  • MAFF 2013 Results!

    MAFFers, please review the detailed results that can now be found within the 2013 Race History on the Events page.   After reviewing passports again and considering conditions on race day, we've decided to be a little more lenient with regard to answers given for two of the paddling CPs that seemed to cause issues for a significant number of teams.  

    If you have any questions/concerns regarding the results, please contact Mike before Saturday Nov, 9 at which time results will become final.

  • MAFF 2013 Results, Recap, Images!

    CONGRATULATIONS to all MAFF racers for surviving a very challenging course on a challenging day!   You guys never cease to amaze us with your determination and great attitude!!   Special congrats to Tim, Anna, and Erik of Rib Mountain Racing for being the only team to clear the course, and with just under 8 minutes to spare! That amazing achievement against stiff competition gained them 1st Place and the title of MAFF Champs!

    Detailed results and many many images are being sorted through and you'll see them here in phases over the next few days. We also have a few items added to our Lost and Found, so be sure to check back there later if you're missing any gear.  

  • Rib Mountain Racing Wins 2013 First Basis Adventure Series!

    Rib Mountain Racing's incredible feat of getting all the CPs not only earned them the overall win at MAFF, but also broke the 1st Basis Adventure Series tie they were in with Elkbones coming into the race.   Congratulations!!   A great day at the office for Rib Mountain, but also for Elkbones and MAD S who kept the pressure on all day long!   As champions, Rib Mountain Racing takes home a cool $1000 to split amongst themselves and spend any way they want.   Elk Bones was in hot pursuit all day at MAFF, but fell just one CP short of the winners in a race just as exciting as 2012.  

    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 keep this series going!

  • MAFF 2013 Registration Still Open!

    Registration closes Friday October 25th!  
    We had very good response to early registration and would like to sincerely thank the teams who were able to commit at that time and help us in our planning.   It is not too late to get in, but time is running out!   The winner of the 1st Basis Adventure Series will be determined at this event and we're expecting a very close finish!   Come out and race with some of the top teams in the region, or just come out for the challenge and fun of it all like most teams will be doing!   (info)
  • MAFF 2013 Early Registration Discount Ending Soon!

    Save significant $$ getting your team in by Saturday October 5th!  
    If any concerns exist about whether or not this race will be cancelled as was necessary for MASH earlier this year, erase those thoughts!!   MASH was under a different set of circumstances.   MAFF will happen!   However, please make it easier on the race director and all those involved by getting your team registered earlier rather than later.   Looking forward to seeing you out there!
