Widely known as the “ Toughest 2-Day Race in the Country ", the FIX remains tougher in 2009. Odyssey adds another day, once again, to this challenging and epic adventure race. 50 teams of 2 and 4 persons , along with soloists , will take to the mountains of West Virginia for the 18th Edition of the Odyssey Endorphin FIX Adventure Race. The EFIX continues to expand to a 3-day expedition style race to fulfill the constant requests from racers across the country to have an epic and challenging expedition race that requires a lower financial and time commitment than that of a full 7day or longer event.
The Endorphin Fix will be unsupported throughout this demanding 200+ mile course. The rugged , but scenic terrain of West Virginia and the different disciplines of mt. biking and trekking on fire roads and single track, whitewater rafting, whitewater swimming in class II and III rapids, flatwater paddling, rappelling and ascending towering rock walls, and orienteering though lush forest vegetation will set the stage for an epic event which Odyssey Adventure Racing is known to provide for the wanting adventure athlete.
This event will be part of the 2009 Checkpoint Tracker National Point Series , a series of adventure races from all over the country. Teams will battle it out to be crowned the Checkpoint Tracker National Point Series Champions.
