Looking for a quest like no other?  L.L. Bean is proud to host the Freeport Amazing Place Adventure Race to benefit the American Cancer Society.  It’s a team challenge for adventure seekers and explorers, that will also help to forward the life-saving mission of the American Cancer Society.

Let's define Adventure Race: Our version is for everyone, but plan on greatly exceeding your 10,000 step goal. We have more than 20 clues, challenges, and historical check points that you will seek on foot. No driving!  

Want to form a team?  Here's how....

1. Gather up a team of 2-4 people, pick a team captain, and a team name. 
2. Decide which time slot is best for your team to participate:  10am or 12pm.

  • The 10 am heat is a time competitive heat with 20+ stops, challenges and clues
  • The 12 pm heat is a non-timed heat with 10 to 15 stops, challenges and clues

3. Now your captain is ready to register your team
4. Once the team captain is registered have each member sign up to join the team
5. Do some fundrasing and get ready for some FUNraising at the event.  

Important Event Details:

  • There is a limit of 25 teams for each of our 2 "heats" - 10am and 12pm and are first come first serve.  Plan on dedicating 2-3 hours to completing your heat.
  • The 10am heat is a timed competitive heat. Expect to have a combination of 20+ clues, challenges and stops.
  • The 12 pm heat is a family friendly non-timed heat. There will be between 10 and 15 clues, challenges and stops.
  • If needed we will add additional heats.
  • You do not have to be a team of top athletes to compete, you just have to enjoy a challenge, and the spirit of team work. This event is filled with physical and mental challenges.   
  • There is a $25 per person registration fee to participate, which counts toward your fundrasing!
  • We ask that each team member attempts to raise $100, with prizes for top teams.  No, we don't collect your credit card, or anything like that, but we do provide tools and support to make raising that extra $75 a breeze.  

What kind of adventure are you signing up for?  Contestants will navigate their way through Freeport, Maine to discover clues and complete various challenges – including physical competitions, and tasks that will require your brain-power such as solving puzzles, discovering historical locations, and testing your ability to strategize as a team. Prizes will be awarded throughout the adventure, and all teams who complete the race will receive recognition.
