14th Annual Eco Adventure Race

We Celebrate Earth Day in Action!

FortWhyte Alive’s EcoAdventure Race is a multi-sport adventure race that includes paddling, running, orienteering and cycling. Using bodies, boats and bikes, racers cover a 35K course through FortWhyte Alive and Assiniboine Park. This race provides a dynamic demonstration of zero emission transportation and engages both racers and spectators in a unique, exciting outdoor sport adventure.

The EcoAdventure is an unsupported race (ie: no support crews needed). You drop off your gear at the designated spots before the race begins and then head back to the start line to hear the words ‘GO’! This race is an adventure so come prepared to deal with unexpected situations. This means bringing the mandatory gear plus any other equipment that you think will help you, as long as the rules do not prohibit it.

Take the challenge in support of environmental education!
