Big Chill Adventure Race January 22, 2022

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 Buescher State Park in 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 or the 12 hr Adventure Race.

Sprint Race
Teams of 2 or 3 will run, bike and face team challenges (special tests) along the way. This course is designed for the beginner in mind! Too Cool will be providing all materials for the special test, racers just need to have a bike, helmet, and a camelback. Be prepared for 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!! This is a real adventure race. This race will be capped at 35 teams.

12 hr Adventure Race
Teams of 2 or 3 will receive trail maps and most checkpoints at the start of the race. This year’s course will include paddling, mountain biking on jeep trails and single track, urban scavenger hunt, O leg section (pre-plotted topo map) & special challenges. Be prepared for approximately TBD miles of paddling, 25-35 miles of biking, and 10-15 miles of trekking. The estimated winning time is 12 hours. This race will be capped at 20 teams.
