Big Chill Adventure Race January 23, 2021

The “Chill” is the race that started it all. This year we are going back to the piney woods of Texas and heading over to South Shore Park on Lake Bastrop and boy are we stoked!  This area of Texas is rich with history and we are excited to take advantage!  We’ll serve up all new stuff as well as some old favorites. Expect a tough as nails race, awesome swag, cool special tests, and more. Back to the ‘Chill’, this year is Too Cool’s famous “skip point”. Teams that bring in 5 canned goods per racer are permitted to skip a checkpoint during the race. Donations directly benefit the local community food bank. The race will happen rain, snow, or shine, so be prepared for any type of weather.  Choose the 3-6 hr sprint, the 12 hr adventure or the 18 hr ‘Extreme” adventure race.

Sprint Race
Teams of 2 or 3 will run, bike, paddle, and face team challenges and decisions along the way. This course is designed for the beginner in mind! Too Cool will be providing the boats, racers just need to have a bike, helmet, and a camelback. Be prepared for some paddling, 8-12 miles of biking, and 4-6 miles of trail running plus some surprises. The estimated winning time is 3 hours. This is not an off-road Tri!!
