POSTPONED – 10th Annual Physically Strong Adventure Race

POSTPONED – The Mississippi Valley Council takes the safety of our Scouts and volunteers as our chief priority. Due to concerns relating to the COVID-19 virus, the Trivia Night is being postponed. We will have this event later in the summer or fall. Details will follow as plans are develop. Further communication will be found on our Facebook page and in the Current.


The Physically Strong Challenge will feature 2 and 4 person teams with co-ed divisions available. Co-ed teams must have at least one female competing. The 12 hour course is a regional qualifying race and includes canoeing, mountain biking, climbing, orienteering, and special Scout Challenges! The 6 hour course offers most of the same activities on a shorter course. Cabin lodging is available at no extra cost or you may bring a tent or commute.

How You’re Supporting Local Scouting & Career Explorers
This event raises the funds necessary to provide a full Scouting program to 2,600 Scouts in our local communities. Throughout the Boy Scouts of America from Cub Scouting to Venturing, all programs use responsible outdoor activities to promote character development and values-based leadership training. Each year, at-risk and underprivileged young people in Scouting receive financial support at a cost to the Mississippi Valley Council.  The local council relies on donations, directly or through special events to ensure each Scout is able to fully participate in the program.

USARA Insurance
USARA requires an additional insurance for $8.00/Person unless you are a USARA Member. You may pre-pay fee below or you may pay at the door. If you choose to become a USARA member, we will have an additional form for you to fill out when you arrive.
