The Amazing Refuge Race - Fremont

August 20Amazing Refuge Race

Race begins at 10:30 a.m.  Race ends around noon.

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!
