About This Activity

Do you and 3 teammates have what it takes to tackle challenges while self-navigating the ODU campus? Yes! ODU Recreation & Wellness is hosting a new Adventure Race this spring. Get ready to paddle, climb, and test your brain and body in various team oriented physical and puzzle challenges all while helping to end hunger in Hampton Roads. Join us on March 27, 2015 as we Race the Sun!


How can you race the sun and win? Each team will be in control of establishing a strategy. Deciding what challenges, the order of the challenges and who competes at each challenge will all be significant in determining your teams’ finish. Maps outlining the course will be provided to each team before the start of the race. But don’t forget, this race is not only against other teams, the real competition is the Sun! In addition to beating the sun, you will be able to contribute to an onsite non –perishable food collection that will be donated to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. Every food item your team donates will earn your team race points! All gross race proceeds will also be donated to the Foodbank.


What is the reward? The team that earns the most points on their passport prior to the sunset will be awarded first place. Second and third place finishers will also be recognized. We will also be giving away various prizes donated by our sponsors during the awards ceremony. Not to mention, everyone wins in the fight against hunger in our community.


Want to race the sun just for fun? Register for our inclusive Fun Run. Teams of 4 to 8 can compete in a noncompetitive category. Families and children can experience the adventure while supporting the fight against hunger in our community.
