Rockstar Adventure Race

Welcome to Year 10 of RockstAR! A unique points-based adventure race with a “choose-your-own adventure“ format designed for racers of all levels. A four or eight-hour day of pure AR excitement from which you and your teammates will walk away truly feeling like Rockstars that you are!

RockstAR is typically made up of two separate stages. The first stage may feature a marked course pitting racers against the fantastically fun trail networks surrounding the host site, in a battle to buy valuable time for the second stage. Teams then have until the 4 or 8-hour mark to tackle an unmarked rogaine-style course featuring multiple checkpoint options, where strategy and decision-making is equally weighted with speed and endurance.

Teams that reach the most checkpoints before the designated cut-off times will be ranked accordingly in their respective race categories. However, the RockstAR race experience doesn’t end at the finish line – the post-race buffet and after-dark lakeside rock party is one that you will definitely want to stay for!  Complete details are provided in the racer information package below, or check out our FAQ’s page for answers to the most frequently asked questions.
