2017 STORM the Eastern Shore 18-Hour Adventure Race


18 Hour Standard Course Info
For all of you who have been training and racing all year and are ready for your strongest race of the year, SBB Racing invites you to an Epic race course designed just for you to wrap up your race year. If you are not ready for a full 24-30 hr race, but are still looking for a challenging long, overnight race, the 18 hr STORM the Eastern Shore Adventure Race will be perfect for you. SBB Racing is continuing in a long-standing history of Epic Coastal Adventure Races in the greater Pocomoke City, MD areas. This is a USARA Points Qualifying Race and features an 18 hr overnight Standard AR course.

SKU: N/A Category:


You’ll start approximately 8 hr into the 24-30 hr race course and complete the rest of the course together, finishing right alongside everyone else. The 18 hr Standard Course features the same CPs throughout the remaining course as the 24-30-hr course, in every discipline. It is complete with Mtn Biking on Sgl Track, Grass, Sand, Gravel and Roads. It will also include our signature “Time Trial” section for overall race time reduction, some “Old-School” type Paddle sections, Daytime and Nighttime Orienteering, and much, much more. Your race entry also includes FREE overnight camping spots before &/or after the race. The 18 hr race as always will feature Cash Prizes or Free Race Entry for top finisher Team(s), lots of SWAG raffle prizes for everyone, Hot Soups, Stews and plenty of homemade Fall food favorites, and a FREE post-race massage for all (What a way to finish a race)! Where can you get this much racing, food, massages, prizes and more for only a 150 bucks? If you’d like help locating a teammate, we are here to help you, just ask!

Boats Rentals

There will be a Boat Drop on race afternoon. Teams may provide their own watercraft. Canoes are HIGHLY recommended for the course based on racers having to place bikes in the boats to paddle, but not required if you think you can strap your bikes on top of a kayak. There are Canoe Rentals available through Pocomoke River Canoe Company and the State Park System.

If you are interested in renting a canoe, please contact Barry Laws at Pocomoke River Canoe Co. (410-632-3971) for complete details and to set up a rental. I believe rental pricing is $50 for the entire race and includes delivery to 1st Paddle Section and removal after the race.


ALL racers race entry includes a FREE Camping spot the night before and the night after the race (Shad Landing – Blue Heron Group Camping Area). There are a number of hotels available w/in 20-30 min of Race Start. Use Hotels w/in 20 mi of Snow Hill for your search engine. Also, there are Cabins in Pocomoke State Park – Shad Landing, for rent. Just contact the Park and make a reservation through them…


Adventure Racing cannot go on w/o a great Volunteer staff. If any racer’s friends or family members are interested in volunteering while you race, please fill out the Volunteer Form and send to mark@sbbracing.com.
