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. If you are planning to participate, please register as soon as possible to help us with event planning!

Participants will run about five miles for the first leg, paddle four miles on the Tuscarawas River for the second leg, and mountain bike three miles to complete the race.

Competitors looking for a bigger challenge can complete the Ultimate Adventure Race and have the time of their lives covering seven miles on our rugged mountain bike trails. This year, participants can add the orienteering event to any of the other races or just enjoy orienteering as its own event. Please select the link below to begin your adventure!
