The Challenge the Shield Adventure Race is an awe-inspiring wilderness endurance challenge on the rugged Canadian Shield. Teams of two have up to 6 hours to tackle as many of the 40 checkpoint or segment challenges amongst the iconic windswept pines, pristine lakes and granite rock barrens as they choose. The “choose-your-own-adventure” points-based course design is both beginner-friendly and an epic challenge of strategy and adventure for even the most experienced teams. Each of the checkpoints or segments are assigned both a difficulty rating and either a trek, paddle, bike or run discipline so teams can focus on their endurance sport strengths while also trying new challenges. Shred some wicked advanced black diamond MTB single track. Navigate to as many of the beginner and intermediate checkpoints as possible. Paddle and portage to a backcountry lake. You decide the adventure!
Challenge your friends. Challenge the Shield!
