About

If you have ever watched "The Amazing Race" on television, you will have a pretty good idea about how Venture Adventure works. Teams progress from station to station where they will need to successfully complete a task before proceeding to the next station. The challenges will be as varied as the sponsors that design them: you may be solving a puzzle at one station then moving on to test your balance or fitness at the next station.

Teams of four are encouraged to pick a catchy team name and dress correspondingly. Whether your team is in the "fit" or the "fun" division, you will have the chance to win some awesome prizes!

Once you have completed all the stations, grab your teammates and head over to the Marten Brewing Beer Gardens to enjoy some great music, food and refreshments. Click Here to Register Your Team

Venture Training’s Cycle-Cycle program in partnership with the RCMP provides a valuable community service. Participants with developmental disabilities in this therapeutic work program learn bike mechanics to refurbish bikes found by the RCMP or donated by the public. Every kid deserves a bicycle, and at Cycle-Cycle there is a huge selection of affordable bikes for all! Cycle-Cycle currently operates out of an old, cramped building that requires updating to improve work areas, bicycle storage and sales.

Leah Goldstein, an undefeated ultra-distance cyclist from Vernon, will tackle the world’s hardest race this June! Race Across America (RAAM) is a 3,000-mile, coast to coast, non-stop race from California to Maryland. Leah was a World Champion Kickboxer, Israeli Defense Force agent and a professional cyclist. She’s even won RAAM before! This time, as she races the toughest field in the history of the race, she’s determined to break a record!
