The adaptive course also saw a decent turn out with nearly 200 participants.

Organizers said Presque Isle’s high waters helped to create the course this year.

“The way we positioned the obstacles, because of the water levels and beach erosion, we had to get kind of creative in the way we did things. That seemed to work for us,” said Laura Schaaf, Barber National Institute.
