It’s true that a 130km ultra adventure ride through a frozen prairie landscape isn’t exactly for the faint of heart, but it’s also a lot more fun (and a lot more achievable) than you might think! Those 130km are broken up into manageable chunks, with no more than 20km between check-points.
This year we’re calling on you to help us find 3 people who have never taken part in an ultra-endurance race before and are willing to give it a shot. Maybe you don’t consider yourself a racerâthat’s OK. Maybe you aren’t sure how you’d prepare for such a thingâthat’s OK too.
If you, or someone you know, are up for a unique adventure, we’d like to hear from you.
We’re looking for 3 people who are willing to try this out and blog about their experiences as they prepare, learn about what’s involved, meet seasoned adventurers and how they feel about it once they finish.
Don’t worry! If you’re considering this, you won’t be left to figure things out on your own.Â We’ll help you prepare, give you advice about what gear you might want, invite you along for a group-ride or two, and generally support you to make sure you have a great first year.
Interested? Know someone who should try it? Have questions about whether you’re really up for it?
Tell us why below, and we’ll be in touch to let you know what’s next.
We’ve gotten a tremendous response to this and will be contacting applicants shortly.
