THE FORKS, Maine — Ladies and gentlemen, grab your paddles, lace up your trail runners and point your bike down the single track — adventure racing has come to Maine.
Beginning June 17, more than 40 teams from around the globe will run, bike, canoe, raft and rappel their way over a 200-mile Untamed New England Adventure Race through the rugged central Maine highlands.
SOUTH PORTLAND/ CAPE ELIZABETH — There are two things you need to know about Ultimate. First, it’s not Frisbee. That, after all, is a trademarked brand. The flying discs used in Ultimate are, well . . . they’re not Frisbees. Let’s just agree to that.
Second, Ultimate is not a lazy game of backyard toss. It is one of the most exciting, fast-paced, nerve-wracking athletic competitions one will ever witness.
A tournament this weekend highlights the growth of club teams here and the popularity of the game.
