On this episode we dive into the mind and the guts of the Mission Uncharted Survival Race with founder Josh Wheeler. Josh is an outdoor enthusiast turned race director that has been hosting this event across the country. Mission Uncharted is a team backpacking race where hikers excel, runners will have to engage the brakes , and the novice can test their abilities across trails ranging from 30-40 miles all while completing a series of challenges that will test one's bushcraft and survival skills. We entered the event back in March where we met Josh, his crew, and finished the event strong. We qualified for nationals, gained some friends, a sense of accomplishment, and a thirst for more. His event has a simple concept designed for all hiking abilities, with a format that evens the playing field and makes for fun, exciting, and memorable time with passionate people.
