Extreme Sports and Races in the Hudson Valley, Upstate NY

Local adventure-sports events leave participants dirty, tired — and exhilarated



(page 1 of 5)

The notion of “summer fun” means different things to different people: lazing around a pool or a sandy beach, hiking or biking along a rail trail, playing a round of golf or a set of tennis, or simply prowling through an air-conditioned mall.

But as unlikely as it may seem, there are those among us who would rather spend hot summer weekends running up and over five of the Catskill high peaks, navigating obstacle courses that include mud pits and smoldering coals, or swimming 120 miles of the Hudson River in seven days. In the Valley, extreme sports enthusiasts can get their endorphin rush at four different events this season: the Spartan Sprint, the Eight Bridges Swim, the Escarpment Trail Run, and the Warrior Dash.
