Basecamp

The Crusher Community Lives Here

Understand 2021 does not follow our traditional basecamp or mass gathering format. This is CrusherEX. No mass gathering.

Improvise. Adapt. Overcome! Register and complete your Crusher event any time between July 1st and October 1st, 2021.

Meet all of the necessary requirements and we’ll send you a custom CrusherEX Enamel camp mug and CrusherEX hat by the end of the year. You’ll also get your full-color printed passport*.

* Passports are projected to be ready by July 1st, 2021. If for some reason they are not available (by the time you start your Crusher), we will provide an electronic copy and mail the printed copy to you at a later date.

It’s all about community.

We asked you to #adapt in 2020, and you did. Now we’re asking you to join us and #forge ahead. 2021 is about doing what you do best, making the most of what you have, and getting better every day.

While a lot of races out there are run by for-profit companies, that’s not the case for Marji Gesick, Polar Roll and The Crusher. All of our events are productions of the 906 Adventure Team, a 501(c)3 whose mission is to empower people to become the best version of themselves through outdoor adventure. We don’t have a large staff of people (two, to be exact) or significant overhead, and that enables us to donate a significant portion of race revenues in two ways:

Since 2015, we’ve given back more than $141,000 to the trail-builders of RAMBA, NTN, Sisu Dirt Crews, WinMan and the DCNT. We also support youth adventure programs in three communities and have plans for that number to grow in the near future.

In 2021 we’re building a learning management system to train 150+ volunteer Adventure Leaders, and have our eyes on the future: planning to grow from 500 youth served to thousands. Together with your continued support and a network of dedicated partners, we will connect kids with each other, their communities, and give them a healthy alternative to time spent on devices.
