The 2nd annual Fine Earth Adventure Race Benefiting K9s For Warriors - Presented by Premier Auto Body will be held Saturday, June 24, 2017 at the Harrisonburg Police Department Training Grounds in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Last year's race drew in 864 racers with over 1,800 in attendance for the event.  We anticipate the year's turnout to be even bigger.  A local veteran received a service dog from K9s For Warriors this April, and a K9s For Warriors Graduate and her service dog are now living in the Valley.

The majority of the proceeds this year will benefit K9s For Warriors.  K9s For Warriors rescues dogs from kill shelters and trains them to be service dogs for Veterans with PTSD.  War Paints Inc. will also be receiving some of the proceeds.  War Paints, a local organization in the Shenandoah Valley, promotes and encourages the artistic endeavors of our nations warriors and service members through art, photography, woodworking, and other such talents.  On the Road Collaborative, also located in the Shenandoah Valley, is a youth empowerment non-profit organization that sets middle school youth on the road to college and career.  They will also be receiving a small portion of the proceeds.


This years race will include the same 3 levels as last year, a SWAT level, the Specialist Trevor Banks Intermediate Course, and the Walk for Warriors. Teams of a minimum of four people (maximum-unlimited for Intermediate and Walk for Warriors) will compete for time. The individual that raises the most money will win a Grand Prize (Grand Prize TBA).  You will have an amazing day taking on the adventure courses, enjoying good food and music all while supporting our Veterans.   Graduates from K9s For Warriors will be in attendance as well as Veterans from the local and surrounding areas.

There are Courses for Every Fitness Level:        

SWAT Team Course– Think you are good enough to compete with SWAT teams?  Sign your team up for this expert level.   You will get to take on the exact course that SWAT teams from around the state compete on.  This level is for serious athletes only.  This course will take every ounce of your strength, teamwork, desire, commitment, speed, and fitness.    Minimum and Maximum team size is 4 people.    Early Bird registration is $85 per person for the SWAT Level.  After you sign up, you will have the option to set up your own fundraising page to encourage family and friends to donate to your efforts.

Specialist Trevor Banks Intermediate Team Course – This years course will include some new obstacles.  It will be a fun, challenging 3 mile run/walk through an adventure course filled with stream crossings, obstacles and challenges to complete as a team.  This course is set up so that 80% of our participants can complete it -  If you want an extreme challenge, run the entire course (including the hills) and take on the obstacles as fast as you can.   If you want to just have fun, walk the course, take your time on the obstacles and if you don't feel comfortable, you can even opt out of any obstacle.  You must complete every obstacle to win a prize.  Some of the obstacles you will have to take on are the Warrior Mud Run, Cardiac Hill, No One Left Behind Carry, Death by Burpees, River Runs Through It, Team Log Challenge, Hay Bale Climb, Tires or Tired and a few surprises.  Teams must finish together for their times to count for prizes.

Know Your Why

22 Veterans a day commit suicide.  That is over 8,000 suicides a year and over 125,000 Veteran suicides in the last 15 years.  It truly has become an epidemic.  Our warriors need our help and our best effort.  The good news, is we have found an organization that is helping our Veterans and truly getting amazing results.  K9s for Warriors rescues dogs from kill shelters and trains them to be service dogs for Veterans with PTSD.   Not only are the Veterans getting help with their PTSD, but they are getting their lives and families back.
