I am new to the Beacon Citizen group. I recognize some faces and names.
I was asked to create an adventure race in Beacon. A community event to coincide with Spirit of Beacon Day. I would like some feedback as to whether or not the community would support it and if the community would see value in it. Here are my ideas thus far:
It would have 3 courses:
The courses would include the Waterfront, Main street, Mt Beacon and USC. It would take place early before the parade.
A Kids course- 100 yard dash, 1 mile bike circuit and obstacle course
A family and friends course - short run(1 mile to 3 miles) and bike (5 to 7 miles) plus a fun kayak leg(probably 2 miles - from beacon harbor to bridge and back).
A competitive course - a full fledged AR course with the tie in of Mt Beacon for trail scramble, mountain bike and navigation.(this one is much tougher to design and pull off)
I welcome any and all thoughts.
