RAID RIB ADVENTURE RUN
SATURDAY APRIL 18, 2020
The Niagara Escarpment (aka the Giant's Rib) was a formidable physical barrier to early explorers in Ontario. Steep cliffs, rocky ground, and large creeks also made navigation difficult for these adventurers. The Raid the Rib Adventure Run takes place on the Niagara Escarpment so participants can expect lots of technical running and some interesting navigational challenges.

RAID: The "Full Raid" course will have teams of three racing over a 5 hour time limit, on a course that involves intermediate trail running and trekking skills and novice through to advanced navigation skills. (The winning team will still be expected to clean the course and cross the finish line in a 3 to 3 1/2 hr time frame.)
RAID categories: (TEAMS OF 3 ONLY) Coed, Male, Female, Masters.
HALF-RAID: This course is roughly half the distance of the full raid course, with a 3 hour time limit. The Half Raid course will follow the same format as the Raid
The Half Raid is a great option for juniors, teams that are new to the sport and experienced racers that are looking for a shorter race than the full raid distance.
HALF-RAID categories: (TEAMS OF 2 OR 3) Open, Female, Masters, Junior
Masters: Average age over 45
Juniors: 16 and under, one member may be over 16
EARLY: by February 13
