Get Ready for Adventure
Ready or not Beloit – We’re going to Amp You UP! And we invite you to be part of the adventure! The Beloit Amped Up Adventure Race has been postponed from May 11 to June 29, 2013 due to the recent flooding of the Rock River. From the check-in the night before the race, to the race course design, and the after-race social gathering, the Beloit area community will have the chance to create a unique experience for the race participant. This is a whole community effort, with individuals, clubs, businesses, and city officials lending their support and assistance on creating an exciting race experience.The 2-3 hour adventure race will include paddling, running, biking and an urban obstacle course component. The race is designed to incorporate the local natural assets in Beloit with the race culminating with the obstacle component of the race at The Rock Bar and Grill. There will be four main competitive categories in the adventure race that individuals and teams can compete in: Amateur Division, Team Division, Youth Division and Pro Division.
Races with a Cause
The Amped Up Adventure Race Series are races with a purpose. Each Amped Up Adventure Race will benefit an outdoor initiative in the host city. The Beloit race proceeds will support a city bike rental program and completion of a bike/pedestrian bridge that will connect Beloit and Janesville Bike Paths. The Bike Path project is an initiative of the Rock Trail Coalition with support from the communities & groups along the route. The Rock County Leadership Academy has taken the bridge building project on and the Amped Up Race is supporting their bridge building efforts.
