South Coast Adventure Race to unveil ‘Championship Format’ for 2019

Friday, December 7, 2018

 Essex Region – The Essex Region Conservation Authority is announcing a new format for the South Coast Adventure Race (SCAR), making the 2019 edition the ultimate experience for Adventure Racers. To celebrate five years of incredible SCAR races, this year’s course will be the SCAR Championship edition!  A revamped course will take competitors through the best technical sections of previous races over 12-14 hours. Racers will battle the best elements of Windsor-Essex County using the three traditional SCAR disciplines (orienteering, cycling, paddling). As always, the race will be followed by a post-race bash with local food and drink.

SCAR Race Director Rob Pula wants to showcase the best parts of previous races, and is confident that past participants who completed old races will be able to be apart of the SCAR Championship.

“The past five years have been an amazing experience designing challenges for Adventure Racers of all skill levels,” says Pula. “We wanted to celebrate SCAR by creating the Championship Race highlighting the best areas from past races and creating a course that will push the average competitor even further. This will be very unique because there aren’t any other races of this length in Southwestern Ontario.”

The SCAR Championship will take place on Saturday, June 15th and will feature a dark start at a location to be determined. Information on SCAR can be found at https://raceroster.com/events/2019/20845/the-scar-championship-dawn-til-dusk as well as on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SCARAdventureRace/
