Laurentides Northman Race Timber 2017-09-30  


Northman Race


Saturday, September 30, 2017
6820, ROUTE 117

Let’s go back to the 1800s in northern Canada. When 30 000 Canadians went logging every year to build our country. They didn’t have it easy, and yet are known for their incredible toughness and hard work even in the grueling winter season. 

Come take part in a hybrid endurance weekend, focused on the terrain, course and obstacles, based on the original logger. Our ancestors were real-life superheroes. Felling and milling lumber on our challenging land to build a future for their families.

To honor them, wear a plaid shirt and come live the ultimate obstacle race experience at "The Northman Race”.

Be warned, the log carry, tree climbing, wood sawing and ax throwing are only the beginning of your adventure with the NorthMan. No matter the obstacles in his path, the logger managed to make it back to camp before dark. 

For our competitive athletes, the event The NorthMan Race: «Timber» will be closer to what our beloved grandparents had to endure. This course will be longer, tougher and will have more obstacles. This challenge will crown our very best head to toe athletes. 

Are YOU ready to live the ultimate NorthMan experience?
