All events start from the charming hamlet of Warsaw and wind through this picturesque section of the Trent-Severn Waterway.

Wilderness Traverse

Sept 30 - Oct 1, Parry Sound, ON

On this 24-hour adventure race, teams of three or four set out from Grand Tappattoo Resort, just south of Parry Sound, to trek, cycle and canoe across 150km of rugged Canadian Shield. It is one of the toughest team-based endurance challenges around and simply reaching the finish line is a massive achievement.
