Central Indiana Adventure Race
Saturday, October 14, 2017
8 AM - 8 PM EDT (12 hour race)
*tentative* Noon - 4 PM EDT (4 hour beginner AR)
The inaugural 2016 Central Indiana Adventure was a great success, offering a variety of fun and challenging aspects in the Fort Harrison / Fall Creek / Geist Reservoir area of Indianapolis. This year, we'll move just a bit east to Anderson Indiana, home of Mounds State Park and the White River.
The CIA Lite offers beginner adventure racers a chance to see what it's all about. A shorter, 4-hour cutoff; less complex navigation; and reduced gear list allow an introductory taste of AR.
Participants travel by foot, bicycle, and canoe in teams (or in the Solo division), using map and compass to find checkpoints. Each team must stay together the entire race. Along the way, they will encounter various natural and manmade challenges that test physical and mental ability and creativity.
For those up to the challenge, a solo division is offered.
The course is designed to keep most participants going all 12 hours, creating a dramatic finish line setting where family and friends can cheer for their team as they emerge from the darkness.

Teams may be three or two persons. The six team divisions are: 2 & 3 person Co-ed, 2 & 3 Female, and 2 & 3 Male. All teammates must remain within 100 feet of each other at all times. The field limit is 50 teams per race length.
Participants applying for the 12 hour solo division must provide a resume of experience. An adventure race of this distance and difficulty is much safer with team support.
To apply for the Solo Division, send a race resume along with entry form and payment. Race resumes should include recent solo or team adventure races, orienteering meets, etc. Include official results as proof. The key issue is safety; that you are a competent navigator and make good decisions with regard to safety. Solo participants are asked to carry a cell phone with them at all times.
