Looking for a Challenge?

Then navigate this … Halifax Regional Search and Rescue’s 'Eco-Endurance Challenge'. There are four Navigational Competitions available, offering eight and twenty-four hour options, with an added family-friendly 4-hour Recreational option! All challenges have the same full course open to them and use the same competition map.

The Eco-Endurance Challenge 2019 will be an exciting and challenging adventure, hosted outside Halifax, Nova Scotia. The E2C will be physically and mentally demanding, with an event area of more than 100 km2 of thick forests, wet bogs, fast flowing streams and miles of backwoods trails and cart tracks. It will challenge your navigational abilities as well as endurance in the backcountry of Eastern Canada. This fundraising event promises to be equally fun and challenging for the seasoned adventure racer or the first time participant.

The E2C is a hybrid of classical orienteering and the navigational training practices of Search and Rescue Emergency Responders. Good physical conditioning is necessary to push through the tough terrain, but accurate navigation skills are key to finding controls and minimizing the distance traveled. Teams of two or more have a fixed time (4, 8 or 24 hours) to visit as many of the 60 checkpoints as possible. The winner of the event is the team that obtains the highest point total within the specified time, or is the fastest to return to the start after visiting all the markers on the course.

All profits from the Eco-Endurance Challenge are used to support the life-saving activities of Halifax Regional Search and Rescue and provide assistance to the Orienteering Association of Nova Scotia. Revenues are used to support:

• Search and Rescue Operations
• Children’s Hug-A-Tree Program
• Training and Educational Programs
• Medical Equipment and Supplies
• Capital Asset Purchases

Challenge I – Emergency Responders and SAR – 8 or 24 hour events
Challenge II – Public Competitive – 8 or 24 hour events
Challenge III – Recreational – 4, 8 or 24 hour events
Challenge IV – Armed Forces – 8 or 24 hour events
