Expedition Idaho Adventure Race Moves Dates, Hires Kloser

Earlier this week I posted a story about a new expedition length adventure race scheduled to take place late in the summer of 2011. Now, just a few days later, race organizers have announced that they’ve moved the dates back a few weeks and have hired recently retired AR legend Mike Kloser to help with the event.

Expedition Idaho 2011 (website coming soon!) will now take place from August 14 – 20. The new dates avoid conflicts with both the Raid The North Extreme race, which takes place July 23 – 31 in the West Kootenays of British Columbia and the Gold Rush Adventure Race that ill go down on the West Coast form September 8-11. 
Kloser has joined the staff in order to focus on promoting the event both nationally and internationally, and his wealth of experience has already begun to have an impact on the race. Because of Mike’s suggestions, the course designers are now bumping the length back up to 600km (372 miles) in order to offer a bigger challenge to the best teams in the world. 
As I mentioned a few days back, early bird registration is already open, offering discounts to teams who register before January 1st, 2011. For more information, send an e-mail to funnflip@msn.com, or you can call 208-664-0135.
