Be Active Outdoors and the YMCA of Rock River Valley are holding
the Amped Up Adventure Race on April 7, 2013 in Rockford, which will be the
first in a brand new series of adventure races that combine paddling,
bicycling, running, and urban obstacle course components.
Each adventure race is specially designed to incorporate the local
natural assets and terrain of the community with obstacle course components
before reaching the finish line in the communitys downtown area. Most racers
will finish the course in 2 to 3 hours time.
There are five main competitive categories that individuals and
teams can compete in: Amateur Division, Team Division, Corporate Team Division,
Youth Division and Pro Division.
The first race of the trilogy gets started on Saturday April 6th from 2:00 6:00
with the pre-race Amped Up Party. Racers can check in and pick up their race
packets during the party and stick around for beverages and food supplied by
the Olympic Tavern. The race begins on April 7th at 8AM.
The other Amped Up Adventure Races will be held in Beloit, WI on
May 11 and Aurora, IL on June 16.
