Children ages 6 to 14 can navigate an adventure course throughout Vail Village and on Vail Mountain that includes a mud pit, a low ropes course, a zipline, a giant slope-n-slide, tubing and more as part of the KEEN Vail Kids Adventure Games, taking place Aug. 8-10. Adults who don't want to be left out of the action are being sought to join as volunteers and help with the various obstacles, course marshaling, transition areas and the start and finish lines. Approximately 80 to 100 volunteers are needed each day, and they will receive an official event T-shirt from KEEN and lunch. Local school groups and nonprofits that wish to volunteer will receive a financial donation for having no less than 10 people work during the event. For information about volunteering, contact Lisa Reeder at 970-390-4481 or visit To find out more about the race, go to or call race director Beth Pappas at 970-479-2280, ext. 7009.
