Local Teams

Teams are a good source of information, experience, and support. Whether you are new to racing or want to take your racing to the next level, find your local teams, reach out for questions and maybe join them for some workouts.  

Team YogaSlackers


Team YogaSlackers - an eclectic mix of extreme  endurance athletes, master yogis, rugged adventurers, and talented slackliners (some members are all four!) who all share a passion for environmental education and awareness.  


About the Team:

Expedition Adventure racing is about three things:

  • A penchant for extreme suffering
  • A penchant for perserverance against all odds
  • Teamwork

It is about being good at a lot of things and not being great at anything.  No amount of pre-planning has ever led to us having a smooth race.  We just expect things to go in an unexpected direction.  This kind of thinking makes life in general a little bit easier too.  So whether we are lost in the middle of the Australian outback with no food or water, stranded with no headlamps on top of a desert spire as the sun sets, or the Peace Love Car runs out of gas in Nowhere, Wyoming...someone will inevitably say with a smile, "It's just adventure race training".

Synergy AR

About the Team:

A cohort of athletes from southern California have come together to try and satiate their appetite for outdoors, adventure, and racing. Team Synergy AR (formerly Team Baconnaise) consists of 7 racers that are trying to alleviate the clogging of our arteries by jettisoning ourselves over mountains via bike, bushwhacking for an elusive checkpoint, kayaking or swimming anywhere we can find water, and going as hard as we can wherever we can. The team participates in adventure races, triathlons, duathalons, mountain bike races, trail runs, and anything else we can get our hands on. In 2009 our athletes competed in over 15 races throughout California, mostly under the guise of Team Baconnaise,  and successfully amassed multiple podium finishes. In 2010 the team will compete in local races and also attempt to make a national name for themselves as they compete in multiple checkpoint tracker series that feeds into the Adventure Racing National Championship.

If you have a love for the outdoors, affection for bacon, or a passion for competition, you have something in common with us.

Jeff Hobbs - Married, 5 kids, teacher, wrestling coach

Matt Nighswonger - Married, teacher, wrestling coach, football coach

Tyler Sutton - Married, 2 kids, teacher, wrestling coach










We race most 3 to 6 hour races but have done and will do longer races too.

When we race we have 3 things we always keep in mind.  1) have fun 2) stay friends 3) finish the race

We like to do the shorter race because we all have families and responsibilities that take up most of our time.

We are fully sponsored by The Athletes Foot of Las Vegas.  An awesome local shoe store that is the nucleus of racing in Las Vegas.

Founded : 2002

Location : San Francisco


 Racing Focus : Sprint


About the team:
Like most adventure racing teams, Taintastic is represented by expert riders, runners, trekkers and paddlers.  Just kidding.  We actually grew up together and thought racing would be a fun way to stay in shape.  At first, it was a matter of survival and a resounding need to aviod injury and embarassment.  Despite watching Marty strip down to just spandex to scale "the wall" at the end, we were hooked on racing and the team would grow bigger and stronger.
Taintastic is based in San Francisco and has been racing since 2002.  The team has completed a variety of races including sprint and medium (6-12 hr) distance adventure races, urban races, Bay to Breakers and a few marathons

Tecnu Extreme - StaphAseptic


[ info by  Earring Doug Judson ]

Founded : I started this team summer of 1997 for the Eco Challenge "Race for a Space" that was Mark Burnetts race held in Malibu. I originally named it " Esprit de Corp" which loosely translated means " A group of individuals working towards a common goal." We still to this day carry the Esprit de Corp motto with us on our race jerseys. We have been Tecnu Extreme/StaphAseptic adventure racing for the past 3 years.  We have a killer, super supportive sponsor whose motto oddly and coincidentally enough, turned out to also be " Esprit de Corp." What a natural fit!.

Location : Core team is located mostly in California.  Davis, Sacramento, Oakland Hills specifically, and then Tahoe, Texas, Colorado, and Washington.




The Team:

  • Earring Doug Judson-Founder/Team Captain, logistical guru, and Public Relations dude.
  • Charlie " Sherpa" Kharsa-Co captain/Co navigator and pound for pound one of the toughest guys out there. World class Whitewater dude.
  • Mari Chandler-team "whip cracker", "Queen of the Machine," always with a smile pushing the team, the gal who drives the pedal to the metal and dares the boys to go harder. Fastest runner in AR. Once ran a 4:32 mile.  NOT kidding!
