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.” At our fifth annual family race, presented by inHabit Architecture and Design, 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.
