Maine Woman to Trek 750 Miles Through Woods on National TV
Mainer Tracyn Thayer is the true definition of outdoor enthusiast. She has collectively spent more than a year's worth of nights outside in the woods doing more than 25 extreme adventure challenges- but nothing quite like you're about to see.
Tracyn recently competed on a TV show called 'The Brigade: Race to the Hudson'. The challenge takes her and a teammate through the woods of Canada and more than 750 miles. The goal is to reach the finish line (more than 750 miles away) in 28 days and then split a $500,000.00 grand prize.
Here's the summary from The Outdoors Channel,
With $500,000 dollars at stake, ten strangers unite to conquer a grueling cross-country wilderness expedition that pushes bodies and minds to the extreme. "The Brigade – Race to the Hudson" is a cooperative competition that forces participants to work together as they travel over 750 miles across the York Factory Express - an historic fur trade route legendary for its danger, isolation and beauty. They’ll paddle, portage, and hike through treacherous waterways and unforgiving terrain, with only 28 days to complete their journey. They have no fuel and no GPS. If they can pool their skills, strengths and courage and make it to the end in time, they’ll split the cash prize. But if the team unravels, failure is inevitable. "The Brigade" is not about eliminating foes, it’s about hanging onto every member against the odds.
We won't know if she made it in first place, or if she even made it to the end at all until the show's debut on April, 22nd. You can catch this epic outdoor adventure on the 'outdoor channel'.
