Family Adventure Race

Family Adventure Race

“No, no! The adventures first, explanations take such a dreadful time.”

-Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass

Bring your kids! Grab your parents! Siblings, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins are welcome too! Consider a new way to experience “family bonding.” Multigenerational teams will line up for the start of an elaborate scavenger hunt, using topographical maps to get themselves from checkpoint to checkpoint, through a series of age-appropriate challenges guaranteed to make everyone laugh harder than the latest viral video. Accessible fun for all ages and skill levels.

Race will include foot-only and foot/bike divisions.
