The 11th annual Run, Row, Rock and Roll Adventure Race, held Saturday, June 13, was a successful event. This year’s race was again a national qualifier for the United States Adventure Race Association national championship to be held this year in Kentucky.
“This year’s race had a few last-minute changes because of wet weather, but participants had a great time on the course and enjoyed the challenge of the race,” said Craig Bontrager, director of the Bob and Wauneta Burkley Wellness Center.
A total of 57 participated in the race, which included running, canoeing, and mountain biking, along with orienteering and various challenges throughout the course. This year’s race began at the Bob and Wauneta Burkley Wellness Center in Fairbury. Participants were bussed to the Washington, Kan., State Lakes, and then the course brought them through public and private property back to the Bob and Wauneta Burkley Wellness Center.
