    Test your physical and mental skills in Georgia Southern University’s 10th annual Iron Eagle Challenge (IEC) at the Recreation Activity Center (RAC) on Saturday, Oct. 18, beginning at 9 a.m.
    The IEC adventure race leads two-person race teams through obstacles on Georgia Southern’s campus, such as off-road and urban cycling, paddling and conquering many mystery challenges along the way.
    “The Iron Eagle will help participants to develop camaraderie in a challenging way,” said Phillip German, a graduate assistant at Southern Adventures. “It helps individuals problem solve, learn about themselves and have fun all at the same time.”
    German said to make sure you have a mountain bike, helmet, fun teammate, creative team name and (if you wish) a costume.
    Returning participants are reminded that the race is taking place on a Saturday this year, as opposed to the traditional Friday afternoon schedule.
    Participants are required to bring a water bottle, a bike suitable for on- and off-road cycling, and a helmet to the race. If participants are interested in renting a bicycle or helmet for the event, please stop by Southern Adventures and reserve one while supplies last.
    Each participant will receive a T-shirt and have a chance to win prizes including apparel and outdoor gear.
    “Come out and have fun!” German said. “We’re really excited about this year’s race, and know that participants, both new and returning, will really enjoy it!”
    Registration is open to all individuals over the age of 16, whether affiliated with GSU or not, and will close at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 16. The registration fee is $20 for GSU students and $40 for non-students.
    German is also the volunteer coordinator this year. If you are interested in volunteering to help facilitate the events or direct racers along the route, please contact him at phillip-german@georgiasouthern.edu. The first 40 volunteers will get a free shirt.
    For more information or to register for the race, visit georgiasouthern.edu/cri/iec. If you have questions regarding the Iron Eagle Challenge, please contact Southern Adventures Program Director Mike Willett at mwillett@georgiasouthern.edu, or call CRI’s main office at (912) 478-5436.
