Cure summer boredom for a day at Annunciation Heights’ Fiat Fest

Coronavirus has turned this normally-busy season of summer into “The Great 2020 Boredom Fest.” But if you’re looking to get out of the house and into nature for a day, Annunciation Heights has just the cure for that sweltering summer boredom.

On Aug. 8, the Heights will host the first-ever Fiat Fest and Adventure Race against the beautiful backdrop of their camp nestled in the Rocky Mountains. The day will feature an adventure-themed 5K race rife with different challenges and an outdoor fest complete with field games, BBQ, live music and more. Registration is $100 per person for the whole, and $65 per person for those not participating in the race.

The first 100 registrants will also receive a free Annunciation Heights swag bag which includes a water bottle, prayer card and sticker.

Proceeds from the day will benefit the Altum Institute Missionary Program at Annunciation Heights. The Altum Institute Missionary Program is at the heart of the mission of Annunciation Heights.  The missionaries serve as instructors for the JPII Outdoor Lab, as counselors and staff for our summer youth and family camps and as servant leaders for guests on camp.

The event will be held outdoors, both the race and the fest, where social distancing will be enforced and sanitizing procedures in place for all high touch surfaces to minimize the risk of exposure.  Racers will be spaced appropriately to allow for personal distance while running, and all festival activities will be hosted in accord with state and county guidelines.
