Erwin Wilderness Challenge 2016

Team Bleecker was proud to be both a sponsor and participant at the 6th Annual Erwin Wilderness Challenge on June 4th! This course runs through the countryside, down the Cape Fear River and into Downtown Erwin.

Created in 2011 by local community leaders, the Erwin Wilderness Challenge is an 18-mile kayak/bike/run triathlon. Over 60 participants entered the event, and all proceeds were used to support local airmen at Pope Air Field to attend the “Airman’s Rodeo” in Washington State.

THE COURSE:

The course begins with a 10-mile bicycle ride through the countryside to a wildlife landing. Phase 2 will begin at the landing with an 8-mile kayaking trip down the Cape Fear River to the Cape Fear River Park in Erwin. The third and final phase will be a 3-mile run through Erwin to connect to the Dunn-Erwin Rail Trail and will end at the gazebo in Downtown Erwin.

Team Bleecker had gave it their all and are proud to have placed 3rd in the 2016 Erwin Wilderness Challenge! Bleecker Bleecker!

Congratulations to John, Sam, Chad and Bleecker Bird for placing 3rd in the 2016 Erwin Wilderness Challenge.
