You can help save the planet, says Selena Blais of the The Environment Network in Collingwood. “Join us for our first ever beginner friendly adventure race on July 31, 2010”.
The “Race for the Planet” is an adventure race to encourage use of the Trails Network in Collingwood. Teams consisting of four adults (ages 18 and up) will work together to travel through the course on foot, by bike, paddle power and public transport, conquering several fun mental and physical challenges along the way.
Teams will plan their own course of travel between checkpoints; there is no set route to travel. Using the supplied maps and course instructions, teams will move through the course encountering various checkpoints to get their “passport” punched, find a clue or possibly complete a challenge.
Blais adds, “It’s all in fun to raise awareness for alternatives to the car...plus it promotes active transportation and healthy living in this fabulous part of Southern Georgian Bay”.
The Race for the Planet adventure race takes place on Saturday July 31st, 2010. Registration begins at 9am and the race starts 10am. Participants will need to bring:
There will be a maximum 60 teams who will pay $50 per person or $200 per team plus HST and they’ll be competing for great prizes.
Proceeds from the Race for the Planet will go to the Environment Network to help them continue their job of working to ensure a healthy and sustainable environment. More information is available about the Environment Network and their programs at their web site.
