Welcome to the 3rd annual Amazing “Backcountry” Race!

This two-hour adventure is inclusive to PEOPLE OF ALL EXPERIENCE LEVELS and will take place on Sunday, February 28th at 3:00pm at Pomona College’s Outdoor Education Center (OEC).

The Amazing “Backcountry” Race consists of 2-3 person teams that have been tasked with the completion of several outdoor skills and tests. This backcountry version of the popular TV show “The Amazing Race,” will take teams throughout the Claremont Colleges and test their combined knowledge of the outdoors. While we don't want to give away too much, some previous stations have included making a fire, identifying the best Leave No Trace (LNT) tactics, tying knots, etc. There will be OEC staff members at each station to assist teams if needed.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME! If you have any questions, please contact Will Duke (keduke@students.pitzer.edu) REGISTER YOUR TEAM BELOW!!!
