ACE Adventure Center and the New River Gorge National River again play host to the Nissan Xterra Points Series. Find yourself in an area rich in history and lore from the days when coal was king. At the turn of the 20th century, the New River was a place of bustling activity in the Gorge towns and these athletes will be racing right through it.

Where: ACE Adventure Center - New River Gorge Oak Hill, WV, (Address: PO Box 1168, Oak Hill wv 25901) - The race starts upstream of the historic Town of Thurmond, West Virginia in the languid waters of the mighty New River.

The Course: Once the starting gun is fired, you will wade into the river and travel with the current for 1.5 miles, navigating a small ripple. Leap from the water at the site of the once famous Dun Glen Hotel, don your trail shoes and begin a run that will climb 1,000 vertical feet to ACE Adventure Center. The 7 to 8 mile run is over single-track trails and forest service roads. Now that you're warmed up, hop on your mountain bike for a 10-mile ride over single-track trails that will take you to the brink of the Gorge where you see the swim/run transition 1,000 below! If you are ready for some good ol fashioned off-road racing, then come on down to Southern West Virginia for the ACE Big Canyon ORT!

Play at Ace: Don't stop there, take a little extra time to play. While visiting ACE, enjoy some of the other activities we offer such as rafting from mild to wild whitewater, climbing, caving, or even take a kayak lesson from one of our ACA certified instructors. As always, camping is FREE for all racers. But don't forget to check out our other on-site lodging options. Be sure to make these reservations early; the cabins and chalets fill up quickly.
