July 20, 2019 will be the third annual Tuscazoar Adventure Race. Geography books will tell you that there are no mountains in East Central Ohio but Camp Tuscazoar will prove otherwise. This is a 100% off road race consisting of trail running, kayaking and mountain biking as you navigate your way through the backcountry of Tuscazoar, the historic Erie Canal trail and alongside the scenic Tuscarawas River.
Please stay tuned for more information including registration details, course maps, contact information, etc. We will update posting the first of the year with more information.
Order of Race: Trail run - Kayak - Mountain Bike
Run: Distance: 5 Miles: You begin by a mile long descent to the Historic Erie Canal trail. Catch the trail and enjoy a fast, flat run to the Kayak put-in 5 miles down trail.
Kayak: Distance: 4 Miles: Drag your kayak to the river front and paddle the scenic Tuscarawas River for 4 miles to the take out back at Camp Tuscazoar. If you are lucky, a slight river current will flow in your favor.
Mountain Bike: Distance: 7 Miles: Explore one the newest trail systems in Ohio. Don't let the flat first legs of this race deceive you - make sure you save enough fuel for the 7 mile mountain bike loop that will bring 1200 feet of elevation gain. The MB course consists of single track trail looping throughout the park with lots of steep climbs and fast descents.
If you have enough gas left in the tank - there is an optional Adventure Race portion of the race available. In this portion - you will be timed as you navigate the hills to find 13 checkpoints using only a map and compass.
