The Savage Adventure Race
Saturday May 9, 2015
10 miles/3 hour sprint course
20 miles/6 hour adventure race
TWO GREAT RACES IN ONE GREAT DAY!
The Savage Adventure Race is a great race for those new to the sport, as well as for those seasoned athletes looking for a challenge. We'll give you 6 hours to complete the 20 mile course.
This year's course features a start/finish area at Sand Island Park, a beautiful river paddle on the Lehigh River and canal, plus some excellent mountain biking trails at the Walking Purchase/Lehigh Upland Preserve.
Approximate race distances.......
5 miles of running, trekking, orienteering
10 miles of mountain biking
5 miles of canoe paddling plus fun team challenges.
If you can't commit to the day for the 6 hour course, or are just getting your athletic toes back up and running, then try out the 3 hour adventure sprint. You'll get all the challenge and fun of the longer course but with half the distances. Expect about 2.5 miles on foot and paddle, and 5 miles on bike.
No navigational “plotting” experience required for either race. If you can read a map, you can do this !
Grab some friends and come on out for a great, fun challenge!
