Known for their professional expertise in outdoor adventures and in pioneering Maine expeditions, the Northern Outdoor leadership team consulted on this year’s Untamed New England racecourse design, as it did 17 years earlier for Mark Burnett’s 1995 Eco-Challenge. That first Eco-Challenge race was held in Maine’s backcountry as part of ESPN’s X-Games. Burnett, often called the Father of Adventure Racing, is better known these days as the producer of hit TV-shows Survivor, The Voice and Shark Tank.
Northern Outdoors will host all pre-race meetings, post-race activities, and media operations. After traversing the rugged backcountry course, racers will get to kick back at Northern Outdoors’ Kennebec River Brewery and celebrate with refreshing, icy cold ales and lagers handcrafted on-premise.
