our teenaged Crew members.  Over the years, we have grown into a full fledged Adventure Race!

     Now open to the public, it has evolved into one of Arizona's most popular and the state's biggest Adventure Race.  Teams from as far away as Florida and Washington  have come to compete in the GAR.

         The race is named in posthumous honor of a former BSA Troop 1 Eagle Scout named Shane Gilmore. Shane was killed in a tragic car accident involving a drunk driver. We chose to name the race after him because he was very active in the high adventure aspects of scouting, and would have loved the sport of Adventure Racing.

IMPORTANT!  Make sure your team is familiar with the UTM system and how to plot and find points on a map using UTM.  Click here for a tutorial.  Don't let this scare you, UTM is very easy to learn and execute.

IMPORTANT UPDATE 9/26/14 - Extreme Weather is forecast for Race Day.  Come prepared!  High winds will probably demolish EZ-ups.  Rain will soak you to the bone.  This is Adventure Racing.  We are going to allow teams to TA from their vehicles, where the map shows the Gear Drop.  It is very important to attend the Pre-race meeting as we may have other last minute changes based on the weather.  Be flexible.  The weather is a harsh bride....
