Buff Betty All-Women’s 4hr and 8hr Adventure Race


As one of only a few women’s-only adventure races in the country, the Buff Betty has introduced hundreds of adventurous ladies to the joys of adventure racing over the years! It is a race for women, directed by women, and a great introduction to the sport.

We are excited to bring the race back to its 2014 and 2017 home—the beautiful and scenic Shenandoah River State Park. It is the perfect venue for the Buff Betty, with miles of fantastic trails for both hiking and mountain biking; just enough terrain to make things interesting; beautiful woods to navigate through; and, last but not least, perhaps the highlight of the park, the scenic and tame Shenandoah River to paddle on!

This year’s Buff Betty will feature 2 NEW races to choose from. Pick your adventure, get your friends together and get ready for an awesome day of adventuring!

The 4-hour “Taste of the Race” Buff Betty ($45) – 10AM-2PM
The best race for those curious about the sport and ready to give it a try. Maybe you have heard about adventure racing from a friend or binge-watched Eco-Challenge Fiji and thought to yourself, wow, that looks like fun! https://www.adventureaddictsracing.com/copy-of-buff-betty-8-hour

We estimate that the 4-hour race will be comprised of around:

  • 2-7 miles Trekking
  • 8-12 miles Riding (more if its mostly road, less if mostly trail)

A little longer, a little harder, the 8-hour Buff Betty. ($90) – 10AM-6PM

The best race for veterans of the Buff Betty and racing in general. Not too long, not too short, this race will be a fun and challenging day in the woods. https://www.adventureaddictsracing.com/copy-of-buff-betty

We estimate that the 8-hour race will be comprised of around:

  • 5-12 miles Trekking
  • 5-6 miles Paddling
  • 15-25 miles Riding (more if its mostly road, less if mostly trail)
  • The final overall race mileage will be communicated to teams before race day.
