Race DetailsRace Details

 

The Storm the 'Scarpment race format has been completely overhauled from its previous relay-style design, to feature two entirely new course options set against the backdrop of the mighty Niagara Escarpment. We've re-written the playbook from start to finish to create a whole new adventure race experience, made up of paddleboarding, mountain biking, paddling and trekking stages for solo racers and teams of two. 

 

Similar to our signature Storm the Trent race in May, the 'new' Storm the 'Scarpment is offered by way of two separate racecourses. The Summit short-course and Apex long-course race options provide racers with the choice of an introductory-level 25km route or a more challenging 50km course design, each of which will highlight some of the best features of Escarpment Country adventure terrain.  Racers can expect lots of short and fast stages with numerous transitions and an abundance of fantastically fun singletrack, but with paddleboarding now added as a feature discipline.
