HTA Bay Area Wrap-Up

We brought our urban adventure race to the Bay Area for a third straight year and our racers were not disappointed. Our racers cruised through downtown Berkeley and Oakland picking up red delicious apples, answering trivia questions about the Bay Area and laughing and having fun all the way.

Shout Outs:
High Trek Adventure Bay Area could not have been pulled off without the fantastic human being that is Corey Montie, co-founder of Urban Diversion. If you're looking for fun social gathering then Urban Diversion is a must! UD offers hiking, sailing, happy hours and even has international trips! You won't be disappointed.

We want to thank Corey Montie, Ken Looney's of Looney's BBQ, Sarah Hammill and Terry Furry of the East Bay Express and Deborah Badhia of the Downtown Berkeley Association.

Thanks to all of our sponsors: BAARBD, Downtown Berkeley Association, East Bay Express, Fleet Feet Berkeley, Global-Fitness, Graceful Edge, Jitters and Shakes, Looney's Smokehouse, Max Muscle, Moby Dicks, Sports Basement, Timbuk2 and Urban Diversion.
