Race Course

The course consists of a curved, snow-packed 450 foot track of three lanes. Each heat features three teams racing head- to- head. The top four teams (with best times) will challenge each other for the win in a final heat. The team who completes the course in the fastest time wins the race, has bragging rights and will be awarded the Grand Prize for heat time.

Teams

Each team must have a designated Team Captain who is responsible for communication with race organizers and will ensure all crew members are kept informed of updates/changes as they unfold.

Training

Training times at SHAW park are scheduled for Sunday, February 3 and Saturday, February 9 at 1:30 and 3:30 pm. Team Captains need to book a time slot in advance by contacting the Team Recruitment Coordinator at register@wildwintercanoerace.com.

Fees

The registration fee entitles each member to a copy of their Team Photo taken on race day courtesy of Wendy’s and a water bottle courtesy of Wiband. Secure storage will be available at the registration area on the Second Floor of Shaw Park. There is a $2 fee for gear storage. Information and arrangements at the Registration Check-In desk on race day.

Safety and Waivers

Crew members are responsible for their own safety while participating in the 2019 Wild Winter Canoe Race. Each Team Captain is responsible for ensuring that the Team Roster is completed online in full. The Team Captain is also responsible for ensuring that all individual crew members bring a hard copy of their signed Participant Waivers and identification on Race Day.

Equipment and Clothing

Race canoes will be provided by race organizers. Team gear is the responsibility of the individual teams. Teams will be dressed in a themed uniform or color scheme (preferably bright colors as they’re more easily seen against the snow). Harness your creativity! The bolder, the better! Prize for Best Costume is 5 Muskrat Hats Courtesy of Igloo Wear Canada.

Footwear

Footwear that can maximize your grip will increase your winning advantage in the race – think crampons/soccer cleats. Footwear is the responsibility of individual teams and their team members.
