2012 Untamed New England Adventure Race Sold Out!


It may still be early into 2012, but clearly adventure racing teams are already gearing up for another great year of competition. I received word this morning that the fourth edition of the Untamed New England race, which is scheduled to take place June 19-24, has already sold out its allotment of 50 teams. That’s a great sign not only for that particular race, but the health of the sport over all.

This year’s edition of Untamed New England will be four days of non-stop racing over a wilderness course in The Forks, Maine. It will feature coed teams of four in the main division, although two and three -person teams are accepted, as are crazy individuals who want to go it alone. This will be an unsupported race that will also serve as a qualifier for the 2012 Adventure Racing World Championship, which will be held in France later this year.

For more information on the event, checkout UntamedNE.com, where you’ll find more information on the course, the mandatory team gear list, and a list of teams that will be in attendance.

Hopefully the news of this early-season sell out for Untamed bodes well for other races taking place in the U.S., and other parts of the world, this year. Despite a sluggish economy, adventure racing seems to be continuing to grow across the globe, and I’m happy to see more and more people discovering it.
