The Amped Up Adventure Race series returns to Aurora for a second
season and is scheduled for June
16 2013. A very exciting element to this years race is that it
will be done in conjunction with Blues on the Fox helping
to open the brand new RiversEdge Park in Downtown Aurora. The new park is going
to provide an ideal backdrop and will showcase the tremendous natural assets
that exist throughout the Fox Valley region blending into the re-energize
downtown core that Aurora has developed.
The 2-3 hour adventure race will
include paddling, running, biking and an urban obstacle course component. The
17 mile course includes a shaded route along the Fox River for runners, a bike
ride through the beautiful and private Mooseheart Campus, and a brisk
downstream paddle on the beautiful Fox River. This year the Obstacle course
will be located at the brand new RiverEdge Park. There will be four main competitive
categories in the adventure race that individuals and teams can compete in:
Amateur Division, Team Division, Youth Division and Pro Division. There will be
pre and post race parties where participants can check-in beforehand, and relax
afterwards. Who could ask for anything more? It time for you to get Amped
Up and come and see for yourself what all the excitement is about!
other Amped Up Adventure Races will be held in Rockford, IL on April 7 and
Beloit, WI on May 11.
