Play in the Woods!
The Merrell Adventure Dash is all about getting outside and challenging yourself to work hard for your good time. Suitable for families as well as adults, participants will negotiate a series of natural and man-made obstacles along the 5K course, including balance components, climbs and nets, a river-run, and mud pit.
Remember to wear anything you don't mind getting dirty!
If you miss pre-registration, you can still register onsite from 1 - 4 pm at NOC! Look for the Event tent near the Founder's Bridge.
