nr_logo_socialHere at Nerve Rush HQ, we gather the most gut-wrenching and thrill-seeking video clips and information from the Internet superhighway into a mishmash of collective adrenaline.

We are the premier source of information for extreme sports and adventure activities. We document endurance races, interview athletes and write about the world’s highest mountains. We produce useful (and downloadable) guides that help deconstruct the world of extreme sports. We also post some pretty rad videos.

Consider us a one-stop source of awesomeness. A place to browse the extremities of life. A repository of adrenaline, adventure and everything between. A place to dream, to learn, to find inspiration and to be awed.

The Nerve Rush team wishes you a pleasant browsing experience. As we’re constantly adding content and adapting our editorial practices, we urge you to connect with us—questions, comments, concerns, ideas, you name it.
