Black Squirrel Adventure Race is this Weekend

Triathlon combines paddling, biking and running

The Black Squirrel Adventure Triathlon, the second race in the Crooked River Adventure Race series, is Saturday in Kent.

Registration remains open and is available the day of the race. See the attached registration form (a .pdf file) for more information.

The three-stage race features a 2 mile canoe or kayak leg on the Cuyahoga River, a 5 mile bike ride on The Portage Hike and Bike Trail and a 2 mile run that ends in downtown Kent.

Racers can enter as individuals, a team or a relay.

Kent Parks and Recreation Director John Idone said if racers need a canoe or kayak, they can call Ernie's Bike Shop & Canoe Livery at 330-832-5111 and they will deliver a boat to the starting line and pick it up for you at the Middlebury landing after the race.

Fore more information, see the attached registration form.

Matt, You have a photo from the 2011 Bowman Cup 5K Race with a caption describing the 2nd Annual Black Squirrel 5K Race (which was April 14, 2012, and will run again on April 13, 2013) in your story regarding the Black Squirrel Adventure Triathlon which is this weekend. I certainly like the publicity for my race Black Squirrel 5K Race; but it might be a little confusing to someone reading the story if they read the photograph caption as well. Thanks, Greg Bailley, Assistant Director Kent State University Department of Recreational Services

Thanks for pointing that out, Greg. It was a technical error on my part by selecting from two adjacent photos in our digital archives.
