What is the overland challenge?
The overland challenge will make you fight man, machine, and nature in a set of challenges that will test your comfort zone. This rally style challenge will take you on some of the most scenic routes that Georgia has to offer. You will travel across the state of Georgia as a team exploring what the area has to offer to challenge both you and your team! Later you will be tested on your ability to sort through problems, mechanical failures, vehicle recovery and team challenges. All camping will be included for both nights of the challenge on private property with limited resources but a restroom will be available on site.
All proceeds from this challenge will be donated in full to a Veteran Operated Veteran Focused Charity.
How it will work:
Each day will consist of physical team challenges, technical vehicle obstacle work at Georgia's best off-road parks, public land navigation and other surprise challenges. Each team will receive the starting coordinates for the challenge approximately 7 days prior to the start of the challenge. Each morning, every team will be handed a list of challenges that must be completed before sundown. Each team will travel through some of the most rugged terrain that Georgia has to offer all while testing your navigational skills through public lands and private property. Each evening the challenge will finish on private property where camping has been prearranged for all of our competitors, you will need to provide all of your personal camping necessities however there will be a restroom onsite.
Everyone wants to know how to win I get it! Scoring will be based on a numerical point system with proportional values assigned to your time, distance traveled and team challenge ranking. The winner will be the team with the most amount of accrued points at the end of the challenge.
