Event descriptionThe E2C is a hybrid of classical orienteering, ultra-distance running and the navigational training practices of Search and Rescue Emergency Responders. Good physical conditioning is necessary to push one through the tough terrain, but accurate navigation skills are key to finding controls and minimizing the distance traveled. The 24 hour challenge is mentally exhausting as team members must always be aware of their surroundings. Teams of two or more have a fixed time (8 or 24 hours) to visit as many of the 60 checkpoints as possible. The winner of the event is the team that obtains the highest point total within the specified time, or is the fastest to return to the start after visiting all the markers on the course. Challenge I Emergency Responders & SAR 8 or 24 hour events Challenge II Public Competitive 8 or 24 hour events Challenge III Recreational 8 or 24 hour events Challenge IV Armed Forces 8 or 24 hour events
Terrain descriptionThe Eco-Endurance Challenge 2017 is an exciting and challenging adventure hosted outside Halifax, Nova Scotia. The E2C will be physically and mentally demanding, with an event area of more than 100 km2 of thick forests, wet bogs, fast flowing streams and miles of backwoods trails and cart tracks. It will challenge your navigational abilities as well as endurance in the backcountry of Eastern Canada. This fundraising event promises to be equally fun and challenging for the seasoned adventure racer or the first time participant.
