Squaw Valley Hosts World’s Youngest Adventure Racers, June 23-25

The rumors are true! The coolest kids adventure race on the planet will take place June 23-25 at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, CA. This is the third year we’ll host the event at Squaw Valley, and, we couldn’t be more excited.

As busy parents, we know it’s hard to find opportunities that allow kids to just be kids, encouraging them to get outside, learn and grow. We feel the Kids Adventure Games, presented by Toyota, is the answer. The games provide kids, ages six to 14, with an excuse to remove themselves from technology and gain an understanding of the great outdoors while becoming environmental stewards, learning teamwork, building confidence and having plain, old-fashioned fun. During the competition, teams of two navigate an adventure course, which includes biking, trekking, rope swings, mud pits, cargo nets, a giant Slip ‘N Slide, zip lines and other exciting obstacles. While they’re getting muddy, wet and smiling, racers will strengthen physical and emotional bonds through a series of challenges centered on building grit and resilience.

Registration is underway at Early registration is encouraged as the race sold out last summer. Cost is $150 per team of two until May 15 and then $180 after May 15. Skills clinics are also available the day prior to racing and offer competitors a chance to practice skills such as climbing, mountain biking and teamwork. Skills clinics cost $60 per participant.

Over the past 7 years the Kids A.G. has introduced nearly 15,000 kids to the sport of adventure racing. According to Kids A.G. Co-Founder Hélène Mattison, the Kids A.G. allows kids to just be kids, encouraging them to get outside, learn and grow.

"What started out as a birthday party for our kids in our backyard has turned into, what we feel is, the coolest and greatest kids adventure race in the nation,” said Mattison. “We can’t wait to watch the Squaw Valley racers challenge themselves while having an unforgettable experience. Parents are always astounded at what their kids can accomplish.”
