Welcome to the Overland Challenge!

The 2016 Overland Challenge is taking place in New Hampshire September 21-25, and will run a 4 day route from central/Northern NH, through and around the White Mountain National Forest, up Mt. Washington, down to the Central NH/Vermont border, and will finish in the South Western part of the state. With two vehicles per team, you will pit your overland skills against the other teams in a battle to first place. Your vehicles, equipment, resilience, skills, and relationships with your navigator/co-pilot will be pushed to the limits and only one team can emerge the victor!


We have put together an incredible route that showcases some of the best off-road trails, difficult roads, scenic byways, and breathtaking scenery that NH has to offer. Each day of the route will have a different feel to it, from being lost in the woods on miles of off-road trails to countless scenic overlooks and sweeping paved curves. This challenge is designed to showcase what overland travel is all about and those teams that are prepared for adventure will prevail. Each day will bring it’s own vehicle and driver challenges, natural and fabricated. Along with the normal challenges faced in any off-road or overland adventure, each team will be wrung through a series of challenges painstakingly crafted by our staff to punish both vehicle and person. You will arrive to camp at night weary and broken. You will awake the next morning to do it all again. At the end, we are all in this for the same thing; the title of “Winner”. The three teams with the most points at the end of the event will receive trophies and prizes. More importantly, they will receive confirmation of their overland prowess and vindication that their grueling efforts throughout the week paid off.

We have attempted to level the playing field as much as possible for different vehicle build styles but in the end, those built for overland travel will prevail. There is just as much paved road driving as there is off-road travel. Big rigs built for rock crawling will suffer some days. Likewise, street vehicles will suffer on other days. Well balanced rigs with the ability to handle it all are the ones that will come out ahead.

Find a team mate. Mark your calendars. Get ready for a challenge you won’t forget.
