9 March 2013
First edition of the ENDURO-LUGE Challenge
In its very first season, the Enduro-Luge Challenge will test your endurance with a race course that includes snowshoeing, a rodeling and running.
Held in the enduro format, this race against the clock has your team of four (4) participants compete on-trail in three disciplines: The first leg consists of a 3km snowshoe run, followed by a 7.5km on-snow sled run and the last leg is a 1.5km Nordic race. A total of 780m of vertical with plunging riverside views must be descended by all participating teams. Hydration stations will be set up at various on-mountain locations, with an arrival corral at the end of the course to welcome teams as they arrive.
Each team must include at least one female participant. Teams must show solidarity and remain together throughout the event. The team that completes the course with the fastest time will be crowned the winner of this, the first edition of the Horizon Charlevoix ENDURO-LUGE Challenge! The activity will be followed by a friendly Awards ceremony, social and dinner at the Base Chalet.
The ENDURO-LUGE Challenge has been organized to help raise funds for Horizon Charlevoix, whose mission is to collect funds to help promote, support, offer easy access and finance outdoor sports activities for young people residing in the Capitale nationale administrative area, and particularly those residing on Charlevoix territory.
