Family Action Pack – the Weekend Challenge Begins in Columbus, Georgia
No matter the age, finding things to keep the family entertained on the weekends can be tough, and making kids put the electronics down is even harder. What do kids want these days in terms of weekend, family getaways? How about something they’ll remember for years to come? Challenge your family to an adventure packed weekend full of racing, rafting, zip lining, simulators and foodie fun.
Chattahoochee Challenge Adventure Race Weekend -- The family that adventures together, stays together. TriColumbusGa is hosting its third annual Chattahoochee Challenge Adventure Race November 19th. The race is open to all levels, requiring minimal orienteering or map reading skills, and it’s perfect for an adventurous family. The race consists of hiking, running, biking, whitewater rafting, zip lining, and more.
The race challenges families to work together, navigating their way through the course using plotting and mapping techniques, checking off points as they progress. This year, the race adds whitewater rafting and zip lining for extra points. To find more details about the race, and how it works CLICK HERE:
