Adventure Weekend

A rugged, fun adventure awaits on this action-packed Memorial Day weekend! Orienteer on Saturday… run, paddle, trek, and mountain bike on Sunday! Navigate your way around Camp Tuscazoar, the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail and the Tuscarawas River to see if you have what it takes to be the champion! Team up with a friend or tackle the challenge solo. Participants will cover up to 16+ miles over the rugged and beautiful terrain of northern Tuscarawas County.

May 25 & 26, 2024

Orienteering – Saturday, May 25

Arrive Saturday afternoon for a challenging four-hour score-style map and compass competition covering the entirety of the Camp Tuscazoar property. You will navigate to more than 40 land features and sites of historical camp interest, located both along the trails and deep within the woods. Locations will have varying point values based on their distance and degree of difficulty to find. The individual or team with the highest point total or the fastest to clear course in its entirety within the allotted 240 minutes wins!

Adventure Challenge – Sunday, May 26

This triathlon-style adventure will include the mountain bike trails on the more grueling and technical West Side Trails. The legs of the event are laid out in a specific order. Competitors will do the challenge legs in order until they finish the course.

Here are the stages in order, along with the estimated mileage:

  • Running: 5 miles
  • Paddling: 3.5 miles
  • Trekking: 1 mile
  • Mountain Biking: 8 miles

Official mileage will be released closer to the race date

Junior Adventure Challenge – Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26

For young explorers, our Junior Adventure Challenge is sure to be a hit! This three-step activity includes an age-appropriate twist on the biking, running, and paddling that is happening over the hill. First, a bicycle ride on the new East Side courses offers an easy introduction to mountain biking. An environmental obstacle course will follow next, challenging every participant to be an observer and student of nature. Finally, the Rain-Gutter Regatta will allow competitors the opportunity to build a boat using recycled materials and then sail it on the rain gutter course, seeing whose ship is seaworthy and can survive the test. This is not a timed event but a chance to be outdoors and enjoy nature while learning in the process. All participants will receive a reward for completing the events. This will be a great experience for both Cub and Girl Scouts, along with any children attending the Adventure Race with their families. A light lunch will be included.
