CityWest Adventure Challenge 
Prince Rupert, BC 

Saturday, August 11, 2007 

2007 is the year Adventure Racing comes to BC's North Coast in a big way. Raid the North Extreme a bit much to jump into? You can still get the adventure racing bug in a bite-size format.

One day, 8 hours, 30kms. Mountain biking. Trekking. Paddling. Navigation. And more. You and a couple friends and a fun day in the woods. It's achieveable, it's manageable, it's fun, and most of all it's memorable. It's the CityWest Adventure Challenge.

HOST SITE: Prince Rupert, BC, on Kaien Island, the destination of BC's famed Inside Passage, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, gateway to the rainforests and impenetrable ranges of the Coastal Mountains, will make a wild and exciting host site for the First Annual CityWest Adventure Challenge.

As a legacy event of Raid the North Extreme, CityWest has signed on to bring this race to the North Coast region right through 2010, BC's Olympic year. In future years, the event will rotate among Terrace, Smithers, Kitimat and Prince Rupert - the same fun challenging event, in a new location each year!

GREAT PRIZING: Tons of great gear prizes from our sponsors.

POST-RACE DINNER AND AWARDS: A hot bountiful dinner after the race ends allows for a casual social time before the night begins. Leading up to the party, we'll have an awards ceremony to recognize the top teams, share race stories, recognize volunteers, and award more prizes for all sorts of crazy reasons. The course designer and race director will also hold a 'debrief' with interested racers to discuss the strategy and challenges of the course.

POST-RACE PARTY: Stay for the memorable Post-Race Party, a licensed event featuring a live band - the dance floor will be crowded and the prizing will be flying.

STAY ON SITE: We've got great accommodations and meal packages, so if you're coming from other communities, you can make a weekend of it. Come Friday night for the pre-race pasta and social, stay Saturday night to celebrate your achievement, and so some sightseeing or adventures of your own on Sunday. A weekend package will be available for two nights accommodations, dinner Friday night, and breakfasts Saturday and Sunday!
