About the event
2019 Overlanders Xperience Championship
Overlanders Xperience is an organized adventure in which participants will have to follow a series of waypoints in a predetermined distance and time frame, overcoming obstacles and challenges in order to get the less penalization points to win the Xperience. It will be 2 days of driving (Saturday Afternoon & Sunday all day) you may arrive on Friday (additional fee on site) and spend the 3 nights camping until Monday (Labor Day)(Saturday and Sunday Night camping are included). In this event we are going to use a private property where special challenges will take place.

This is not a speed race, not a guided trip either. A GPS Tracker Device will be installed in each vehicle by our technical team to verify your track, participants will have to navigate by themselves in between checkpoints in the time and distance allotted in a road book that they will be given. Estimated driving time for each day is 7 hours but it could be more. We will have a Base Camp suited for all participants that will have basic facilities, a raffle will be hold on Saturday night and the awards of the last event will be given to the winners. Winners of this event will be announced via social media and our website on the following weeks and awards will take place on the next Xperience.
