Lake Wauburg: Adventure Race

Adventure Race


Every fall, Lake Wauburg hosts Adventure Race. Two-member teams grind out a 3-mile trail run, a 6-mile trail ride on mountain bikes, a 2-mile canoe paddle and an optional ascension up the climbing wall. Several special tasks included in the contest put the “adventure” in Adventure Race, said Bill James, director of Lake Wauburg. Mental challenges such as changing positions in a canoe without tipping or finding clues around the lake evens the playing field for less athletic competitors. The race is designed around a 2-hour winning time. Prizes are awarded in the male, female and co-ed team divisions.
