Nearly 20 years ago, we started organizing a certain type of adventure.
There's always a wilderness and adventure ethos . . .
Respect for the environment . . .
We've worked with niche private groups or produced open-to-the-public events . . .
Often resulting in self-discovery and lots of fun . . .
Some of our races become unforgettable life experiences, but like most things in life, you get out of it what you invest into it.
In 2018, we organized the Untamed New England Expedition Race known as the Abenaki Pursuit edition.
This was the sixth Untamed New England Expedition Race. Previously we've set:
|June 18-22, 2014: "100 Mile Wilderness" edition based from The Forks, ME|
|June 19-24, 2012: "Western Maine Mountains" edition based from The Forks, ME|
|Auguest 11-15, 2010: "Indian Stream Territory" edition based from Dixville Notch, NH|
|July 8-12, 2009: "Great North Woods" edition based from Dixville Notch, NH|
|June 19-24, 2008: "White Mountains" edition based from Franconia, NH|
The 2018 course stretched the length of the border of New Hampshire and Maine, starting in the Mahoosuc Range at the Sunday River Resort with a dramatic finish on the Atlantic Ocean near Portsmouth, NH. There were 4 days of non-stop racing for the sold-out field of teams.
The full course visual can be seen here or the outline of each race section is here.

Held June 18-22, 2014, the Untamed New England "100 Mile Wilderness" edition was a qualifier for the Adventure Racing World
Championships held in Ecuador later in the year. The race included 4 days of non-stop mountain biking, canoe paddling, trail running,
off trail trekking, orienteering, fixed ropes, whitewater rafting and more. The race was based around Moosehead Lake and the town of
100-Mile Wilderness figured prominently in the 250 mile race course.
For a taste of this memorable event, here's the map teams used for Checkpoints 32-34 on the Abenaki Lost World section of the race -- this was a trekking and packrafting leg of the event. The following excerpt from the racer booklet provides a quick course overview:
