Expedition Idaho Adventure Race

If you’re still figuring out which adventure races you want to put on your team’s schedule for this season, you really should be considering the Expedition Idaho event which is scheduled to take place from August 14-20 in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho.

The 600km (372 mile) race will pit coed teams of four against one another in the usual AR disciplines of trekking, mountain biking, and paddling. Sprinkle in some navigation, climbing, and a few other surprises, and you have all the ingredients necessary for a fantastic event.

There are currently 25 teams lined up to compete in ExpId, with some of the top teams in the sports planning on being there. The race will offer points on the Checkpoint Tracker series and is also a qualifier for the USARA National Championship as well. Additionally, any teams that are racing in RTNX, Gold Rush in California, Patagonia Expedition Race, Apex or “One Long Day” at Adventure Sports Week will get a $400 discount on their registration.

The organizers of the race are busy getting everything ready for the start in August, including putting together a great list of sponsors and preparing for a surprise finish, at Silver Mountain Resort,  that should be amongst the best ever at any adventure race. Every team that signs up will also be fully outfitted with a set of outdoor apparel courtesy of Gramicci, as well as a host of other great swag.

Best of all, the race will take place in the unspoiled wilderness of Idaho, on a course and in a setting, that has never been used for an expedition race before. It should be amongst the more spectacular settings to ever play host to an event like this, and that is saying a lot. Expect a great time, a great race, and a great finish.

  1. Thanks, Kraig! We are so excited, and just found out that Light and Motion is signing on as a sponsor as well, so more great prizes for the racers…
    The finish is AWESOME, and course is shaping up great… hope you'll be bale to be out here with us – I'll spring for the ticket!

  2. Awesome news Dave! Are they the same Light and Motion guys behind the Solite 150 headlamps? I just got one in to test, and so far I'm very impressed. Really cool stuff.

    And I'd love to come out for the event. I have it tentatively on my scheduled for August. 🙂
