The Amped Up Adventure Race series are truly races with a cause. Each community the race is held in will select an outdoor initiative that will benefit from the proceeds of the race. Amped Up Adventure Races are a true community effort, with each city embracing the race and putting their own unique stamp on it. The whole race experience will be designed around utilizing and showcasing the unique assets of each community.
The Aurora race will benefit Aurora Downtown Canoe Chute. The canoe chute is a by-pass of a dam on the Fox River that is located in the heart of the community. Its original intention was to create a safe passage for paddlers on the Fox River. Unfortunately, the current design lacks certain features now considered vital, and actually hampers the ability for paddlers to safely pass through the by-pass without spilling out of their boat. Local paddlers have been working for many years to get the Canoe Chute re-designed. Click here for more details about the canoe chute.
Hollywood Casino has taken a leadership role in supporting paddlers efforts to improve recreation on the Fox River, by signing on as the Title Sponsor for the Aurora Amped Up Adventure Race in Aurora. In addition, Scott Shipley, who just completed the design and construction of the London 2012 London Olympic Kayaking facility, has also jumped on board, and has donated new updated concept plans for the Aurora Canoe Chute.
The Aurora Amped Up Adventure Race proceeds and all voluntary donations at the Saturday Night Pre-Party at the Two Brothers Roundhouse, will be donated to this important community effort.
Details for the complete course are still being worked on. The paddle will take place on the Fox River. For training purposes, plan on be prepared for these race components:
