Sept 13, 2015: 9th annual Great Ames Adventure Race (GAAR)

GAAR kayak-canoe leg - rounding the south lake
The 9th annual Great Ames Adventure Race (GAAR) happened Sunday morning (9/13).  The race consists of three legs: 2.7 miles around the main lakes at Ada Hayden by kayak or canoe, 15 miles by bike (from the Park to around the Gilbert area and back), and a 5K run along the Park trails.  Last year there were 125 participants.  Based on the number of bikers (70) that passed my corner (volunteered as a corner marshal), I would venture to guess that the total number is less this year. 9/14/15 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

biking leg - along US-69
