Adventure Racing coming to Palm Coast this weekend – October 16th

A recent visit to Kevin Mims' Blog  announces that the Princess Place Preserve will be site of the Pangea Adventure Race event on Saturday, October 16.  Mims is a former IT guy who decided that he’d rather be on the road than at a desk. 

He is a freelance writer for Visit Florida, the state’s official tourism marketing corporation.  Mims’ specialty is Outdoors and Nature.   He spends his time exploring Florida and keeping the rest of us in the loop by blogging and posting to Twitter and Facebook among other places.  He also shoots video that is part of the Visit Florida Outdoors and Nature.

According to a recent post on his blog, Pangea Adventure Racing will be putting on the LighterKnot AR at Flagler County's Princess Place Preserve this Saturday (10/16/10).  Those of us that are lucky enough to live here know all about this 1,500-acre tract of land that was once home to a Russian princess.    For the rest of our readers that may be unfamiliar with this amazing spectacle of Nature, suffice to say that aside from the history there, you will find this to be one of the most beautiful places to hike, camp and paddle.  This week’s LighterKnot Adventure Race brings those activities together with two separate racing categories - a 4-hour sprint or a 8-hour elite event. 

A visit to Mims' blog will enlighten you about why he is so excited about this race at Princess Place.  He will also be on hand this weekend to film video of the event.  This will be great exposure for our area so be sure to check it out if you can and either get involved or support the teams!

Watch for a link to the video in a future post.  In the meantime, visit Pangea Adventure 2010 Race Calendar to view and register for other upcoming events.
So what exactly is Pangea Adventure Racing??
Adventure Racing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, engaging all of your senses.  It will push you, both mentally and physically, to reach new heights.  According to the Pangea Adventure Racing site this sport,
"commands full engagement of all your senses. It pushes your mental and physical abilities, and it fulfills a deep yearning for total immersion in the raw elements of the wild. Join the casual gym-goers, outdoor adventurers, elite athletes, and triathletes who are making the cross-over to adventure racing. Be warned: this sport is highly addictive!  Check out our 2010 Race Calendar for all upcoming Florida races. Register early and save!"
This is about team-building rather than being super fast.  So don't be afraid to join in the fun by getting a team together and help show off our very own Princess Place Preserve!
