The 2013 OGAR will be held Saturday, May 18th with Race Headquarters at the Frisco Trail Mini Storage & Bike Depot, on Willard Road near the Conoco Quarry South of the Willard City Center. (see their webpage 'Contact us' for a map)
This is a multi-sport challenge event featuring running, trekking, mountain biking, orienteering and paddling. All course distances, maps and itinerary are kept secret until race morning.
Participants will race in one of the two team categories; as a 4 person 'Quad' team or as a 2 person 'Duo' team. There are no gender restrictions on either category. In addition, there is a Grand Masters Division for Long Course teams where the average age of the racers on that team must equal 50 or more on race day.

No one will be allowed to stash gear at transition point areas (other than at headquarters)-- doing so will result in disqualification (and will be explained in more detail at mandatory race briefing). Team should plan on being entirely self-sufficient. Water will be available at some transition points to refill bottles/bladders.
Every individual crossing the finish line will receive a special finisher's award. Awards will be presented to the members of each group in the top 3 places of each category: Long Course Duo, Long Course Quad, Long Course Grand Masters Duo, Long Course Grand Masters Quad, Short Course Duo, Short Course Quad, Short Course Grand Masters Duo, Short Course Grand Masters Quad.
