Wolfpack Adventure Race Team Upcoming Schedule

posted Feb 29, 2016, 10:38 AM by Jennifer Lister   [ updated Mar 29, 2016, 11:00 AM ]

See below for the upcoming WolfPack Adventure Race Team schedule and team t-shirt information.  We have planned a few kid-friendly 5K run/walk events and two obstacle courses.  The early obstacle race is smaller and can serve as an introduction to those new to obstacle course racing.  We race as a team and help each other through the obstacles.  The second obstacle race is longer and is later in the summer to allow for more training time.

Please see the information below and contact Jennifer Bushek (jlmb7@hotmail.com) or Laura Keener (laurakeener@me.com) for any questions.  Please let us know if you sign up so we can meet up as a group!  Stay tuned as we will be gearing up for free workouts/training sessions for anyone interested in improving or kickstarting your fitness program (you don't need to sign up for any races to participate). Please join us!
