Come join us for the second annual Search for Bigfoot Adventure Race in Uwharrie National Forest.
This is part of the NC Outdoor Festival. This race will be duos only this year and will be very similar to The Amazing Race on CBS (well sort of). Teams will ride their mountain bikes, cyclocross bike or anything with wheels and pedals (sorry, no e-bikes).
There will be multiple check points you have to find and then complete a task before you can move on. The whole race will be 25 miles or less and will have a cutoff time. Sound like fun? We certainly hope so.
PRIZES: Prizes for winners and swag bags for everyone who participates courtesy of the NC Outdoor Festival.
FESTIVITIES: After the race we invite you to visit the NC Outdoor Festival in Troy, NC. There will music, food, vendors and lots of fun things to do.
CLASSES: 10 am Start
THINGS TO BRING
Water and snacks
