This summer Rare Earth Adventures, in conjunction with Base Camp Brewing Company and Outdoor Project, will be hosting a new feature as part of the 2016 Summer Solstice Block Party.

Join us for a 7-part Adventure Race through Portland and crossing the finish line at the block party. You’ll paddle, run, bike, and climb your way to the finish.

The Details:
Teams of 4 people

You must provide your own bike, everything else (kayak and climbing gear) will be included. If you have your own equipment for a stage, feel free to use it.

The Race:
Each team of 4 will be split into 2 groups for the first portion of the race.
