Across the Highlands ChallengeDate: Fri, Jul 15 2016 - Sat, Jul 16 2016
The AHC’16 is four to six hours of outdoor adventure on July 16th topped off by a scrumptious BBQ. This year the event will take place in beautiful Cheticamp on the West coast of the Island.
Riders can choose to ride the 35km Adventure, the 45km Pursuit or the 65km grueling Marathon. They will all ride through the historic landscapes of abandoned farmlands, 2-tracks, fire roads and the remains of old gypsum mines full of caves, sinkholes and dramatic white cliffs. The three courses are well-signed and GPS co-ordinates are provided to all participants. Patrol crews will be on the course and at strategic locations to direct participants and to provide emergency assistance. There will be four Pit Stops at 10-15km intervals where riders can refuel with high energy healthy food and refreshments.
