Good to know for each Adventure Race:
 

 
2014 is here and off to fast start thanks to the 2014 Resolution AR!
 
Teams took to the hard packed trails of the Lake Apopka Restoration Area for two quick moving races. With a clear blue sky and a crisp chill in the air it was a beautiful day to compete and have fun in Florida.
 
The weather held out nicely and the wind conditions on Lake Apopka for the paddle were not overwhelming (if you stuck to the shoreline). Teams definitely had to work hard to cover ground on all three disciplines which gave some advantage to the fittest.
 
In the Elite, there was a challenging Orienteering Course at the end to cap off their run. It was the big navigational test for the day and to clear the course you had to get to that discipline in good time as it took most of the leading teams over three hours to complete.
 
We had a nice match-up of teams that will see each other next month at the 72 hour Sea 2 Sea AR. Not only that, more than 38% of the racers were first timers to Pangea. That's a welcoming ratio of veterans and rookies to start off the new year.
 
The top three teams were very close throughout. Team Super Frogs eventually pulled away starting with the Boat. Remaining relatively flawless throughout, they they cross the finish line in just under seven hours and over 20 minutes ahead of the closest competition. A very good primer for next month's expedition.
 
Honey Stinger was also represented members of Mojitos on Monday and the two teams were steady as always leading into the big race. Good'Nuff slotted in right behind them and shook off an oversight on the last Bike that cost them a lot of time. They actually tore through the last Foot in under three hours. We'd love to see the girls compete on the big stage one of these years.
 
We Blame Pangea got to all the CPs and were just eight minutes overtime for the one point penalty. Actually the top seven teams will be racing next month with the Sheriff's Posse (Craig finally racing and Tanya volunteering like always), Mia's Misfits, and DEAD AHEAD all getting in some great practice for the big day.
 
Onto the Sport, it was definitely a course where speed was the key. The Cow Tipping Dwarfs picked up right where they left off last year and flew through in great time. Not too far back were two relative new teams that have hit the podium in both of their Sport races. Team Zachless and Epic Saddlebaggers were literally neck and neck finishing seconds apart. Great sportsmanship was shown by the two teams at the end who were basically side by side throughout.
 
Rounding out the top five, Special Ed had a great performance just missing the podium. One of the highest placements for the guys for any of the teams they've been on. The Other Orlando Hash House Harriers have been in the top five in all four of their races.
 
Down the line an incredible 20 out of 26 teams cleared the course in time. Even more amazing considering 30% of the racers were new to Pangea. We're excited about the Sport-level competition in 2014 and expect to see a lot of tight finishes.
 
Big thanks to long time adventure racer Manny Otero for designing the course for a third straight year. Hopefully he's our man for this race again in 2015.
 
Also we would like to thank the St John's Water Management District for allowing us to be at the Lake Apopka Restoration Area. We love utilizing new venues and this big beautiful place is great for events like ours. We fully support all the restoration efforts being made and can't wait to see what the future holds.
 
And they're off! We've hit the ground running in 2014 and we're expecting it to be the best season yet. Thanks to everyone with the resolve to get out and race with us to start the year and we look forward to all the competition and camaraderie set to come. See you next time!
