Take Back the Hill - Mother/Son Adventure Race
|Take Back the Hill is an action packed adventure race that begins and ends at Northview Church on May 11th. The race is for boys in grades 7th-12th and their moms. During this team adventure race you should be prepared to bike 5 miles and hike another 2 miles. As the race begins, each mother/son team will receive a map with checkpoints that each team must find along the course. At each checkpoint we will provide a new challenge or trivia question that focuses on gender differences. The highlight of our event will be after lunch – a pitch-in at North Beach - when each mom is given the opportunity to privately share with their son the importance of treating women with respect. We are so excited to partner with the moms of our students at Northview as they take back an important hill in our society – words and actions toward girls do matter. Please join us for a fun, wild, exciting, and action packed event that will start some great conversations between you and your son!|

Adventure racing is fun for people at all levels of fitness. The course will be challenging for those that want a challenge, but it will also be fun for those that just want to get out and spend time together.
You will be running or trekking approximately 2 miles and riding 5. Unless noted otherwise, you will stay together the entire race. You will not know when or where you’ll be running or riding until the morning of the race. At packet pick-up, we will give you pre-marked maps with detailed instructions showing you where you’ll need to go. You will receive a “passport” in your race packet. You will need to carry that passport with you the entire race. You will use it to record answers to questions, or to obtain signatures from volunteers at each of the activities or challenges (we call them checkpoints or CP’s) throughout the race. It is very important that you keep it, and your maps dry.
The object of the day will be to get as many of the CP’s in the shortest time permitted.
We are working diligently to ensure this is a fun, safe, and affordable adventure for you. There will be a few things that you will need to bring with you and have on you in order to participate. Please see the list below. The gear list is subject to change up to race day. We will communicate any changes so you have as much time to prepare as possible. Unless specifically noted below, every racer will be required to have or wear the following while competing in that section:
