Presentation of the 2015 August 29th 4 hour Sprint AR
Municipality of La Pêche sector Wakefield, Outaouais QC
Congratulations to all the teams for a great race! The weather was great and racers had a blast on a tough and challenging course. The MTB on the NCC trails, the caving section, the underwater CP's and the beautiful landscapes in the trekking and paddling sections made this event a unique and intense adventure. Crossing the finish line was an accomplishment in itself.
A big thanks to the people of municipalité de La Pêche who provided us with a lot of support for the organization of this event. Also we would like to thank all of our sponsors (KEEN, ATMOSPHÈRE, VÉLO LA SHOP, IGA EXTRA FAMILLE PLANTE, TIGRE GÉANT, EXEL RADIO, LES CAISSES DESJARDINS).
It would simply be impossible to organize such an event without the enthusiastic participation of numerous volunteers; special thanks to all of them for their contribution and for making this race a great success.
Special mention to the teams that helped other teams in trouble during the event. This kind of behavior reflects very well the spirit of good-companionship which is so present in Raid Pulse events.
See you next year for another great AR season.
