The Course:

  • The race loop will include roughly a 3.7 km bike ride, 0.5 km paddle and 0.5 km walk/run.
  • Racers will begin on bicycle near the main lodge riding through a forest (along the Assinboine River) into a field with switchbacks and small hills. Arriving at the lake they will leave their bicycles at their designated spot, grab their boat(s) and embark on a paddle where they must retrieve items from floating pails. Upon returning to shore, participants will bike a short distance to the hiking/running portion of the race. Returning back to their bikes, racers will ride back towards the main lodge and repeat the loop.
