Team up with friends or tackle the challenge solo. Racers will cover up to 16+ miles over the rugged and beautiful terrain of northern Tuscarawas County, picking up checkpoints along the way. Start times will be staggered this year to aid in proper social distancing. If you are planning to participate, please register as soon as possible to help us with event planning!

Competitors looking for a bigger challenge can add an orienteering course and complete the Ultimate Adventure Race and have the time of their lives. This year we will also offer a Sprinter course with a shorter, less intense bike portion which is designed for beginner and intermediate participants.

Participants will run about five miles for the first leg, paddle 3.5 miles on the Tuscarawas River for the second leg, trek for one mile and will mountain bike 8.5 miles to complete the race. For Ultimate competitors, an Orienteering leg will be included as well.

The Tuscazoar Adventure Race is being planned with the assistance of the Tuscarawas County commissioners, the Stark and Tuscarawas campuses of Kent State University, the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, the Dirt Line, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and many volunteers.    

If you wish to volunteer in some way, please let us know through the camp email: or call Nancy Schoenbaum at 330-493-1386.  

Camp Tuscazoar is located on County Road 83 (Boy Scout Rd.) just 1.5 miles south of state routes 800 and 212.
