Vail Recreation District Celebrates Completion of Two-Day Race, Four-Days of AdventureThe Vail Recreation District wrapped up the 4th annual KEEN Vail Kids Adventure Race, presented by KidSPORT, today (8-11) after nearly 460 kids, ages 6-14 completed during the two days of racing. During the competition kids competed in teams of two to work together to navigate an adventure course that included hiking, biking, a zip line, tubing, a mud pit, rope obstacles, repelling and more throughout Vail Village and on portions of Vail Mountain. Additionally, families enjoyed two days of the Family Adventure Expo in Solaris Plaza in Vail Village this past Thursday and Friday. Overall results are posted at www.vailkidsadventurerace.com with individual age and category results being announced tomorrow (8-12).  

 Next year's race is being planned for August 7-10, 2014 with registration opening in March 2014. "The past four days have been incredibly fun, especially the racing," said Beth Pappas, VRD Sports and Sponsorship Manager and race director of the kids adventure race. "We can't wait for next year's race and are already talking about how to make it bigger, better and more adventurous."
