About This Activity

The Jersey Inferno is now in its second year and is NYARA’s newest adventure race. Participants will have 10 hours to work their way through some hellish northern New Jersey terrain on mountain bikes, kayaks and on foot. Teams of 2, 3 or 4 are welcome and will be treated to a new course with great views.

The Jersey Inferno is also a USARA Regional Qualifying race. We will be combining the co-ed 3 person and co-ed 4 person teams into the “premier” category. The top 3 co-ed teams in the “premier” category will be eligible to compete in the USARA National Championship Race. In addition, the 1st place coed team from each regional qualifying race will receive a $400.00 sponsorship, provided by the regional qualifying race, to be applied to the team’s entry fee for the 2014 USARA Adventure Race National Championship.

The race venue will be Mountain Creek Resort in lovely Vernon, NJ.  Bring the family! While you’re out racing, your family can enjoy golf, a spa,  the Mountain Creek Water Park or or the Bike Park for some amazing downhilling.
