MASH Racer Thresholds Clarification
If the MASH 6 hr race has 50 paid racers by April 12, the MASH 6 hr race will be held.
If the MASH 12 hr race has 50 paid racers by April 12, the MASH 12 hr race will be held.
If both races reach the 50 paid racer threshold by April 12, both races will be held.
If neither race reaches the 50 paid racer threshold by April 12, neither race will be held.
Paid racer counts are being updated daily.
(12 hr info)(6 hr info)
We've heard plenty of interest in these races, but now it's time to find out who's serious about racing!
Each of these races needs a minimum of 50 paid racers registered by Friday April 12, 2013 in order to be held.
If you're thinking about racing or getting friends to race, now is the time to let us know!

MAFF 2012 Results!
A listing of how teams did within their division is now available from the Events page.
Work continues on detailed results, race recap, and many more images.
MAFF 2012 Volunteer Thank You!
Normally we place our "thank you" to volunteers in the race recap; but we've been hearing so many good things about how smoothly the race went, how well the volunteers did, and how friendly they were, that we can't wait any longer!
As a result of the heaps of praise being thrown at these rock star volunteers, Ya Mule has decided to invest in rock star transportation for our highly valued crew in order to get them to the next event, and from TA to TA, faster than ever - and in style.
"Air Mule One" just arrived and should be ready to go for MASH 2013!
THANK YOU vols!!!! You guys were awesome!!
MAFF 2012 - Most Exciting Finish Ever!!
Ya Mule congratulates MAFF 2012 Overall Winners Thunder Chickens!
Pete Wentzel, Jeff & Mike Phillips, and Carrie Johnson came over from Minnesota and made it worth the drive!
Nabbing 49 of the possible 52 check points while battling Green Paw Adventure Sports and Elk Bones neck and neck the entire day made for quite a race!
Complete MAFF results, recap, and many images are on the way!
Elk Bones Wins 2012 First Basis Adventure Series!
Ya Mule would also like to congratulate Elk Bones for winning the 2012 1st Basis Adventure Series!
As champions, they take home a cool $1000 to split amongst themselves and spend any way they want.
Elk Bones faught valiently all day at MAFF, but fell just short of continuing their streak of being the only team to ever win this race.
An incredible run, and an outstanding year of racing for these guys!
Race directors Paula Waite (SMAR), Andy McCarthy (SKMC), and Mike Rubens (MAFF) would once again like to thank Doug Pastrich (1st Basis) for all he has done over the years for the sport of adventure racing and for helping us tie these three great Wisconsin races together and get this series off the ground!

MASH 12 and MASH 6
Sad news in adventure racing land.
Due to the unfortunate timing of other commitments (some expected, some not), both our race director and multiple key volunteers we will not be in a position to put on our Spring races in 2012.
We fully expect this to be a temporary situation and are already thinking about MASH 2013!
We also fully expect MAFF (our long-running traditional Fall race) will go on as usual and likely be better than ever!!
As luck would have it, our friends to the south are hosting some Spring events and we very much encourage you to try out their race which falls just after when the MASH races would have been.
All the info you need can be found at: Eyes of the World Adventures!
MASH 12 and MASH 6
Since it appears we are not going to have a real winter this year, might as well ramp-up for adventure racing!
Planning and discussion are underway for MASH 6 and MASH 12. Keep an eye out for important updates!
