Témiscamingue is a resource region characterized by its vast expanses of forest, farmlands, numerous lakes and rivers, diverse fauna, and the quality of its landscapes. The forestry industry, agriculture, vacation resorts, and nature-based recreational tourism activities have flourished thanks to the region’s rich natural resources. The territory is a true paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and lovers of wide-open spaces!
In teams of two, participants will have three days to navigate by map and compass a course of more than 160 km while kayaking, biking, trekking, adventure swimming, and completing rope challenges!
The Raid international Témiscamingue will begin on Friday afternoon with a Youth Raid. The 25 youth teams will be paired with 25 adult teams to start the race.
The race will be supplemented by a variety of events, beginning with a grand opening ceremony on Thursday evening and ending with a festive banquet on Sunday. Four days of activities for an exceptional Témiscamienne experience. This event will be held in the heart of the Anishinaabe territory, making it a showcase for Indigenous culture thanks to a close partnership with local First Nations communities.
Race or trek across a mix of on-trail and off-trail sections using a compass to guide you!
Competency with a map and compass is essential for a successful Raid Témiscamingue!
Mountain biking offers access to the best panoramic views of the region, as long as you’re ready and willing to carry the bike on your shoulders!
Canoeing is a traditional and typically Canadian activity that is an absolute must for Endurance Aventure raids.
Témiscamingue is home to navigable lakes and rivers that seem to stretch forever…
That’s right, at Endurance Aventure, we like to get wet! Swimming, regardless of the water temperature, will be a key part of the Raid Témiscamingue!
Participants will be amazed by the spectacular views—sometimes high, sometimes wide—as they tackle the rope challenges!
Raid Témiscamingue takes place in a wonderful natural setting!
“New this year: The Youth Raid will offer local teens a unique sporting experience on their home turf. The 25 teams of two youth aged 13 to 17 will need to show resilience and push past their limits! A classroom campaign will be launched in schools across the area to encourage participants and volunteers to come forward and to promote healthy lifestyle habits. Not only will the teens be encouraged to prepare for and compete in the race, they’ll also be involved in the overall Raid as participants, volunteers or supporters.“
Kathleen Bélanger-Julien, participant in last year’s Raid and native of Témiscamingue, will act as youth ambassador.
