2017 Python Adventure Race

October 14, 2017 – 8AM Mass Start for 12 and 6-hour versions.

The tale of the Peninsula Python has been told since the summer of 1944, when some residents reported finding strange tracks on their property. Others said they saw the creature, a huge snake estimated to be about 15 to 18 feet long, that was rumored to have escaped from a traveling circus.

Hoax or not, your wanderings will remind all of the winding shape of a serpent.

Picture yourself orienteering in the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park just as the leaves are changing in early fall. Call it a ROGAINE, an Adventure Race or an Extreme Navigation Challenge. It all adds up to a long score-style orienteering event in one of the most visited National Parks in America.

76 controls / checkpoints will be spread across 20 km2, cornmaze included! Point values vary, so strategy is important to achieve a high score.
