Description

Welcome back to Savannah!

The second annual Savannah Scramble is here! 10 hours of human-powered exploration of Savannah and its surrounding nature areas will show you a side of this historic city you've never seen before. 

Adventure racing takes mountain biking, kayaking, and trekking, shakes them up like a snowglobe, and throws in a dash of orienteering to become the most addictive race format you've ever experienced. You can race either as a solo or a team, and the flexible nature of the course means anyone can join in, from weekend warriors to experienced enduros. 

Savannah is famous for its historic district, and you can be sure that part of this event will explore this 300-year-old architectural jewel, with its beautiful garden squares and haunted courtyards. But you'll also mountain bike down forgotten canal paths and nature trails, and kayak through primeval marshes, past oyster beds and century-old cypress trees, as you make your way to the finish line. 

All adventure races are based on your individual ability. None of the checkpoints are mandatory, so you can decide how much ground you want to cover and how many checkpoints you'll go after. Not a strong mountain biker? Shorten that portion of the course and focus on the trek. Not confident in the kayak? Take your time with it, and make up ground on the trek. It's the choose-your-own-adventure race you never knew existed!

The only rule is to ring the finish line bell before the 10 hour limit runs out. If you cover the entire course, you can expect about 25k in biking, 12-15k trek, and a 5k paddle. 

Teams can be 2, 3, or 4 people, or you can race as a solo competitor. 

Extensive camping and hotel options mean you can stay near the starting line or at the beach, and if you have family along they can explore the Historic District while you race!

Coming from out of town? Our partner bike shop, Savannah on Wheels, can receive and assemble your bike pre-race, or you can rent a bike from them. The unique nature of Savannah means you can do this event on a mountain bike, gravel bike, or hybrid. 

Want to use your own kayak? Use the coupon code OWNBOAT and you'll get $35 off on registration per racer!

Pit yourself against Georgia's most historic city and landscape for the race of a lifetime. Will you ring the finish line bell before time runs out?
