Gopher Adventure Race (Video)

The Recreation, Park, and Leisure Studies program at the University of Minnesota will be hosting the annual Gopher Adventure Race on Friday, October 7, 2011!

The Gopher Adventure Race is a mental and physical challenge to the participants who race in teams, traveling by foot and campus transportation to decipher clues that lead them to discover many "gems" that exist at this great University. Teams of two can be made up of females, males, or co-ed (student category), alumni who have graduated less than ten years ago and alumni who have graduated ten years ago and over (alumni category), or faculty & staff.

The Gopher Adventure Race (GAR) is an environmentally responsible event and incorporates "green" practices in line with the FitPlanet criteria for their "Pledge of Sustainability". A portion of each registration fee is donated to our community partner, the Three Rivers Park District, for Forests Forever, a reforestation project that provides critical habitat for wildlife threatened by urban sprawl and ensures the beauty of our parks for future generations.

If you are a U of M student, alumni, or faculty & staff member, register today for this exciting adventure!
