If you aren’t a snow lover like the Outdoor Evangelist and are waiting for the weather to clear to get out and live then I have just the event for you. Come out and see just one more reason why Dayton is a great place to live, even when we are snowed in!
The Adventure Summit is one of the largest expositions of outdoor skill, culture and experience in the Midwest showcasing Dayton, Ohio as The Outdoor Adventure Capital of the Midwest.
The Adventure Summit weekend is filled with inspiring presentations, a bustling expo, competitions and cultural activities like an art gallery, live music and beer tastings, yes I said BEER!
All for FREE. Five Rivers MetroParks and Wright State University have scheduled this weekend of inspiration for March 4 – 6, 2010 at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

The 2010 lineup of featured personalities is one of the best in Adventure Summit history led by Charlie Engle. Charlie is a renowned ultra endurance athlete and humanist. His signature adventures are a 4,500 mile trek across the Sahara Desert and a run across America. We are kicking off the weekend on Thursday March 4th with a Running the Sahara screening at 7:00 pm highlighting Charlie’s Sahara adventure. Charlie will give a keynote presentation chronicling his life of adventure on Friday March 5th at 8:00 pm in the Wright State University Apollo Room. Learn more about Charlie at www.charlieengle.com
Saturday’s lineup of speakers is just as star-studded with Andrew Skurka (Long Distance Hiker and Backpacker), Jon Dorn ( Editor in Chief Backpacker Magazine) and Philip Nagle (local resident who complete a 48 state in 48 day bike ride).
