The Venture schedule: 2018.

What is the Venture Schedule?

Well if you must ask, it is a glorified race schedule, here's why it's glorious. This race schedule is going to be joined by all of the backroad adventures that will accompany each race, as well as non race excursions. In it's pre mature state (which you currently see it) Yes, it is a bare bones, ordinary race list, with a bit of diversity. This list will get added to through the season as each trip gets planned (or added post trip for the *more often than not* travels that end up a bit more spontaneous than allows for any sort of careful prep.

What this matters for anyone that isn't me. Well to be perfectly honest, it might not matter at all, but in any case, I will be brining race reports, venue details as well as race organization reviews for most (if not all) of these races, as well as a few races that I will be unable to participate in, unless someone out there has a time machine that would allow me to fit more into my schedule and not simultaneously kill myself. 

Why? I feel that knowing what you are getting yourself into before signing up for a race can help everyone involved. An experienced athlete can plan race strategy, a beginner or first time athlete can paint a better visual picture of what they are getting into, and thereby eliminating some of the pre race jitters that plague newer athletes. Also because I simply love exploring race venues, and seeing what Race Directors are doing with specific venues available to them.

As this list gets updated and checked off, each race and or trip recap will be linked from this home schedule!
