Adventure On Your Own Time 2021

We have one 8-hour course this year in Gunnison County open from June 19 to August 17.

ADVENTURE ON YOUR OWN TIME was born out of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.  However, many people liked the option to go out to do a course whenever they had a chance, so we decided to retain it for 2021.  There will be one course located in Gunnison County.  You may do these courses anytime within the designated 60 day period, June 19 to August 17 to have your results recorded and added to the United States rankings.  The Gunnison County course is an 8-hour course. 

Additionally, we have the maps from the 2020 course which you may request below and complete anytime.  We will not take results for these courses. The Mesa County course is 8 hours. The Routt County course is 12 hours.  The Park County course is 8 hours.

When you do the course, keep track of your route by using a tracking device like Strava, Garmin, or some other app on your phone or tracker.  Take pictures of the checkpoint locations. Additional instructions will be emailed to you once you register.

If you have any questions, please email info@athenaadventures.com
