Raid the North: Ottawa River Valley
(Esprit Rafting - Fort Coulonge, QC)
July 14-16, 2006


Esprit Rafting, in the Ottawa River Valley near Fort Coulonge, QC will make a wild and exciting host site for Raid the North. While hosting our 2005 Championship races here, we were reminded not only of how incredible the region is, but what great hosts the Esprit gang are. The area offers exceptional course design opportunities, including daunting rock faces and canyons, and churning whitewater of all levels.

WIN RAID THE NORTH EXTREME ENTRY: That's right - the winning team will walk away with a free entry to Raid the North Extreme 2006: BC's North Coast. Second and third places will be awarded 50% and 25% discounts on RTNX as well.

NEW SHIRTS - this year, every competitor and support crew gets a Salomon Motomesh Performance Shirt retail value $45! And you thought our shirts were great before...

BIGGER, BETTER POST-RACE DINNER AND AWARDS: A hot bountiful dinner served between 5 and 7 allows for a casual social time before the night begins. Leading up to the party, we'll have an awards ceremony to recognize the top teams, share race stories, recognize volunteers, and award more prizes for all sorts of crazy reasons.

NEW POST-RACE PARTY: Stay for the "Best Post-Race Party" (Get Out There Magazine) featuring a live band all the way from Mexico, and a cozy bar and patio, with comical race stories, cheesy games, and unique stunts worth cool prizes.

STAY ON SITE: We've got great accommodations and meal packages, so come early and stay late. Come Thursday night for the pre-race pasta and social, stay Sunday night to celebrate your achievement, and rest after an exhilarating weekend. Weekend packages will be available for combinations of two nights accommodations (Thurs and Sun), dinner Thursday and Friday night, lunch Friday, and breakfasts Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
