Discussion: Early bird deadline in three weeks

in: Challenge the Shield Adventure Run (May 5 - Parry Sound, ON, CA)

Exactly 2 months to race date and we have a few updates. There is still lots of snow in the forest in Parry Sound but it is melting fast. We will be posting more updates to our web site and Instagram over the next few weeks leading up to race day. Early bird deadline is in three weeks and we have hard cap on entries so register early to avoid disappointment.

The 6-hour race comprises three stages that must be completed (in full) before moving on to the next stage.
Stage 1: 15km point-to-point course with 8 checkpoints
Stage 2: ~25km, 24 checkpoints (complete in any order)
Stage 3: 7-10km 4 checkpoints (complete in any order)

We don't think a team of two can clear this course. Prove us wrong!

We were going to sign up until we saw this rule, which we're not sure we can follow for 6 hours in the woods:

"5. Participants must always stay on feet."

:) Just kidding, we've registered!

haha yeah we just copied the DGL Raid rules.

Awesome! The course is looking really fun. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. ie. bring the Raid the Hammer race style to a wilderness setting. CTS Nav will be tougher than RTH but there will be a LOT less climb than RTH.
