The Michigan Adventure Race: Cannonsburg Edition is being held June 12 and will cover multiple miles of woods, roads, trails and water northeast of Grand Rapids.
The race, similar to CBS’s “The Amazing Race,” will begin and end at Cannonsburg Ski & Ride Center. Participants can be a part of one-to-four-person teams and can bike, hike and paddle to hidden checkpoints that are pre-marked on a map, collecting as many points as they can. Most checkpoints are in local and county parks or along gravel roads racers will bike on.
Registration will be available until Thursday. The cost is $109/person for the five-hour race and $129/person for the 10-hour race.
Participants will be able to skip checkpoints or entire activities and do what they like best, but the more they find the higher they rank.
A compass will be needed to find some of the checkpoints in the woods.
The charity partner for the event, the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of Michigan, serves as an educational and support resource for those diagnosed with myasthenia gravis and provides health care professionals with the education they need to care for those with this disease.
