2019 IS A PILOT EVENT. SCALED PUBLIC EVENT LAUNCHES IN 2020.

This summer, Waterloo Region Crossing crew will test run a new multi-sport adventure race. The event will feature four different course lengths, ranging from 35-100kms, exploring Waterloo Region in a way that's never been done before. Follow the teams with their GPS tracking system as they journey across our community, raising awareness about women's safety, encouraging more women to participate in adventure sport, and building a dialogue of empowerment and healing. 

This event is in support of the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Waterloo Region, and is being built in direct response to the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives' recent report ranking Waterloo Region as the least safe metropolitan area for women to live in Canada.
