Race Notes: This event is ONLY for those willing to accept full responsibility for whatever may happen to them. It is EXTREMELY dangerous. We don't recommend anyone participate in this event. Dippikill Wilderness Retreat. This event was created by the ARE in 2006 exclusively for the crazy ARE-ers staying at Dippikill for the weekend. It was a chance for them to earn bragging rights for not being afraid to submerge themselves in water under ice, climb trees, and not even know how far they are going. This is NOT a safe event. It is not an event with a "few" obstacles separated by open fields and easy access to help you in an emergency.
