The Challenge the Shield Multi-Sport Adventure Race is back for our 2nd annual race. CTS-AR is an awe-inspiring wilderness endurance challenge on the rugged Canadian Shield. The host site is once again the Nine Mile Lake Beach near the Georgian Nordic Outdoor Activity Centre (~10km NE of Parry Sound, ON).

RACE FORMAT
6-hour time limit. A total of 2,500 points are up for grabs. The race begins with a three-part mandatory segment challenge (525 points); a marked-route ~ 3.5 km run/trek, followed by an ~ 2 km paddle, and then an ~ 7 km bike. After completing the segment challenge, there are trek, paddle and bike checkpoint challenge sections (up to 625 points each) which can be taken in any order. Each checkpoint challenge section has 9 checkpoints of varying difficulty and points value (you can choose as many as you like in each discipline). The more checkpoints you get the more points you score. Total checkpoint challenge section distances are ~12 km for the trek, ~12 km for the paddle, and ~20 km for the bike. The race ends with an optional 100 point marked-route swim-run segment challenge. Total distance to clear the course is ~60km.

The terrain for the CTS-AR is similar to this year's Wilderness Traverse and the CTS-AR is the perfect 'warm up' for WT2024. We hope to see you there.

Early bird fees until midnight tonight (May 31).

AR on Ontario’s Canadian Shield with lidar maps is a pretty darn awesome experience. Hope to see you there.

We are a 100% volunteer organized event. All profits go to trails
and map development as well as local Parry Sound youth programs.
