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 3-11 elected people from the adventure racing community.

ARC's mission is to promote and grow the sport of adventure racing in the United States.​  We have a set of core values and a set of bylaws to guide us in achieving this mission.

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.
