The Amazing Refuge Race - Fremont

August 17Amazing Refuge Race

Race begins at 2:15 p.m.  Race ends around 4:15 p.m.

Armed with GPS units, you and your team will "race" against other teams by attempting to complete required challenges on the refuge first. Teams will be given a set of coordinates where they must try to locate using a GPS unit.  Once at that location, teams must work together to complete a challenge.  When that task is completed, teams will receive the next set of coordinates.  Those who complete all challenges and arrive a the finish first wins!

Intrigued?  Call Carmen at 510/792-0222 ext. 476 for additional information and rules.  Don't have a GPS unit?  Borrow one from REI Outdoor School the day of the race and the refuge.  Take the 1-hour introductory course on how to use the unit prior to the race.

Registration is required!  You may register up to 5 people for your team.  A minimum of 2 people per team.  The refuge may place individuals on teams containing fewer than 5 people to ensure maximum participation.  Registration deadline is August 10.  Go to Newark Parks and Recreation web site to register.  Click on "Register" at the top.  Go to "Summer 2013" and then "Family Activities."  There is no cost to enter.
