The ARWS North America Circuit is a collection of the best mid-distance adventure races in the Northern America region. (Canada, USA and Mexico.)

Event organizers set a unique course to test athletes over 1 to 2 days of non-stop racing (some through the night) and participating teams can earn points toward their North American rankings.  (Co-ed team of 4 rankings can be carried into a world ranking.)

The inaugural N. America Championship race will be hosted by Rootstock Racing at the Two Rivers Adventure Race, and teams will need to participate in one other series race and compete as a premiere mixed team to be eligible for the prize of a free world championship place.
