One of the top adventure races in the U.S., the Checkpoint Tracker Championship, got underway today in the Land Between The Lakes, Kentucky. The non-stop, 24-hour race, offers a course that is over 100 miles in length, and mixes in plenty of trekking, paddling, and mountain biking for some of the top AR teams in North America to contend with.
In all, more than 60 teams, in several categories, will be racing throughout today and tomorrow, with an overall Checkpoint Tracker champion being crowned. The race should come to a conclusion sometime tomorrow afternoon, with a banquet and awards ceremony scheduled for Saturday evening. You’ll be able to follow all the action with live GPS tracking, continually updated leader boards, and news from the field at CheckPointTracker.com.
Good luck to all the teams racing. It looks like a great course in a great setting.
