Episode 1: Michael Garrison, Executive Director, USARA

Join us as we hear from Michael Garrison, Executive Director of the United States Adventure Racing Association. Garrison/Mike/Michael (we call him all three during the podcast) is a longtime racer and not only offers an overview of adventure racing for the new person, but also speaks to what AR means to him and why he is so passionate about the community.

What is a Dark Zone?

A Dark Zone is a time during an Adventure Race when all racing, whether for safety due to darkness or the need to let some weather pass, is halted only to be restarted at first light or clear skies.

A Dark Zone offers a team the chance to rest, eat, look at maps, and regroup. The Dark Zone Podcast isn’t much different. Sit back and enjoy voices from the AR community. We’re happy that you are here.
