If you’re a runner or a biker this is prime racing season. Cool temps, cadio fitness peaking, and lots of races to choose from. Life doesn’t get any better than that.
If you’re looking for something a little different, Kent State and Portage County Parks have announced their 3rd annual Brady’s Leap Adventure Race. Adventure in the title pretty much says it all. It’s got a little of this, a little of that, and a whole lot of unpredictability. Here’s more details:
Brady’s Leap Adventure Race – Oct. 23
Starts at 10 a.m. at Kent State’s Student Recreation and Wellness Center, Kent.
$30 for Kent State students and Student Recreation and Wellness Center members; $40 for non-members.
This race consists of biking, paddling (canoeing/kayaking), orienteering, rock climbing and trail running. Racers will have to use navigation skills as they are given a satellite image map and topographic map of the area and need to plot out how they will reach each checkpoint.
