The Red Bull Divide and Conquer adventure race is coming to Canada’s West Coast in a few weeks and the event promises plenty of action for adventure athletes. The Divide and Conquer features a unique format in which teams of three compete against one another across a wilderness course, but unlike other AR events, this one is run in relay-style with each team member taking a leg.
The race is scheduled to take place on Vancouver’s North Shore and will start with a mountain run up Grouse Mountain. Twice! That’s nearly 6000 feet (1828 meters) of elevation gain just to get things started. From there it is on to the mountain bike section, which will be an all-mountain affair that will test a rider’s downhill ability as well his or her technical and speed riding. The event will finish up with a paddling leg on the Capilano River that will send kayakers out onto Class IV waters in a deep canyon run.
This looks like it will be amazingly fun and registration is still open. If you’d like to put together a team for the Red Bull Divide and Conquer, you can enter the race here.
