JUNIOR ADVENTURE RACE

Camp Tuscazoar will be offering a Junior Adventure Race for young folks ages 5 - 14.  This race will include a bike race on the new CTF East Side courses, an obstacle course which will have an emphasis on learning and adventure! Kids will have a boat race using a Rain gutter Regatta format, which allows the participants the opportunity to build a boat using recycled materials and then sail it on the rain gutter course.  This is not a timed event but a chance to be outdoors and enjoying nature while learning in the process.  All participants will receive a reward for completing the events.  

 

RACE STAGES

-Running Section  

The race will begin with the running section.  Racers must carry water with them at all times and wear appropriate footwear.

*Relay Teams:  You are responsible for shuttling your team members to and from the Running / Paddling transition area at Canal Lands Park.

-Paddle & Trekking Section   

Canoes, SUPs, and Kayaks are not provided, you will need to be bring your own. You must have paddles and PFDs.  They will be stage with your boat located at the transition area. You will not need to carry paddles or PFDs. You are responsible for   transporting your boat and gear to the staging area prior to the beginning of the race. Once you exit the river/paddling section you must leave your Canoe, SUP, or Kayak, and paddle equipment in the transition area.  All boats and gear (PFD and paddle) will be transported back to the race start for you.

Portage: You will need to portage your boat from the transition area to the river access as part of the race. Portage distance is roughly 250 to 400 yards based on the location of your boat at the staging area.  Drop off your boat early to get a good spot!

Trekking: At the river takeout you will begin a grueling Trek out of the Tuscarawas River Valley to the mountain bike transition area.

-Mountain Bike Section

Road and Cyclo Cross bikes are not permitted. Racers must use the same bike throughout the entire race. In the event of mechanical failures, replacement parts can be used but they must be provided by the team, other racers, or an event official. No outside assistance is allowed. Bikes will not be checked for mechanical worthiness, but we recommend your bike be in good working order. Tuscazoar offers some of the most challenging mountain bike trails in Ohio!

-Orienteering Section (Ultimate Race Only)   

For those who want to compete at the Ultimate level, the final leg will be an orienteering adventure. In keeping with the time frame of the event, this will be a micro-Rogaine, with 15 controls placed throughout the Camp. Competitors will have 60 minutes from their start time to return. Points are deducted at the rate of 10 points for every minute the competitor exceeds their 60 minutes. Controls are scored differently depending on the level of difficulty in reaching them; therefore, competitors must choose a strategy (for example, to visit many low-score checkpoints, or a few high-score checkpoints), with the clock ticking away. The competitor with the highest net point score is the winner.

-Distance

-JUNIOR ADVENTURE RACE

For our young explorers, our Junior Adventure Race is sure to be a hit! This three-step activity includes an age-appropriate twist on the biking, running, and paddling that is happening over the hill.  First, a bicycle ride on the new CTF East Side courses offers an easy introduction to mountain biking. An environmental obstacle course will follow next, challenging every participant to be an observer and student of nature. Finally, the Rain-Gutter Regatta will allow competitors the opportunity to build a boat using recycled materials and then sail it on the rain gutter course, seeing whose ship is seaworthy and can survive the test.  This is not a timed event but a chance to be outdoors and enjoying nature while learning in the process.  All participants will receive a reward for completing the events. This will be a great experience for both Cub and Girl Scouts, along with any children attending the Adventure Race with their families.  A $5.00 donation will include all activities and a light lunch!
