The Family Adventure Race (FAR) is Saturday, September 27th 2014, from 1:00-3:30 pm (this weekend!). This race is one of our favorite events to put on because it lets parents come out and have fun in the "wilderness" with the kids--or it lets parents bring the kids out to see some of what they do in "grownup" races. Kids from ages 6-16 can come race on a family team (kids and grownups) or a youth team (just kids). Entry is $15 per kid aged 6-16, and adults and kids younger than six race free. You can register here. What is an adventure race? Adventure races combine cycling, running or hiking, sometimes paddling, and always navigation. Your team stays together the whole time--this isn't a relay race--and you use a paper map to figure out where you are and where you need to go. To finish, your team needs to navigate to a bunch of different checkpoints on the map, and can get bonus points for completing "mystery challenges" along the way.
