With this year’s theme as “The Day After Tomorrow,” the 2021 Gold Rush Competition will once again require the use of: SKILL + ENDURANCE + STRATEGY & LUCK to determine an overall winner.
January 29-31, 2021
The Gold Rush will include:
Trail-side stations requiring outdoor skills
Saturday breakfast and dinner
Saturday lunch for leaders
Free tent camping (cabins are extra)
Unique Gold Rush patch
Competitors will cook chili on the trail for their lunch on Saturday. Additional details will be available as the event gets closer and we have a better understanding of how to keep everyone safe for this event. Those familiar with previous events can expect the same type of competition.
Thanks to Spenser Long, program director, for planning the event this year.
Due to limited parking at camp, please plan to car pool if possible.
Cost is $25 per participant. Tent sites are free for the weekend. Cabin fees are additional.
To reserve a campsite or cabin: http://tuscazoar.org/reservations/. Note: campsite fees will be adjusted to $0 after the reservation is completed.
