We are delighted to welcome you to our website and we invite you to explore each tab in order to learn all the important details surrounding the event, “Coureur des bois”.

This event is intended to be a simulation of the French-Canadian woodsman who would venture into the woods to reach settlements in order to trade various European items for furs.  The race itself is composed of four participants who will race in three different events.  These participants will have to carry a package from start to finish in a relay race fashion.  Each participant will choose between canoeing, mountain biking or running an obstacle course to complete the race.  Several prizes will be drawn at random for all participants, including a mountain bike from Jessome. There will also be a prize of 380$ for participants who come in first place, a prize of 260$ for second place and a prize of 160$ for third place.

We are very proud to be able to offer such an activity in the region of St- Joseph for the 2014 World Acadian Congress.

Hoping that the pictures will give you a taste of the countryside to discover, we hope you will join us on August 9.

Be part of the 25 teams who will participate in this challenge.
