Learn to adventure race or do your first 5k with All Out Events!
San Luis Obispo, California; Feb 14, 2011 - All Out Events is teaming up with local talent to help people get outdoors no matter what their skill level.
April 9 & 10, Santa Margarita lake will host some of the worlds greatest Adventure Racers (including SLO resident and racing legend, Ian Adamson) to offer athletes a chance to experience adventure racing in a learning environment. Racers of all abilities will come from all over to hone their skills for the upcoming race season. The two-day camp will offer classroom experience paired with outdoor practice, culminating in a mock-race with the instructors acting as mentors.
Adventure Racing is a multi-sport discipline involving trekking, kayaking, mountain biking, navigation, and many other special skills ranging from roller blading to rope work. Races can last anywhere from 2 hours to 10 days. Last year, All Out Events hosted a 24-hour race exploring the county's backcountry.
If adventure racing is too much, Dash Fitness Studio is offering group training to get 5k enthusiasts ready for the big day. The training is timed to culminate with All Out Event's San Luis Mountain Run on April 17th. The SLO Mountain Run, in it's seventh year, is introducing a 5k to its usual world 10k course.
