What To Expect

The Beast Mode ENDURANCE Archery Challenge will be an EPIC event like no other! I'm very excited to be brining this event back.  The BMAC Endurance was scheduled to be our very first event back in 2020 but because of the pandemic we were forced to cancel.  

This event is designed to replicate and simulate what bow hunters may encounter on a wilderness hunt.  It will test competitors mental and physical strength, stamina and endurance.   There are plenty of opportunities to include your family and friends in this event as we have a team category.  Only one person in the team will need to be able to shoot a bow.  



The objective is to complete as many laps as possible in the 8 hours.  There will be targets to shoot on each lap with physical challenges that will be completed before continuing if you shoot a body or miss the target.  Examples of challenges are sled drag, sandbag cary, or other challenges related to hunting.  Each lap will be approximately 2 miles in length and expect some elevation gain and loss!


Shooting Equipment:

Solo competitors and at least one team member must cary a bow.   Sight magnification along with range finding sights and range finding binoculars are not allowed.



Solo - Just me, myself and I doing all the laps and challenges.  


Teams - A team consists of 3 or 4 competitors that will complete each lap together.  At least 3 competitors must be on the course at a time.  Teams of 4 can choose to complete each lap together or have a substitute.  Only one person needs to carry a bow as you will have the opportunity to switch shooters at the beginning of each lap.  


Men and Women


Pack Weight

Solo Men = 30lbs

Solo Women = 25lbs

Teams will need 100lbs divided between your team.  The weight does NOT need to be equally divided.  For every female on a team the total weight can be reduced by 5lbs.  Packs will be weighed between each lap.  If you have a team of four but only three are doing the lap the total weights needs to be distributed amongst those that are on the lap.  

Each competitor/team is responsible to bring their weight ie, sandbag, gear, etc.  


How does this work?

The person or team with the most amount of laps in the allotted amount of time with the fastest time will be the winner.  Laps that are started before the cutoff will be counted.  For example: Team "A" starts their 14th lap at 7hours and 58minutes and finishes that lap at 8hour and 38minutes.  Team "B" finishes their 14th lap at 7hours and 40 minutes but decides to not go out for another lap.  Even though Team B finished 14 laps faster than Team A, Team A will finish ahead of Team B.

Your strategy should be to complete as many laps as fast as you can while collecting as few penalties as possible.
