Squiggy adventure races

West Central Florida Adventure Racing is coordinating four races on April 10 that start and finish at Morris Bridge Park in the Lower Hillsborough County Wilderness Park near Thonotosassa. Racers will spend a few hours running trails, hiking through pine forests and cypress swamps, riding single-track bike trails and dirt roads, canoeing the Hillsborough River, navigating with a map and compass and enduring other special challenges:

Squiggy Classic: A six- to seven-hour challenge for soloists and teams of two or three. The course will be mostly unmarked, so participants will have to navigate with a map and compass.

Squiggy Dash: A two- to three-hour adventure — biking, running and paddling — on a marked course, but be prepared to use a map and compass for a challenge or two. A great race for beginners.

Squiggy Junior: A race that includes all of the challenges of the bigger races in a 25- to 35-minute kid-friendly format. Parents can even race with their kids.

Squiggy Quest: An off-road multisport race for those who want to push the limits of speed on a marked course. This race is for soloists only and includes river paddling (8.2 miles), trail running (10 miles) and mountain biking (17 miles).

Kayak forward stroke: 10 a.m. April 17. Two-time U.S. canoe/kayak team member Kip Koelsch instructs participants on the least-taught but most used stroke. He will explain forward stroke theory and analyze each participant's stroke, providing detailed critique and suggestions for improvement. It costs $75, and reservations are required. For details, call the Bill Jackson Shop for Adventure at (727) 576-4169.
