Have a great time for a good cause in beautiful Northern Portage County. The Headwaters Adventure Race starts and ends in historic Mantua Village and involves a 2-mile run on the Headwaters Trail past a State nature preserve, a 10-mile pedal past scenic landscapes and preserved farmlands, and a 5-mile paddle on the lovely Upper Cuyahoga State Scenic River.
