Here is the latest on this upcoming event. Check it out and hopefully we will see some of you on the course. With five months until teams gather in British Columbia at the start line of Raid the North Extreme 2011, organizers say the event will soon be sold out! Due to the rugged wilderness nature of the course, registration is capped at 50 teams. This ensures the highest standards of safety and logistical support is achieved at all times, and provides a world-class experience for all teams, communities and partners of this internationally acclaimed expedition race. The current roster of 47 registered teams is quite diverse, both in terms of countries and experience levels. Canada and the US are well-represented, almost from coast to coast to coast, with teams coming from BC across to Quebec, and from 16 states including Texas, Maryland, California, and Pennsylvania. Teams are also registered from Australia, Mexico, Ireland, Switzerland and St Martin. The list of teams, complete with information on each racer, can be seen at www.raidthenorthextreme.com. The internationally acclaimed expedition race will happen July 23 to 31, 2011, in the rugged and historic West Kootenays of BC. Four-person co-ed teams will travel 6 days non-stop, navigating a 500km+ unmarked expedition course through the Selkirk, Monashee and Purcell mountain ranges in BC’s West Kootenays by foot, canoe, kayak, mountain bike and fixed ropes.
