Black Bear Attack adventure race
September 22, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The University of Maine will host the Black Bear Attack adventure race Saturday, Sept. 22 as part of Family and Friends Weekend.
Participants of the 3.5-mile obstacle course will start at the New Balance Student Recreation Center and run up the hill and into the university forest. In the woods, they will crawl through the mud, manage tire obstacles, climb over a wall, wade through a swamp, carry pumpkins and dodge “zombies.”
Waves of 60 people will be sent out every 10 minutes beginning at 10 a.m. Waves will be assigned on the day of the race on a first-come, first-served basis.
The field is limited to 350 runners, and registration is available online.
Rates before race day are $20 for UMaine students, $40 for others. If spots are still available on race day, registration will be available starting at 8:30 a.m. at the recreation center. Race day registration will be $25 for UMaine students, $50 for others.
More information about the race is available on the Student Wellness Resource Center website or by calling Lauri Sidelko at 581.1423.
