Rock Dallas Adventure Race (2015 TSCARS #2)
This is an adventure race and includes approximately 3-4 miles of trail running, 7-14 mile mountain bike, 25 - 35 minute canoe & mystery events. The race is designed to take 1.5 - 2.5 hours on average. This is a 2-person team race (not a relay) where both racers must stay together the entire time. You may also do this race solo. We give you mileage ranges above because each of the 4 races in this series has different terrain and we adjust the distance to meet the predicted finish times above, so the easier the course, the longer the distance, and the the more difficult the course, the shorter the distance.
TEXAS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES RACE:
This race is also part of the points series for the Texas State Championship Adventure Race Series (TSCARS), where the top teams in each division will be crowned at the conclusion of the 4-race series. Teams receive points according to their finishing place in each individual race.
We will count your best 3 finishes out of the 4 races (one drop) to award the State Champions and calculate series standings. You must only compete in at least 2 races to be eligible for series awards, so if you do 2-3 races, they both (or all 3) count.
Here are the 4 races in the 2015 series.

No refunds under any circumstances. Wait! Well maybe. We at Terra Firma understand that things change, sometimes out of your control and we never want to rip anyone off. But please understand that we make a considerable investment in shirts, awards, dumpsters, porta potties, land use fees, Course setup and a host of other expenses to put a race on. We know your one fee doesn’t affect this number, but if we don’t have a policy and stick to it, where do we ever draw the line?
We think we’ve come up with a pretty liberal policy and hope you agree:
Cancellations greater than 21 days prior to the event will receive a 90% refund or 100% credit to another race within a year.
Cancellations within 15-21 days prior to the event will receive a 50% refund or 100% credit to another race within a year.
Cancellations within 8-14 days prior to the event will not receive a refund but may receive a 50% credit
towards another race in the same year.
Cancellations within the last 7 days prior to the event are not eligible for any refund or credit because we’ve already spent your money.
Alterations to the course, start time, disciplines and venue (to within a reasonable distance) are not
grounds for a refund/credit, nor is plain ol’ bad weather.
