The Michigan Adventure Race: Winter Edition returns to Camp Roger in Rockford on February 6, 2016.

The Amazing Race-style event includes challenges, checkpoints, snowshoeing and fatbike sections.

Two or three-person teams will set out running through the woods to hidden checkpoints marked on a map. Teams will collect as many points as they can within three hours. They’ll find challenges throughout the area along with short snowshoe and fatbike/snowbike sections. Snowshoes and fatbikes will be provided.

Experienced adventure racers can try for checkpoints far from the start/finish, requiring good map reading and basic compass skills.

“West Michigan has a culture for challenging outdoor sports like adventure racing, trail running and mountain biking that does not exist in many other areas in the nation. These races draw far more people than larger cities do to similar events,” says Mark VanTongeren, race director.

Registration is now open. Last year’s race drew 350 participants.
