2019 WILD Adventure Challenge

September 28 @ 12:00 pm - September 29 @ 12:00 pm

How WILD are you? Can you handle 24 hours of adventure challenges? Gather your friends and family for fun and adventure in your own backyard – discover new places, show off some skills and most importantly have a TON of fun! 

The WILD Adventure Challenge is a 24-hour adventure scavenger hunt where teams of 2-6 people (made up of your friends or family) put your outdoor skills to the test while exploring their city and the wild spaces around it.

The Adventure Challenge will kick off at 12:00pm on Saturday September 28th at the Spencer Environmental Center – where you will pick up your race materials, some swag and compete a few challenges. After the kick off event you and your team are free to go and complete as many challenges as you want.  For 2019 we have updated to an App that you can download on your device, where you will submit your completed challenges and see where your team ranks throughout the challenge. You will have until 12:00pm on Sunday to complete your challenges – we recommend getting some sleep in there but its totally up to you! 

This event is open and fun for everyone of all ages! So gather your friends, family, kiddos, neighbors, co-workers or anyone that is up for the challenge! Every person must register to participate.


$35 per adult

$20 for children 8-18 (must be accompanied by and adult)

Free for kiddos under 8 (also must be accompanied by an adult)

So Here is how this works:

1. Register. 

2. Round up your teammates. (they all must register too). Your teammates can be anybody! (not just women). Gather family, friends, co-workers or drinking buddies. Then create a team name.

3. Get the list. The list of challenges will be emailed to you 24 hours before the race – this way you can gather with your team and start deciding what challenges you may want to do & start to gather supplies.

4. Come to the check in party on the day of the race at the Spencer Environmental Center. Pick up your race materials, swag and complete a few of the challenges.

5. Feel free to contact us with any questions. We cant wait to see you on Adventure Day!
