Discussion: Race rescheduled
in: Challenge the Shield: Winter 3-hour (Mar 27, 2021 - Parry Sound, ON, CA)
Wil Smith and I will be organizing two adventure races at the Georgian Nordic Outdoor Activity Centre near Parry Sound, ON in 2021. We have added a little more information to our ChallengetheShield.ca web site. The date of our autumn 6-hour event is finalized (October 2) and our winter 3-hour event will be March 27 or April 3 (we need to wait for the XC ski race schedule before finalizing our date).
Georgian Nordic has over 30km of ski trails and fat bike trails (double track and single track MTB trails in summer), is adjacent to several pristine lakes and is on the edge of massive tracks of wilderness. In fact the Wilderness Traverse race has raced through this area several times. We have also developed an incredible 50 km^2 lidar map for the events. The races are fundraisers for the GNOAC trail development and youth programs which I personally hope in the next year or so will also include Adventure Running Kids.
We hope you can join us for these multi sport adventures and we will likely even have an option for those that would prefer to stay on foot and run (or snowshoe in winter). Check out the web site that is still under construction and please help us spread the word through our instagram account
