You might remember watching the Eco-Challenge on tv.  It was a multi-day expedition
race, where teams trekked, biked, rafted, paddled, climbed, rappelled, etc their way
across different countries while facing additional surprise challenge.  The  first team to
the finish with all of the "checkpoints" was the winner.  The original Eco-Challenge is no
longer, but Adventure Racing has become one of the fastest growing sports in the world
and is the same thing . . . though most races are finished in 8-12 hrs, many are multi-day
and involve distances of 600 miles or more.  

Most people don't have the time or gear to train for and race in a typical adventure race,
so we're offering the Eco-Challenge Kansas.  The Eco-challenge Kansas has many
similarities to orienteering, adventure racing, Survivor, the Amazing Race, etc--except the
courses are designed for "normal" people and focus on fun and team building.  

Teams can consist of all ranges of ages and abilities, with the exception of Eco-
Challenge III (see below for minimum and maximum weight requirements).

STANDARD PACKAGE OPTIONS:  Variations possible, and discounts
available for church groups, military units and youth organizations--please inquire.
