Adventure Race

The seventh annual East Grand Adventure Race is coming up in less than a month and officials are taking registrations.

Hosted by the East Grand Outdoor Education Program and sponsored in part by Ski Rack Sports of Bangor, the Woodie Wheaton Land Trust and First Wind, the race, being held on Saturday, May 12, is designed to get teens and adults outside for some good wholesome physical activity while traveling through rugged and remote eastern Maine wilderness.

This 17 plus mile race includes a one and a half mile off trail compass run, more than nine miles of mountain biking, seven plus miles of canoeing, other challenges along the way and a climbing wall obstacle back at the school’s gym.

Entry fee is $20 per person, which includes trophies, T-shirts, lunch and more than $1,000 in prizes for youth divisions.

Registration deadline is Friday, May 11.
