Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

North Idaho College is sponsoring its sixth annual adventure race, the NIChallenge, Saturday, June 26 in North Idaho.

North Idaho College’s Outdoor Pursuits will sponsor the sixth annual NIChallenge, an adventure race, Saturday, June 26 in the North Idaho wilderness (at a yet-to-be-announced location).

The NIChallenge is a sprint adventure race that incorporates paddling, trail running, mountain biking, special challenges and navigation trials. The race typically takes four to six hours to complete and teams will choose between a short and long course depending on experience and fitness levels.

Specific details of the NIChallenge course will not be released until just before the race to ensure that participants retain their sense of adventure, according to Outdoor Pursuits Coordinator Jon Totten. Past races have been held at locations such as Farragut State Park and Beauty Bay on Lake Coeur d’Alene.

Teams of two or four members in co-ed, all-male or all-female divisions must register by June 21. Cost is $80 per person.

“While the NIChallenge is primarily a team race, a solo division has been added this year for those who want to participate, but are unable to convince their friends to race with them,” Totten said.
