The Physically Strong Challenge is an 8 hour Adventure Race that derives its name from the Boy Scout Oath in which members pledge to be “Physically Strong”. This fundraiser will benefit local Scouting and help keep our program STRONG for many years to come.
The sport of adventure racing is sweeping the nation at a phenomenal rate. The PHYSICAL challenges presented to adventure racers have caused the sport to grow by leaps and bounds daily in popularity. Adventure racing is one of the few sports where just completing the race is considered a victory. Another driving factor is the emphasis placed on teamwork rather than individual achievement.
