What’s an Adventure Run? It’s a trail race mixed with a treasure hunt! As you run the 5K trail loop, keep track of where you are on the map to spot checkpoint flags hidden just off trail. Each flag gives you a time bonus. 95% on trails, 5% venturing off the trail to snag the flag.
What’s an Orienteering Race? It’s like an adventure run except the “treasure” is often located further into the woods and may require taking a bearing with a compass to find it. Come to our free clinic – it’s easy to learn! A great option if you like a mix of trails and off-trail adventure. Likely requires about 4-5 miles on foot (many run or fast walk the trail portions and hike the off trail).
Who? You! And anyone who likes trails and the outdoors, especially those who like an extra challenge, reading a map, finding hidden things. Race on your own or with friends or family members. Your kids will like the “hunt” part of the adventure.
