Muskoka River X Coureur des Bois: September 15-17, 2017
Now in it’s third year! The River X crew created this expansion course to the Muskoka River X Classic in 2015. Building on the heritage of the canal expeditions of the 1800’s, the Coureur des Bois will challenge even the most experienced expedition and marathon paddlers. Teams will travel along the expedition routes of these early explorers as they traverse Algonquin Park east to west from Whitney to Oxtongue Lake. After an overnight layover at Oxtonque and using only the supplies that are carried with them, teams will then merge with the MRX Classic on Lake of Bays on day two. Paddling the full north-south length of Lake of Bays the Coureur des Bois’ will complete stages 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the MRX Classic before returning to Huntsville. At approximately 220km in 48 hour or less the Coureur des Bois is entirely self supported with no re-supplies. Challenge yourself in what promises to be one of the ultimate expedition paddling races in the world ~ The 2017 Muskoka River X Coureur des Bois! Limited spots available.
