Flying Squirrel Adventures

Don't forget your compass.



2016:  Year of Adventure

Flying Squirrel Adventures has passed the torch to 361 Adventures and they're off and running with a terrific line-up of races in the Unbridled AR Series in Kentucky State Parks.  Check back here for further announcements about the Sheltowee Extreme, as well.  Like you, we hope to be racing the SXT in 2016!

Why are we maintaining this website if we aren't directing any more adventure races? Flying Squirrel Adventures is transitioning into a regional AR club with a mission of promoting outdoor adventure in and around Kentucky. 

Adventure Expo at General Butler SRP

2016 will kick off with an Adventure Expo at General Butler State Resort Park the weekend of February 26 - 28, 2016.  Race promoters from across the region will be involved in presenting on topics that include night navigation, ropes skills and safety, pace-counting, wilderness first aid for racers, and more.  We'll have a gear swap, AR videos, exhibitor booths, crossroads orienteering exercise, and plenty of opportunities to meet and mingle with other racers.  You may find your next teammate here!

There's no fee, thanks to Kentucky State Park's continuing support as a presenting sponsor and to the contributions of time and talent by participating regional race promoters.  We are hiring professional and certified trainers to conduct the ropes safety and wilderness first aid courses, and we'll take donations to cover that cost. We've gotten an incredible rate of just $64.95 for rooms at the General Butler State Resort Park lodge.  Use booking code 1427 to ensure access to our room block.  All activities will take place in and around the Conference Center.

Many thanks to 361 Adventures, DINO, Rev3 Adventure, Orienteering Louisville, Orienteering Cincinnati, TOPO Adventure Sports, and RedMed Adventure Medical for their contributions to this Expo and to outdoor adventure everywhere!


Please RSVP by e-mail to let us know how many will be attending, so we can ensure adequate supplies of maps, medical supplies, and other items.
