The Raid the North Extreme adventure race took place in the Canada’s West Kootenay region in the final week of July. It was a six-day long, 500+km race that put coed teams of four against one another on a very grueling and intense course. Sprinkle in some bad weather, and the racers were literally pushed to the limits.
While at OR last week I had the opportunity to speak with racers who were at RTNX and it seems that the race was plagued with logistical and management challenges, and while they weren’t exactly happy with how the event played out, they had few complaints about the course itself. The video below not only gives you a glimpse of how beautiful things were there, but some of the various mountain biking, paddling, and trekking challenges they faced while competing.
