How do groups of people finish a 200, then a 500 piece puzzle in an hour and thirteen minutes that would take most mortals a week to do? What a great time for all and even faster than last year!!! Our first and second place teams switched finish order for a super close finish!

Next up, check out www.MesaAdventureChallenge.com for a fun scavenger hunt event this October that's so inexpensive it's nearly free. $15pp for an amazing 3 hour adventure and it even comes with a commemorative t-shirt. Hope to see you there.

The battle continued as ARC and Big Fish Creative slugged it out for a great day of racing at Saguaro Lake. While Big Fish needed to finish to win the series, Adventure Racing Concepts kept the pressure on and finished strong with a 28 minute lead at the end of the day. Few finishes have been so fun to see unfold as they jockeyed for the lead throughout the day. It came down to a final route choice decision where ARC went "overland" through 7 or 8 basin's and ranges to get to the final hill climb.

The overall win went to team Boat Anchor as Tim and Bob edged out ARC by a minute with a final run to the finish with soloist Michael Bading in the mix all day too.

In the 3/4 person Male Division team Madness (Orange) finished right at the cutoff time of 9 hours and wins the series.

The recreational division saw Freddie and Rob of team "Denial" finish in 4:38.

After the race team Yoga Slackers (3rd in 3/4 Coed Long Course) kept us all entertained with some incredible Yoga moves on a slackline that many of us compared to seeing Cirque De Solei at Butcher Jones Cove!

Big thanks to our volunteers: Debra, Lisa, Tisha, Peggy, and Deb Lusk our WFR. You made it possible!
