 YORKTOWN, Va. (AP) - More than 300 active-duty personnel from around the world are expected to compete in this year's All-Military Wilderness Challenge in southern West Virginia.
 
     Registration opened Monday for the competition, which is set for Oct. 4-6.
 
     Four-member teams will compete in five races. The competition includes an 8K mountain run, a 12-mile mountain bike race, a 14-mile forced hike through the mountains, a 13-mile whitewater raft race on the Gauley River and a 7-mile kayak race on the New River.
 
     Event coordinator Michael Bond says the Wilderness Challenge is one of the armed forces' most grueling competitions.
 
     The event also is a regional qualifier for the United States Adventure Racing Association's Adventure Race National Championship.
