President Kaler and Karen Kaler will race in 2012 GAR; early-bird registration now open
Early-bird registration for the third annual Gopher Adventure Race (GAR) is currently in full swing, with a discounted race fee until May 19. After May 19, entrants will be charged the regular rate. Space is limited, and since President Eric Kaler and his wife Karen Kaler are racing this year, Dr. Connie Magnuson, coordinator of the Recreation, Park, and Leisure Studies B.S. program, anticipates the race will sell out quickly.
This year the overall team winners of the 2012 GAR will not only have their names engraved on the canoe-paddle trophy, which is displayed in the Cooke Hall lobby, but they will also win a four-day kayak trip to the Apostle Islands, courtesy of race partner Wilderness Inquiry. Other top-place prizes will be provided by The North Face, Nice Ride, and Midwest Mountaineering.
