2012 Adventure Race Guide: Northeast
Make this the fittest and most adventurous year of your life with these challenges.
The Edge Adventure Race (Part of the GOALS Adventure Racing Association)
October 21, 2012 Southeastern, PA If you're looking to try adventure racing, this fall event offers just about everything a beginner could want. The 20 mile course includes 5 miles of trekking (a mix of running, hiking, and navigating), 10 miles of mountain biking, and five miles of canoe paddling. All that should take about six hours. If that sounds like a big bite for your first race, you can also do a shorter course, which is roughly half the distance and takes half the time. There are plenty of team options as well, so you can go it alone, or opt for a team of 2-3. You can choose a single-sex or co-ed team and there's also a Masters Division for teams whose combined ages add up to over 120. While you will have to do some navigating, it requires only map-reading skills so there's no chance you'll need the rescue party. Plus, it's held in October in the north east, which means the views will be beautiful and the temperatures will be nice and cool. That little perk should really hit you at about mile 8 of the mountain biking part. Get more information at Goalsara.org Go back to the Northeast Adventure Race Guide >> Go back to the map >>
