Virginia State Parks Adventure Series
Virginia State Parks and Appalachian Power have created a fun and exciting series combining 11 weekends of wildly different outdoor races held in state parks. Events vary from a 5K run to a 62.2-mile triathlon and include adventure races, mountain bike and cyclocross races, sprint triathlons, a 13-mile kayak run, half marathons and everything in between. Unlike most racing series, winners are chosen by total points, which are based on the mileage and difficulty of each race. At the end of the season, points will be tallied for the top eight finishes, and winners will receive the prize packages listed on the link below and additional prizes as sponsors come onboard. Many individual events also have prizes, and several have early bird rates so book early.
