Announcing the 2022 Great Kaw Adventure Race!

Hello friends! We’re getting really excited for our event this year. For the first time ever we will be joining forces with the Eudora Conventions and Visitors Bureau and Eudorafest to bring you a bigger experience Saturday October 1st. Not only will the Adventure and Orienteering races return, but you will be able to relax in our beer garden, listen to music and maybe even pet a burro. We’re working through the details of a bunch of things this year, including splitting the Adventure Race into a kayak and canoe classes to give participants more flexibility in their equipment. Come back often for updates!

REgistration Closes SoOn!

Hey everyone! We’re under two weeks from the race and we’re very excited to have you here! If you haven’t registered yet, you better hurry up! We close registration FRIDAY at 11:59PM. If you don’t make it you can volunteer!

Covid-19 and the GKAR

Hey friends! We’re plugging along planning the event and wanted to update the community on the situation. Douglass County, KS has been running a pretty prolific vaccination crusade and keeping our numbers of cases low over the last several months. During the event we plan on following the USARA guidelines and any additional guidance public safety asks of us. Your safety is our first concern.

Lets be kawrageous

In minutes, 2021 will see the return of the GKAR with a new solo class for participants, the orienteering 5k and of course the team event for 25 lucky teams! Check out our new partnership with the Eudora Parks and Recreation Foundation and The Friends of the Kaw to support our Wakarusa Boat Ramp. More deals on that soon!


Hey everyone! We’re back! Despite a flood, pandemic, and an extended training session the Great Kaw Adventure Race is back for 2021! We’re planning on September 25th for the event. We’re excited to kick off an awesome month here in Eudora and we want you to be part of the event too!
