Kids Adventure Race in Vail, Colorado, PART TWO

This is part 2 of a 3 part blog series.  See part 1 here and part 3 here
Because I haven't been blogging regularly, my goal is to click out a lot of posts in the next couple weeks to catch up on our little activities.  

Yesterday I shared some Vail, Colorado, vacation moments. This summer, we spent the weekend here with our neighbors to experience a special race.  The Kids Adventure race is an event for the littles filled with all the best outdoor sports: mountain biking, rock climbing, rappelling, tubing, mud walking,  running, and more!

The racers must compete in teams of two.  The first day Titus raced with his teammate and friend, Molly.  Cameron and Dakotah raced as a team the following day.

Titus and Molly's team was called M & Ms, since both of their last names start with the letter M.

The race is designed with an adventure map for the teams to read, figure out, and follow.  After completing each obstacle, they get it checked off their map and are able to move on to the next obstacle.  This is a genius idea, packing lots of adventure into our kids' day!

Ready, Set, Go!

Rushing along to each obstacle..

Sticking together as a team...

Molly was an incredible climber!

 This giant slip n slide down the mountain was my favorite part!

It's a MUDDDDDY race!

Molly and Titus finished strong!  They had such an exciting time mazing around their map and enjoying outdoor adventure!

After the race, Horizon Organic Mac and Cheese with chocolate milk was served...
a well-deserved meal for our little racers.

We gave Molly and Titus a bag of Mega M & Ms 
to stay in theme with their team name. 
 Way to go TEAM M & Ms!

This is such a special way to celebrate the beautiful outdoors. 
It encourages kids to always seek adventure 
and it shows them just how awesome their bodies are!

I love that you were able to capture a glimpse of the fiercely competitive spirit in Titus' face. He's so chill and easy going that it's easy to forget just how competitive he is. My favorite event to watch was the rope obstacle (10th and 11th pictures down). They FLEW through that section.
