The Savage Adventure Sprint Race

Sunday June 4, 2017

Wharton State Forest, NJ

3 & 6 Hour Courses




The Savage Adventure Sprint 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 up to 3 or 6 hours to complete the course.


6 hour course 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.


Wharton State Forest encompasses over 110,000 acres of land filled with miles of waterways, off road trails and beautiful landscapes. From the dense pine and oak woodlands to mosaic meadows and cedar swamps, the area offers a unique look at the hidden treasures of New Jersey. On this race course you could spot river otters or spy an osprey on your paddle. Perhaps you’ll stumble upon the ghostly remains of yesteryear’s industrial villages. 

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!


For those of you who would like even a bigger challenge, come earlier and stay later in our 12 Hour Adventure Race. The 12 HR event  is a USARA National Qualifier and North American Adventure Race Series Participant Race. Click here to be taken to that page.
