Mesa Adventure Challenge Returns Oct. 28

You might have heard them called "adventure races", "scavenger dashes", "goose chases", or some other name, but the idea is to gather 2 to 6 people and set out on a fun adventure that is filled with clues that you have to solve - and some crazy physical challenges, too. Don't worry, the challenges aren't scary or hard - it's all about having a good time!

The next big adventure challenge is Saturday, October 28, 2017.  Registration is open!

This year’s event will be held on from 12:00 – 2:30 p.m. The race will begin and end at Desert Eagle Brewing Company in downtown Mesa and will take participants anywhere between 1.5 to 2.5 hours to complete. Wrapping up the challenge at the brewery invites participants to linger longer in downtown Mesa to meet locals at the local watering hole.
