Le P'tit Raid Pulse (2h duration)
August 12th 2017
Wakefield, Outaouais, QC (Race HQ at ski Vorlage)
Congratulations to all teams who took part in the race! It was quite a race in the Wakefield sector. The run provided a great challenge with a lot of height difference. All teams really enjoyed their time on the CCN MTB trails. The multiple route choices with good climbs on the ski hills of Ski Vorlage leading to beautiful landscape in the trekking section were also appreciated by all participants. Crossing the finish line was an accomplishment in itself.
A big thanks to the people of municipalité de La Pêche who provided us with a lot of support for the organization of this event. Also we would like to thank all of our sponsors (KEEN, ATMOSPHÈRE, VÉLO LA SHOP, IGA EXTRA FAMILLE PLANTE, CYCLE GM BERTRAND, EXEL RADIO).
It would simply be impossible to organize such an event without the enthusiastic participation of numerous volunteers; special thanks to all of them for their contribution and for making this race a great success.
Special mention to the teams that helped other teams in trouble during the event. This kind of behavior reflects very well the spirit of good-companionship which is so present in Raid Pulse events.
Results of the event
Le P'tit Raid Pulse is accessible to all levels of experience (from 7 to 77 years of age). It is the ideal format for beginners to try adventure racing and to get a taste of this great sport.
This remote sector has a lot of potential for an awesome adventure race and let me tell you that it is quite a playground for outdoors and adventure lovers.
As usual, we want to offer a quality event in pristine nature including two disciplines of adventure racing (trekking/trail running and mountain biking).
Teams must complete the course by reaching the various check points using the maps provided by Raid Pulse. During the course the navigation difficulty level will be accessible to all levels of experience (a big part of the course will be marked). Of course, an experienced team should make fewer errors and complete the course more rapidly.
