About the AR Cooperative
The Adventure Racing Cooperative (ARC) was formed in December 2017 by a dozen or so adventure racers. It incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in January 2018. ARC is run by a board of directors consisting of 8-11 elected people from the adventure racing community.
The ARC Board of Directors met quarterly in 2018 and 2019, and now meets monthly. All the meeting minutes and the corporate financials are published.
Makeup of ARC
In addition to the board of directors, ARC has a set of 11 regional coordinators and several other non-board positions including media/marketing/advertising/statistics consultants and liaisons to other adventure racing organizations (like SleepMonsters). ARC has formed partnerships with most of the race production companies in the United States.
As the end of 2019, the Adventure Racing Cooperative has a few hundred members.
