The GNAR is an adventure race tailor made for kids (aged 5+) and parents. Teams of two can consist of parent/youth, or youth pairs. The event is held on the beautiful property of Camp Pinnacle where racers will be challenged with a multitude of (kid friendly) activities including trail runs, mountain biking, wall climbing, canoeing, and a bunch of mystery obstacles that promise to deliver an exciting race for all who participate.

This year the GNAR will be held on Sun, May 3 in the afternoon (see link for more details and for registration).

The goal of the race is to provide kids with an introduction to adventure racing, so be assured the course is challenging but achievable by even the youngest racers. This is a really fun day for the whole family whether you participate or encourage your kids from the sidelines.

Post race you can take the kids to Hubba Hubba BBQ in Flat Rock for the best pulled pork in the area.
