How To Qualify For The USARA Adventure Race National Championship
The top 4 Coed & Open (male or female) teams from each regional qualifying race qualify to compete in the USARA Adventure Race National Championship. This is a roll down system: If one of the top 4 teams does not accept, the slot will roll down to the 5th place team, etc. until 4 teams accept. Teams have 14 days from the day the USARA sends the National invitation to accept and submit a deposit before the slot rolls down to the next team. Coed Masters & Collegiate teams have open registration and do not need to qualify.

Late Qualifiers Can Be Used For The Following Year
Teams that qualify after September 1st have the option of using the qualifying slot for the current year or using the qualifying slot for the next year. Teams cannot use the slot for both the current and the following year.
Regional Sponsorship Program
The 1st place coed team from each regional qualifying race will receive a $400.00 sponsorship, provided by the regional qualifying race, to be applied to the teams entry fee for the USARA Adventure Race National Championship™. If the 1st place team does not attend, the sponsorship will roll down to the 2nd place team, etc. Teams will be credited the $400 once the regional qualifier has paid the sponsorship fee to the USARA. Teams may only win one $400.00 Regional Sponsorship Bonus per year. If you bring multiple teams, each team is eligible to receive the Regional Sponsorship Bonus.

If a team qualifies at one event (but does not win the event) and registers for the National Championships, then later the team wins a qualifying race, that team would receive the Regional Sponsorship bonus from the second race. The team would have qualified at the first race provided all four qualifying slots are filled from the first & second race. If all four qualifying slots are not filled from both races, the team will qualify at the event which has an open slot. This system helps open qualifying slots for other teams.
Regional Champions Jacket Program
The winning team members at each regional qualifying event will be presented with a custom Champion System USARA Regional Champion jacket at the awards ceremony.
