Your Maquoketa Area Chamber of Commerce Presents The Timber City Adventure Race!

The Timber City Adventure Race is a total of 25.1 mile Adventure Triathlon. It includes Canoeing/Kayaking, Biking, and Running.

HUSCO International is our Honorary Timber City Adventure Race Sponsor!

There is both a Recreation Division and a Racing Division.

The Canoe/Kayak… is an 8 mi. course on the Maquoketa River beginning at Canton. You will wind below towering limestone bluffs and through secluded valleys on scenic route to Royertown Bridge access. This is the 2nd bridge you will come to. Exit on left side, carry canoe past clear zone, run up drive to get bike or pass your race chip ankle bracelet if on relay team.

The Bike… A 14 mile course that starts with a challenging incline – one of the steepest in Jackson County, continues with several rolling hills, a steep decline with sharp right turn at the bottom and long flats to gather speed. Biker must follow all traffic laws, including stop at Highway 61 before crossing. Helmets are required.
(No drafting allowed)

The Run… is a 5K (3.1 mile) mostly flat course starting at Hurstville Lime Kilns. Head south on old Highway 61, follow the signs and course directors through the turns in Maquoketa.

Water will be available at each exchange (and on run course). Volunteers will be stationed throughout the course.
