The Blue Ridge Rampage is the premier race on race day that will take teams all over the Blue Ridge school property, as well as outside of the school for over half of the race. With 60-70 % of the race on private property, teams will be treated to some special sections of land very few people have had access to. With the days getting shorter in early November, teams will be racing in the dark at both ends of the race for several hours.
Teams can expect significant elevation gain and loss, sustained climbs on the bike, technical off-trail travel and mountain terrain, biking on miles of purpose-build MTB trails, several foot orienteering courses, beautiful Virginia back-country gravel road riding, picture postcard scenery, overlooks/vistas and maybe even a winery or two!
The Rampage will be hard. If you are addicted to adventure racing, love pushing yourself and are ready for a challenge, this is the race for you. Bring your climbing legs and your compass—you are going to need it!
