The weekend will feature a full day of workshops, including instruction by professional adventure racers and outdoor leaders. These sessions will build the confidence necessary to enjoy the race.
The Evolve Challenge is aimed at engaging students with an array of athletic skills, talents and abilities and will challenge students to harness their team working skills, individual and collective strength and their eco awareness. We will also include a focus on the global water crisis specifically.
Participants do not have to be accomplished adventure racers. A willingness to learn and some athletic ability is all you need to participate.
