Inferno Adaptive Division

Overview

Partnering with AbilityPLUS, the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine added an adaptive racer category to the Tuckerman Inferno to encourage competitors with physical and intellectual disabilities to join us in athletic pursuits.

The first iteration of the Adaptive component of the Tuckerman Inferno was dubbed the Wildcat Wildfire race, because the hike and ski portion was held at the Wildcat Mountain ski area instead of in Tuckerman Ravine. There was a great response to filling this new team category, and thus the adaptive division continues to grow and include more teams and racers. In 2014 the Wildcat Wildfire event was merged into the main Tuckerman Inferno adventure race and the Adaptive teams competed in the same venue with all other athletes. 

Competitors with physical and intellectual disabilities are still encouraged to continue to enroll in the Tuckerman Inferno pentathlon and to spread the word on competing in this world class event.

Adaptive Teams

A Tuckerman Inferno Adaptive Team may be any SPORT team configuration of 2, 3, 4, or 5 team members. Only one member of the team needs to have a disability in order to qualify as an Adaptive team.

Accommodations will be allowed for the disabled competitor, and should be noted in the team registration. Examples of allowed accommodations include, but are not limited to, the use of a guide or the use of specialized equipment.

For further information or questions regarding the adaptive division of the race, contact Liz Stokinger, Director at the AbilityPLUS program (603) 374-2688.
