The Gnarliest Kids Adventure Race (THE GNAR) will offer kids, ages 5 through 14, the opportunity to experience the thrill of adventure racing. Teams of two will work together to navigate a variety of challenges. The course is TOP SECRET! Challenges may include mountain biking, running, a low ropes course, problem solving, a climbing wall, and a grand finale obstacle guaranteed to leave a perma-grin smile for your ride home.
The GNAR will begin with instructions and a safety briefing by the Race Director. Competitors will be divided into three groups based on age and will start at set intervals. A start list will be available prior to race. An awards ceremony will take place immediately following the race.
Registration is limited to the first 100 teams. We anticipate this event will sell out early- ensure your space, sign-up today!
Cost: $60.00 per team of two. Registration includes a T-shirt and finishers medal. Proceeds benefit The Mountain Community School in Hendersonville, NC.
