The fourth annual Wildlands Adventure Challenge will take place on Saturday, September 25, and Sunday, September 26, 2021.
The 8-hour race on Saturday, September 25, will take racers on a curated adventure by foot, bike, and kayak through the diverse terrain in the Great Pond Mountain Wildlands.
A beginners' race on Saturday, September 25, will give those new to adventure racing a fun yet gentle introduction to the sport. The beginners' race will last between one and three hours and will include hiking and paddling in provided boats.
And a two-day stage race (separate 8-hour races on Saturday and Sunday) will give advanced racers more terrain to explore, including at least one packraft leg.
The race is hosted by the Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust and proceeds from the race will benefit the trust. The course will be designed by the members of Strong Machine Adventure Racing, a nationally ranked adventure race team based in Portland, Maine and the organizers of the Maine Summer Adventure Race.
