The Atlanta Adventure Challenge (AAC) will take place on Saturday, APRIL 4TH, 2020 at the beautiful Fort Yargo State Park. An "Adventure Challenge" is perfect for the weekend warrior, new endurance athlete, corporate and family teams. Choose from a 4 or 8 Hour course in which the goal is to find as many CPs (Control Points) or flags with punches during the time allowed for each race. Teams will use a map, compass, and GPS device to locate CPs place around the park in which you will use a canoe, bike or trek to retrieve them. It's like an adventure scavenger hunt while teams explore the hills, rivers, lakes, trails and beautiful woods in Fort Yargo State Park, Georgia.
