Madness Adventure Racing ventured out to scenic Prescott, Arizona for the 12 HOURS AT NIGHT mountain bike relay this past weekend. As the name of the event implies the idea is to complete as many 8-mile laps as possible in 12 hours in the dark.
The course was located at Pioneer Park and Brownlow Trails and was comprised of smooth wide fire roads, twisty single track, good steep climbs, and a couple of well lit tunnels. Those who have run Gilmore Adventure Races should have recognize portions of the course from past races.
Dave Sewell of Go Adventure Recreation and Rick Eastman of Sierra Adventure Sports partnered on this year's event. The race was well organized and staffed. The 12 Hour volunteers were exceptional! Not only were they genuinely friendly, they maintained a cheery demeanor with no sleep. GO Adventure Volunteers Rock!
Madness ran two 3 -man teams and took a 3rd place finish in their division. Madness Gargoyles (staffed by Ryan, Mike, and Jon) completed 14 laps for a total of 112 miles. Madness Alexander Building (staffed by Dave, Don, and Sterling) completed 12 laps for a total of 96 miles.
