A triathlon format adventure race to raise money for causes in the White River Valley and Mad River Valley of Vermont.
This race was originally started in 2011 as a relief effort to help families in the White River Valley of Vermont affected by Tropical Storm Irene. Over the years this race has grown and changed. Now that the need created by Tropical Storm Irene has subsided, monies raised are going to support other area causes.
