Oyster Off Road Adventure Race

Oyster Off Road Adventure Race
6/25/2011 12:00 AM
The Oyster Off Road Adventure Race is on Saturday, June 25, in the Old Mill District. Get ready to compete in or watch this trail run and mountain bike adventure race. The Oyster Off Road includes adventure surprises thrown in along a course that is kept secret until the start. That’s right, even the participants don’t know the mystery course route!

Racers are required to bring a cell phone and/or digital camera to capture images of their adventures during the race. The Oyster Off Road challenges teams of two or relays of four with creative tasks that require thought-provoking strategy. Teams will run, bike, paddle, climb and perform other crazy athletic stunts while answering trivia, completing brain teasers and performing stunts along the course route. Teams are given a passport moments before the race begins indicating check point destinations. Reach the check point, complete the task and return to the transition area for the next set of instructions.

At the conclusion, every racer will partake in the Deschutes $50K Challenge. In the true Oyster Race spirit racers will not know what the big money challenge is prior to race day and while the challenge isn’t going to be a walk in the park it also doesn’t require any special skills. When given the chance to win $50,000 we’re expecting a large viewing area, big crowds and a task that’s as funny to watch as it is to complete.

The Oyster Off Road Adventure Race’s transition area will be the Deschutes Brewery grass area on Shelvin-Hixon Road in the Old Mill District. It will be a great place to see the action unfold. Wondering about the name? Well, the race started in Denver, where there is a delicacy called Rocky Mountain Oysters. Need we say more? Come join the fun!
