JULY 17-19                                                       2020

The NB Expedition Challenge is an overland challenge held in New Brunswick, Canada. The event is set over the span of 3 days. Teams will compete in various challenges that will test your skills in fieldcraft, navigation, off-road driving and more. 

Teams: Each team will consist of 2 - 3 vehicles. The composition is up to you. For safety reasons, a navigator/copilot is recommended for all vehicles, but only mandatory in at least 1 of the vehicles. Number of passengers does not matter.  

CHALLENGES: 

Teams will depart to their respective challenges in a Round Robin style fashion. Each challenge is dispersed throughout the region, that means that no matter the daily challenge, getting to your event will always be part of it

This year teams will be faced with many more challenges than in previous years. Not all events will be made known, being prepared for the unknown and tackling a challenge with what you have is part of the game, therefore certain equipment is required, which will be inspected upon registration. See REQUIREMENTS below for details! 

Any navigational aid of your choice is permitted. We highly recommend the use of the Gaia App for this purpose as a backup. A copy of a Backroad Map Book will be provided to each team as primary source to navigate. NB is a giant maze of logging routes and getting lost is very easy. 

Scoring

 

The event is all TIME based. Each challenge has a start and end time. At the end of the 3 days, the team with the shortest overall time will be the winners of the CASH PRIZE. Time penalties will be assigned when rules are broken or required steps are skipped. 

  • At the event briefing teams will be given a binder with the rules, the schedule and any other relevant info. It is up to the teams to show up to their respective start points from camp each ​​day.
