Binder Park Adventure Challenge

Are you ready for a new challenge? Binder Park Adventure Challenge will test your endurance and mental toughness. Whether you’re a weekend warrior trying to squeeze in as much adventure as possible out of your short window of free time, or you just really enjoy pushing the limits of acceptable suffering, there’s something deeply gratifying about cramming multiple adventure sports into a single day. A morning run followed by some quick mountain biking laps, capped with paddling around Binder Lake feels like a perfect day for an outdoor connoisseur with too many hobbies to pick a favorite. Join JC Parks for an afternoon of enjoying our favorite activities at beautiful Binder Park.
