Park Pursuit: Heroes Play Here

Park Pursuit: Heroes Play Here

The 14th Annual Park Pursuit, sponsored by IPRA's Recreation (REC) Section, is modeled after the Emmy Award-winning reality television series 'The Amazing Race'. The event provides park district professionals with the opportunity to engage in a half-day race where team building, healthy competition, and recreation take center stage. The objective is for teams to complete a series of mental and physical challenges in a race to finish the course ahead of the competition. Recreational and Competitive divisions are available, so there is something for everyone. Teams must consist of 4 members and need not be from the same agency. Come enjoy a day full of fun, team building, and networking with your colleagues. Registration is per team and includes a lunch, t-shirt, and course map/materials for each team member. Team captains will be notified via email of the check-in/starting point of the event, and all participants will be required to complete a participation waiver on-site before the start of the race.

Who Should Attend: Park and recreation, conservation, and forest preserve district professionals
