SPRING ARK FEST
JUNE 9, 2024
Summer is getting closer and before the woods get thick and it heats up, time for one final pre-summer Adventure! The Spring ARK Fest is a run through Southern Ontario's woods as they are springing to life with the warmer upcoming summer weather.
200 Arboretum Rd, Guelph, ON N1G 2W1
Specific meet location will be emailed to all registered participants AFTER registration closes (end of day June 7).
Participants have up to one hour to get as many checkpoints in the scramble as possible.
Categories: U18, U14, U12, U10 and U8.
Participants in ARK Fest are required to take part with an adult unless they have extensive solo navigation experience. It is strongly suggested that all participants take part with an adult as well, particularly those with little to no navigation experience. Parents do not need to separately register for the race.
