Eco Endurance Challenge
|Date:||Sat April 25|
Halifax Regional Search and Rescue in co-operation with the Orienteering Association of Nova Scotia is pleased to announce Eco-Endurance Challenge 2009. E2C 2009 will be our 9th annual ROGAINE. Each year the E2C grows in terms of number of participants and teams. This year, the E2C planning committee hopes to grow our event and attract over 350 participants - so bring a friend and pass the word. This year we will welcome some new participants with our new Armed Forces Challenge.
Profits from the E2C go towards the life-saving activities of Halifax Regional Search and Rescue and outdoor educational programs including the children’s ‘Hug-A-Tree’ program.
By now your feet have healed and you have forgotten the fatigue of 24-hours of fighting through the brush, streams and bogs of E2C 2008. Perhaps you are even thinking, “hey, getting turned around for a few minutes in the dark was not that bad, it was a lot of fun”.
Need some inspiration, visit our archives at www.hrsar.ca/e2c/archives08.htm for a point by point run down of the route and the challenges faced by last years 1st place team “Hail to the Chimp”.
E2C 2009 will be held in 12 weeks on the weekend of April 25th and 26th 2009 where participants will get a chance to do it all again. E2C 2009 will be held outside Halifax, Nova Scotia in a completely new competition area with a potential 220 square km zone with 60 points to navigate.
