KAN Adventure Race

In teams of two mountain bike, lake canoe, and trail run on designated trails in the Kananaskis Barrier Lake area. This is a great introduction to adventure racing because you go as hard as you want to: we have checkpoints scattered on a map and you strategize with your teammate on how to get as many points as possible. Trails are activity specific so you can play to your strengths. Your only limitations are time and mode of transportation. Come out just for race day, or stay for the entire weekend (campsite booked for Friday and Saturday night). Includes: BBQ dinner, paddling equipment, camping fees, prizes.

Race cost is per person. Please make sure both partners register for the race.

Distance: this is not an A to B style of race. Due to the nature of this race, participants do not use all of the trails or get to every checkpoint.The distances of the designated trails to choose from are 5-30 km of biking, 5-30 km of running, and 5-10 km of canoeing. You have 8 hours to collect as many points as you can.
