This Sunday the Kosciusko Community YMCA will be offering its first ever Adventure Race, Mission to Mariner, in partnership with Metzger Outdoors.
The race will be a family friendly, community event to raise funds toward shaping the future of the community by building a new Y. Starting at the current YMCA facility (located on Smith St., Warsaw) the race will bring participants in two divisions to the new site on Mariner Drive.
The event will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25, and will include teams of up to five people as well as several fun challenges and lead participants on a roughly 3-mile course. The athlete division for individuals will include additional challenges and a much longer course. To keep the race challenging, the Y will not be releasing all of the details of the race. Children are hoped for and welcome but need to be able to walk 3 miles.
Matt Metzger, of Metzger Outdoors, has put on over 10 Adventure Races. Metzger stated, “Metzger Outdoors loves the YMCA. We are looking forward to putting on a fun, family-friendly event. You’ll sweat and smile on your adventure!”
