La Pine Loop family adventure race 2024

race overview

What better way to spend the afternoon with your family than adventuring by bike and foot in the woods!  This might be a short “kid distance” event, but it won’t be short on adventure.  It’ll just be tailored to giving your kids a great low pressure race experience.  Some of the checkpoints will be “geo-cache” style, where every youth racer will collect treasures/toys/treats as part of the course.  There will be several “opt out” points where teams with littler ones can shorten each leg to stay within the “emotional fun-zone” and avoid a full-fledged meltdown.  All-kid teams will be allowed for children over 12 with at least one teammate 14 or older.  (Parent signature etc required).


Our 2023  race was a huge hit, and we are thrilled to be offering this addition to our race calendar.
