There’s an event coming up that we would love to have a BIG QCCF team for the I Am STRONG Women’s Adventure Race. From the event Facebook page:
Get a little muddy and have a little fun! Join the Junior League in its First Annual I AM STRONG Mudventure Race. This all women’s event was inspired by our I AM Initiative. I AM Strong is a fun running 5K road race with a combination of adventure and mud racing that includes elements of scavenger hunts and various obstacles such as tire flips, rope pulls and balance challenges. There are recreational and competitive divisions for all levels of ability with the goal being to support one another and accomplish a challenge together. 100% of race entry fees go to Quad City area non-profits.
There’s a costume prize as well and I THINK YES, don’t you?!!?
Also, why leave the boys out? The men will come and cheer on their strong women and for every woman we have do the race, the boys will do X3 burpees at the finish line!
Note: When you register, there will be a section to write in your team name. Please write in “Team QCCF” so we’re all put on the same team!
