The P&Y Adventure Race, Presented by Train to Hunt, is a competition where participants blend physical fitness together with bowhunting skills. The race follows the Train To Hunt model designed to give bowhunters a reason to train and to give them a testing ground for their training program. This race is unlike any event you have ever participated in, and is sure to help you prepare for your ultimate goal… bowhunting season.
