Adventure Races

NEF organises two major races:

• India’s first and only adventure race – NECC NEF Enduro3, the Adventure Race

Held in February every year, NECC NEF Enduro3, the Adventure Race puts the participants through a grueling task of steering past 250 kms in a span of 60 hrs; completing a combination of activities like Mountain biking, Trekking, River Rafting, Rifle shooting and River Crossing.

• The Monsoon Night Adventure Race - Enduro3 the Inter Collegiate Adventure Race

The Night Adventure race requires the teams to trek a distance of around 20 kms from the Katraj Tunnel to the Sinhagad fort in Pune, Maharashtra negotiating more then 15 hills along the way.

NEF’S Infrastructure

NEF organises the races using its own infrastructure:


To ensure quick and safe movement of men, material and avoid delays due to logistical problems, NEF uses its own team of MUVs (multi-utility vehicles), motorcycles, speed boats and trucks.

Radio networking:

The NEF Amateur Radio Club - a team of amateur licensed wireless radio (HAM Radio) operators is stationed at all nodal points along the race route. The team works with 20 radio base stations and 20 walkie-talkie sets. NEF also conducts HAM Radio/ Amateur Wireless training classes.

GPS (global positioning system):

Accurate and true-to-scale maps of the race are marked using the GPS system. For 2-3 months, the male and female members of the NEF meticulously plan and test the feasibility of the race on physical and time parameters. This is done through numerous reconnaissance treks (recce) along the race route.


In order to man various Time control, Passage control locations a large number of people are needed. Also there are many committees which take care of various departments e.g. course opening team, results committee, medical team, support team, rescue team, communication team, general administration team .
