Schuylkill Valley Family Adventure

Schuylkill Valley Family Adventure

“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 the third annual Schuylkill Valley Family Adventure.

On June 8, multigenerational teams of 2-5 people will line up for the start of an elaborate scavenger hunt, using basic map reading 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.*

With two of the four central disciplines that make up adventure racing, this event is the perfect introduction for those looking to dip their toes into the sport, and for more seasoned racers, it’s a great way to show your families what you do in the woods all day. So join us at Coventry Woods for a fantastic day of adventuring!

*Note that this year’s race does not include biking. We’re making up for it with exciting new on-course challenges!
