Adventure Challenge for Kids is the ultimate celebration of outdoor athleticism. A multi-sport event that includes kayaking, cycling, and trail running, the Adventure Challenge for Kids will be a fun and exciting test of your endurance and technical skills while you travel along one of two scenic routes.
The Vancouver event will see participants paddle out to sea from Jericho Beach before taking to the trails of the UBC Pacific Spirit Park for the mountain bike and trail running segments of the race. For those in the Fraser Valley, Cultus Lake Provincial Park will set the stage. Participants will kayak the lake and road bike the paved park
roads before running amongst old-growth giants on the Seven Sisters Trail.
