Due to Covid-19, most organized outdoor activities have either been canceled or postponed to a later date. The GetOutdoorsKansas team encourages everyone to get outdoors when possible but to do so in a safe and responsible way by following the current guidelines by the State of Kansas, the various counties and the CDC.
Orienteering around Lexington Lake Park in DeSoto
Intro - (2k) You will march through grassland and follow trails. There are also two wooded off-trail segments that have colored tape to help guide your way.
Intermediate - (3.5k) Trails will get you within eyesight of six of the controls. However, overlanding some legs will cut your distance considerably. Look for other handrails, too.
Get the new year started off right and join us on New Year's Day for the Hangover Half Marathon and 5K at the Villages of Seville at 133rd and State Line Road in Leawood, Kansas! This casual, fun event features a well marked, scenic course along area streets and the Indian Creek Parkway Trail and plenty of post race food and beverages. Who knows, there might even be a little "hair of the dog that bit you" waiting for you at the finish line.
Rain, snow, cold — it doesn’t matter, we always start the year off by going for a ride at the River Trail then having refreshments at Johnny’s Tavern. The New Year’s Day Ride is appropriate for riders of all abilities. We begin the ride on the levee and ride to the River Trail where you may opt to ride as much or little of the 11-mile trail as you like before heading back to Johnny’s!
