Didn’t get in to this year’s Défi Nepisiguit Challenge or maybe you’re interested in the idea of a 1 day adventure race?

The organizing committee of the Défi Nepisiguit Challenge brings you DNC.5! This new event will package all the adventure and excitement of the 2 day race into a single day, 8 hour format and will be held in and around the City of Bathurst.

The DNC.5 will be an unsupported style event. This means that all equipment will be provided by and transported by each individual team. The course will remain a secret until the morning of the event and teams will be provided designated equipment drop off points following the pre race check-in. Teams can be composed of 2, 3 or 4 and be single gender or co-ed.

The winning team will be determined by who is able to reach the most checkpoints in the least amount of time within the 8 hour time limit. Here’s the best part – the winning team will receive a free entry to DNC18 happening on October 6 & 7!!

Earlier Event: July 26
