EX2 Company OverviewThe creators of EXcellent EXperiences
EX2 Adventures was founded in 2000 by Jim and Kimberly Harman with a vision to create excellent experiences, enrich lives, and become the model adventure sports event production company to which all others are compared. EXcellent EXperiences is where the name EX2 originates. Andy Bacon took over the helm of EX2 at the end of 2017 and is supported by 18 amazing EX2 staff members.
EX2 has produced over 250 events around Northern Virginia and Maryland and is one of the largest adventure sports companies in the country. We produce 18-21 events a year, including numerous distances of trail running races, an XTERRA triathlon and duathlon, and several adventure races. Over the past 18 years, EX2 has also produced over 50 cross-country mountain bike races including the popular Cranky Monkey series.
