The Great Kaw Adventure Race is an orienteering based, cognitive, and physical challenge event. Challenges could be trivia about Eudora's German and Indian heritage, complex equations, gunny sack races, or a simple puzzle. Participants will be required to navigate to waypoints and challenges to retrieve important artifacts. To acquire these artifacts, an action will have to be performed. Participants will be limited to right of way and public properties unless otherwise stated. If we catch you running through lawns (and our residents will) you will be penalized.
Each two person team will be issued a map with the waypoints marked. It is up to the team to decide what is the best way to complete the course. No cue sheets will be issued. No markings will be placed in town. The course will be open to traffic and citizens. Participants will be required to be within two seconds of each other regardless of transit. If you're running you should be able to touch, you will both be in the same boat, and if your cycling you should be able to draft. This is a team event so choose your exit buddy well. All finishers will receive an award for finishing (more to come soon!)
For 2017 the GKAR will have two classes.
The 30 miler will require participants to run, paddle 11.4 miles, and cycle gravel roads back to the finish line. Depending on strategy, participants could travel between 24 to 30 miles. This class will require a running, river travel, and cycling unless conditions prevent are unsafe. All finishers will receive an award, with top prizes going to first, second, and third place teams.
The 5 miler will require participants to run or walk through and around Eudora to find waypoints. Depending on strategy, participants could travel between 4 to 8 miles. All finishers will receive an award. This course will focus heavily on orienteering and exploring the community.
