We look forward to starting the 2016/2017 Adventure Season with a race favorite, Sprint Poker Orienteer, August 20th. The event offers courses for beginners, intermediates, and long course runners. The meet lays the foundation for the season where we gradually introduce participants to the sport of orienteering and build upon other elements of adventure racing such as cycling, paddling, trekking, and team challenges. August is a busy month with post events leaving little room to explore other racing options. August 13th is PAIR Day, August 20th is our orienteer meet, and the garage sale is on the 27th. September offers numerous orienteering and adventure race events in the local area and we’ll be posting those shortly. To our newcomers, there are tons of things to do in the Kansas City metro area. We try to stick with our themes of orienteering, off road cycling, paddling, and adventure racing as introductions to the sport. That said, we’ve been in the Leavenworth area for 14 years and we can probably provide you advice on other events or point you in the right direction. We’ll be at PAIR Day so come by our table and meet your adventure racing team.
We offer a special incentive for those racers wanting to discover the sport of orienteering and adventure racing. Racers, big and small, completing 5 of our events receive a FREE professional, race/bike jersey handcrafted by Voler racing apparel in California . For the past 4 seasons, we recognized 67 team members awarding them the adventure racer jersey. Our oldest member was 67 with the youngest racer being 10 months old. Mom and dad carried the little tyke all over the race course. We look forward to recognizing 2016/2017 season racers. Also, for those dedicated racers who competed with us over the years and completed 12 events, we offer a master adventure athlete, professionally embroidered duffle bag. Photos of our previous winners are under the archive section in the dropdown menu.
Anita G Receives Series Master Adventure Athlete Award
Over the course of the adventure series we meet great athletes who seek to push their limits and to explore all facets of outdoor adventure racing and orienteering. Master Adventure Athletes have competed in over 12 events, powering through different levels of terrain, elevation, rain, heat, extreme cold, beastly vegetation and numerous non-stop hours of competition. They demonstrate outstanding leadership, team work, passion and advocacy for the sport. Less than 1% of over 1,000 series adventure race participants receive the master award. For these special, endurance athletes, we establish the Master Athlete Adventure Award of a personalized, embroidered, adventure racing duffle. We are please to announce Anita Gonzalez as the recipient of the Master Adventure Athlete award. Anita began the series in November, 2013, and powered to victory as a solo, COED, and family team. She is a tremendous advocate for the sport and for a healthy, active lifestyle. She currently serves as the President, Leavenworth Bicycle Club. Congratulations, Anita, welcome to an elite group!
