Hogback Adventure Racing Weekend

June 7–9, 2024

Length: 12-Hour and 8-Hour Race Weekend

Tennessee is the perfect backdrop for an adventure race during the summer. This year's Hogback will feature a 12-hour race on Saturday, and an 8-hour race on Sunday. The area's 30-mile MTB trail system has earned the reputation of having one of the premier mountain biking trail systems in the southeastern United States. This race is perfect for new teams while still offering plenty of challenges for experienced racers. Course designer Josh Braun has produced a great course with a limited rogaine format with very straightforward navigation and many choices to pick your own distances. This year's race will have a flat water paddle and will not include any whitewater rafting. the new start and finish location is right on Lake Ocoee at the YMCA Camp Ocoee. We have rented out the entire complex for this event and it will make for a great adventure weekend.
