Are they at all like hockey parents?... do we have to worry? ;)
Will the race director get heckled? ("Awww, C'mon Ref! Are you blind???!!")

The parents are great to me; who knows what they're like on the course with their kids? ;)

The big story last year was that the Family category win - a very convincing one - went to Wilberto's family. Wilberto and his son raced on the adult course so the Family team consisted of his wife and his daughter, neither of whom are particularly active in navigation sports. The competing Family teams included parents who were Wilderness Traverse racers so it was an exciting underdog victory!

Very cool!

Uh oh... sounds like WT is going to continue this trend of up and coming fast young racers.... ;)

I remember the Warriors from FAR's High School Adventure Race back in 2008 (or so). They were rock stars then too!

2008? That's cool. Thinking about inviting Janel to IFFAC.
