One of the summer’s most anticipated family events, the Kids Adventure Games (Kids AG), is heading to Fruita, CO June 4-6th. Considered to be the nation’s premier adventure race for kids ages six to 14, the race will feature teams of two athletes tackling a course with mountain biking, trekking, rope swings, mud pits, cargo nets, zip lines, water obstacles, a giant Slip ‘N Slide and more. A family event not to be missed, the Kids AG will offer hundreds of kids the thrill of adventure racing where they’ll challenge themselves physically, emotionally and end the race feeling a huge sense of accomplishment.
About the Kids Adventure Games:
Whereas most races allow parents to help and coach their kids, Kids AG mandates the course as a parent-free zone, keeping them on the sidelines as cheerleaders. According to KIds AG Co-Founder, international adventure racer and Race Director Billy Mattison, parents remain astounded at what their kids can accomplish. 'Adventure racing is a thrilling sport,' said Mattison. 'It combines physical and mental challenges, teamwork and good-natured competition - and just as importantly, it's a lot of fun. We're excited for our inaugural Desert Edition race where we’ll watch the kids grow by challenging themselves throughout the weekend.'
The Kids Adventure Games™ originated in Vail, Colo. seven years ago and now features eight races across the nation. The games in each city are tailored to the natural terrain of the area to maintain the authenticity and personality distinct to that location. It is the only race of its kind in the nation. It offers kids the thrill of adventure racing while enhancing teamwork skills, sportsmanship, and a healthy, active lifestyle.
