I can't wait to try this!

The summer edition of the Michigan Adventure Race is Saturday, June 6 at Silver Lake.

 

I have competed in three other events like this: last Summer at Hoffmaster State Park in Muskegon, the Grand Rapids Art Prize Edition in 2014, and a Winter race at Camp Roger in Rockford earlier this year.

Adventure racing features Amazing Race-style challenges in addition to trekking, biking, orienteering, paddling, and other skills.

 

One of the challenges this year will be sandboarding and I can't wait to give it a shot!

 

You can bet I'll have pictures from this race to share after the weekend.
