Local men, Todd Henrickson and Geoff Paine, are the winners of the first Hamlin Blast Adventure Race. This honor did not come to them from lack of competition! 36 teams, made up of 77 racers entered the three-part event.

Adventure Races consist of bicycling, orienteering, and canoeing. This new venue includes portions of Hamiln and Victory Townships in Mason County. Paul Havens of Jenison chose to come north rather than participate in a Kalamazoo triathalon. His teammate voiced their excitement at the choice: "It was a blast," he said.

Event organizers Andy Klevorn and Dave Maclean were pleased with the turnout. "Congrats to all the racers who finished their first race, it's quite an accomplishment to put it all together," they wrote in the race wrap-up. They are hoping to attract 200 racers next year. Maclean and Klevorn have teamed up and participated in six previous Adventure Races.
