Salomon Adventure Challenge
Sussex, New Brunswick

July 20, 2002

The Land of the Moose

An intimate gathering of seven Maritime teams competed in the sixth Salomon Adventure Challenge of the 2002 season stationed out of Adair's Wilderness Lodge on the Bay of Fundy coastline. Along with the Raid the North adventure race, the New Brunswick events were presented by Moose Light, the Maritimes leading light beer brand.

At 1045, the teams began a 7.5 km trekking section. Almost right away, it turned into a four-team race as Team River Runners of Hampton, NB, Air Suwanna of Saint John, AAA of Dieppe, NB, and I'd Rather Be Sleeping of Oromocto, NB broke away from the other three teams.

Only separated by 2 minutes, the top four began a beautiful sea kayaking leg on the Bay of Fundy - it wouldn't have been a true Maritime race without one! Team River Runners showed their prowess in the boats, taking only 1h41m to complete this 8km section. It was also Team Tigers' (our Canadian Armed Forces contingent) turn to shine as they began their strike on the leading four teams.

Team River Runners extended their lead over Team I'd Rather Be Sleeping during the 25 km mountain bike to the finish line while Team AAA dropped back slightly. Team Tigers continued their upward rankings into CP4 by overtaking two teams.

Moose Light was front and centre to help Team River Runners celebrate their Salomon Adventure Challenge victory - nothing better at the finish line! Rounding out the top three was Team I'd Rather Be Sleeping and Team Tigers while Team AAA came in shortly thereafter to take 1st place in the Open category. Another inspirational finish goes to Team Cape of Moncton, NB who hammered to hit the eight-hour cut off right on.

Thanks to Adair's Wilderness Lodge for hosting the event, Moose Light for all your support, and to Eastern Outdoors for staging an excellent event.

See you August 10th, 2002 at Elk Lake, ON!
