It's a wrap!
Thank you to everyone who helped to make our 2017 adventure racing season a great success - with 8 adventure races, and one national championship! We were thrilled to have a wide age range of participants, ranging from 2 years to our more seasoned racers of 75 years!
Our sprint races brought fresh faces and returning teams as well. For our new racers, we hope you have caught the adventure racing bug! For our experienced teams, it is always an absolute pleasure to have you on our race courses. We challenge you to grab a friend or 2 and get 'em racing!
Our 12 hour races were a great step up to the next level of racing, putting experienced teams to the test as USARA Regional Qualifiers.
Speaking of USARA - we had the honor of organizing, hosting, and designing the 2017 USARA Adventure Race National Championship. 62 elite teams, from across the country, joined us in the area of
Jim Thorpe, PA for 30 hours of non-stop navigation, biking, paddling, bushwacking, more navigating, more biking, more bushwacking action.
A HUGE thankyou goes out to our incredible crew of volunteers! We could not have possibly put on any of these events without you! We especially thank Chris Bartges, Glen Lewis, Bruce Kuo, Eric Schrading, Ron Barron, Mark Lattanzi, Jeff Bell, Derek Lawrence, Sandy Fillebrown, Mark Weiman, and Becca Weiman for your unending dedication in course designing this year.
In 2018 we will be focusing on building the local adventure racing community to be even more vibrant than it is. New racers, and seasoned ones alike are invited to join us at our spring Savage Adventure Race and our fall Edge Adventure Race. We'll be taking a break next year for our summer longer races - so check back with us for 2019 to see what adventure we have up our sleeve.
Enjoy this new video from GOALS. We hope it inspires you to get outside and adventure! Go explore, hike, bike, run in the woods, and catch the adventure racing bug!
