Categories:

Description:
Teams of 1-4 will travel across land, water and swamp in Lee County covering approximately 8-10 miles in three hours. Racers will use pre-plotted GAIA GPS topo maps to navigate to check points while paddling and running/trekking through the course. Check points will be placed in various locations using natural features as indicators of placement such as trail intersections, streams, bays, coves etc. This race will feature check points that are meant to be easy to find with no prior land navigation experience needed. We will have very experienced adventure racers on site for any questions about the race, the race is intended to provide an introduction to what adventure racing is all about, this race is also a great opportunity for the adventurous parents to get their children involved. We expect to have children as young as 5 to 6 years old out for this race.
