Join us in Almost Heaven--West Virginia--and flex those mountaineer muscles. For the inaugural Mountaineer Strong, racers will whitewater raft with a guide on Class III-V rapids down the New River, mountain bike on amazing trails in the New River Gorge, and trek through the beautiful ACE Adventure Resort property.

Once you finish this race, we hope you’ll have a deeper understanding of WV’s state motto: Montani Semper Liberi (“Mountaineers are always free”).
