Team up with friends or tackle the challenges solo. Racers will cover more than 16 miles over the rugged and beautiful terrain of northern Tuscarawas County, picking up checkpoints along the way. If you are planning to participate, please register as soon as possible to help us with event planning!

Two tracks will be offered again this year. The Sprinter track will use the East Side trails for the bike leg. The Ultimate track will incorporate more of the West Side bike trails. Participants in both categories have the option to add an orienteering leg to their registration.

This year, timing will be conducted by Northeast Ohio Orienteering Club (NEOOC) using the SPORTident timekeeping system. Each participant or team will need to carry a small sensor to check in (or ‘punch’) at the completion of each race element and at each control point on the orienteering course. This will be new, but the sensor is tiny and should not impede your performance in any way.

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: info@tuscazoar.org or call Nancy Schoenbaum at 330-859-2288.  

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