This IS The Flow: a truly beginner-friendly Adventure Race to introduce you to the best sport in the world!
April 14th, 2018
Get ready to bike, paddle, trek and navigate your way around Frankfort’s Capitol View Park in a FOUR hour Adventure. NO prior navigation/orienteering experience is needed for this one and ANY bike will suffice. We’ll also be partnering with a local canoe/kayak livery for anyone that doesn’t have their own boat.
If you can use a road/trail map you can do this. Absolutely no prior navigation skill is needed.
What is Adventure Racing?
An Adventure Race (AR) is simply a race in which participants use a map and compass to locate checkpoints (CPs) utilizing specified modes of travel (biking, trekking, paddling). The goal is to locate the most CPs in the allotted time. There is no set course so you are free to choose any route you’d like – this makes AR all about strategy! Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about getting into this sport.
