August 2, 2014 (All day)
Registration has started for the Kids Adventure Games 2014, the first race for kids ages 6-14 that features teams of two competing in mountain biking, hiking, ziplines, Tarzan swing, Slope-n-Slide giant, cargo nets, mud pits and more.
The race is scheduled for August 2, 2014 at Mammoth Mountain as part of an exciting new eight-race series, the Kids Adventure Games, taking place at locations across the country. The details of the event are as follows:
To adapt to different running abilities, younger or beginner runners will compete on a short course. Older runners will compete on a longer course with more difficult obstacles. The cost of the race is $ 120 per team of two until July 1st. After this date, the cost increases to $ 150 until registration ends on June 14 or until the race is complete.
Last year’s race at Vail sold out with a waiting list of 30 teams, so runners are encouraged to register early. Online registration is available at www.kidsadventuregames.con. The camps will provide runners with opportunities to learn and improve their skills on Friday August 1st.
Clinics include teamwork, race day preparation, rock climbing and mountain biking. Clinics were also fully booked at last year’s event, so early registration is encouraged. The cost of the clinics is $ 50 per child. Participants must register as a team. No incomplete registration will be accepted. All participants will receive a cool SWAG from the event sponsors.
The Kids Adventure Games were founded in 2009 by Hélène and Billy Mattison, with an event in Vail. After five successful summer events, NRG Marketing has partnered with Mattson’s to expand children’s adventure games nationwide.
According to KAG organizer Billy Mattison, an experienced adventure racer who has competed in and won major adventure races across the world, he created an event that would teach teamwork, independence, problem solving and fun. He says he’s excited to host the event nationwide and allow even more kids to challenge themselves and their friends while having a real adventure and an amazing time.
“Mammoth Mountain is a great location for the Kids Adventure Games and we’re proud to partner with them this summer. They share our passion to offer children the opportunity to learn, grow, flourish, be adventurous and, above all, have fun.
