The Savage Adventure Race

Sunday April 27, 2014

Nockamixon State Park, Quakertown, PA

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.

 

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!
