Test your skills and endurance during this unique adventure race through the forested paths of Hartman Reserve that combines trail running and archery. As you run the course you will have to stop and take aim with our archery equipment and try and hit the bulls-eye! For each arrow that misses the target you will need to take a penalty lap on a short side course before completing the normal course. Three laps on the normal course will make the race. The course will be about 2.25 miles total with the penalty lap course being about 400' long.
Archery Runs are a popular sport in Europe and are gaining interest here in the states. If you need a little practice, or have never shot a bow before, check out our "Intro to Archery" program in the morning.
For ages 16 and up.
Cost: Pre-paid-$15/person, Walk-in-$20/person.
