Adventure Race!

Too Cool Adventure Race

..a 1500 foot sherpa line, paddling in crystal clear waters, 14+ miles of sweet, sweet single track, mine maze, skeet, water slides and a 3000 foot Zipline are just a few of the things you will find at the Too Cool – Spread Your Wings adventure weekend. It’s summertime and Dr. Nicholson is heading down to Texas Hill Country near Rocksprings, TX at Camp Eagle to participate in the 10th anniversary of one the funnest, coolest adventure races around!

Nicholson will be competing with one of his best friends from Texas, Nate Simmons, as a two-man team in the 12-hour race which will Adventure Raceinclude 1-3 miles river paddling, 30-40 miles mountain biking on roads, jeep trails and single track, 15-20 miles trekking, orienteering, ropes stuff and special tests.

The team “F5” will start the race at 7:30 AM on Saturday, May 28 and hopefully finish before the cut-off time at 9:00 PM.

Last time this team participated, the 12 hour race turned into about 15 hours and we had to give up after getting completely lost in the middle of the woods in the dark…  however, this time we are even LESS prepared — neither Nicholson or Simmons remember how to read a topographic map, plot coordinates, plan a route, count paces, and neither has ridden their mountain bikes in a couple of years, and apparently the race area has expanded to include another 5000 acres…  so, this should definitely be an adventure!
