TWO GREAT RACES IN ONE GREAT DAY!
The Savage Adventure Race is a great race for those new to the sport of adventure racing, as well as for those seasoned
athletes looking for a challenge. We'll give you either 3 or 6 hours to complete the fun filled course on foot, boat and mountain bike!
This spring adventure race will have you running, navigating, biking, and thinking (yes your brain and team work are a must!). If you're tired of the "same old - same old" and want to add some creative sport to your life - then this one is for you!
Get ready to grab a friend or two, and come on out for a day of outdoor adventure and team work. Want to try the race alone? No problem - we offer a solo division as well.
How it works: On the morning of the event participants will be given a race map with the
checkpoints pre-plotted on the maps. A fun opening activity will determine if your team will travel on foot or mountain bike first. You must visit every checkpoint together as a team, and you have
either 3 or 6 hours to get to as many of these points as possible. The most points collected, and fastest time determines the winner.
You must bring your own mountain bike, and the trails are a combination of paved, and single track. The foot navigation section will have you running both on the trail and into the woods!
Should we have inclement weather, we have an equally awesome alternate course design that will incorporate hard surface trails and lots of fun foot adventure!
The morning of the race we will also offer a pre-race mini adventure race training session, for those new to the sport. So don't be shy, come on out and try something new! If you've raced with us before, come on back -- no two adventure race courses are the same!!
Grab some friends and come on out for a great, fun challenge!
