Hello racers!

 

We are quickly approaching The Savage Adventure Race! Our course designer, GlenLewis, has been working hard to put together a great event for you!

Driving directions to the race start and general race rules are now posted. Please be sure to read through all the pages: http://goalsara.org/2019-races/the-savage/information-for-racers/
 

Our main staging area will be at Pavilion #4. Parking is available at the small lot in front of the pavilion, and the field across from the pavilion. DO NOT park in the lots for the surrounding pavilions.

8:00-9:15am: Team check in
8:40am : Beginner Intro to Adventure Racing Clinic
9:30am: Team meeting/race briefing
Race begins 10:00AM

 

Please check the team list for accuracy.  Email us with any changes.  In particular, check if your team is in the open or masters division. Please note, on race day, if there is only one team registered in a masters category, that team will be moved to the open division.  http://goalsara.org/2019-races/the-savage/registered-racers/
 

VOLUNTEERS: We can use some additional helping hands. Please let us know if you know of any one (family, friend, or enemy) that can spend a few hours with us that day. We also could use help in course CP clean up.
All volunteers will receive goodie bag, lunch, our eternal gratitude, and 20% off their next GOALS race (or your next GOALS race). Email us back as soon as you know.

What to expect for the race format?
At check in you will receive your race map. When the race begins there will be an opening activity where you will receive your race passport. This will determine if you will bike 1st, canoe 1st, foot orienteer 1st or complete the team challenges 1st. Teams rotate throughout the day.

The race is points based scoring. This means that each checkpoint has a certain point value. Your team has up to 3 or 6 hours to collect as many points as you can. Your strategy may include skipping some points, or trying to go for all of them.

If you are over the 3 or 6 hour time limit, your team loses points. . If a team is one minute late (you have up to 6 hours 59 seconds) your highest point will be deducted. The next highest point will be deducted every 5 minutes thereafter. (6 hours 6 minutes, 12 hours 11 minutes, etc.)   In other words---don’t be late!


Thanks and see you on the race course!
