Please check your email. Some course setter notes were sent to you.
Please note we've made some changes to the race format to make this year's race snow-shoe only with a time limit of 2.5 hours.
Prepare to attack the tracks and hills by snowshoe! This is the 10th Anniversary of this race!
Stars W*A*R is included in the Adventure Racing Ontario Series
Although past events offered several race categories to register into we have simplified the options and have created a single race category: Stars W.A.R. Team Adventure Race. Teams will be composed of two racers from any age category.
There will be plenty of race strategy choices because racers will have a 2.5 hour time limit to find as many checkpoints as possible.

How does the race go down? Racers receive maps (with checkpoints identified) between 9 and 9.30 am, and have some time before the race starts to plan their route. The map will include a number of checkpoints and you will plan to locate as many as possible. The checkpoints will both be scattered throughout the terrain of the forest. Once the race starts, each team of two will find as many checkpoints as possible, returning before the end of the 2.5 hour time limit. Points are obtained based on the number of checkpoints found within the time limit. Team members MUST stay together for the whole race (max 25 metres apart)
Will there be prizes? Of course! We always have awesome shirts, and have prizes donated from a number of generous sponsors. First team on each category and top 3 in the categories where will be 10 or more teams
What are the age limits? Anyone who feels they can shuffle around the woods in pursuit of the checkpoints is encouraged to compete. We have a range of racers attend the event ranging from youth age groups to seniors... including national-level orienteers and competitive adventure racers all the way to ambitious families competing recreational.
How long is the race? This all depends on the intensity you race at and the route that your team selects. However, teams could cover anywhere from 5 to 20 km during the two and half hours in which they are competing!
Will there be age group and gender categories? Yes (open, co-ed, masters , juniors, family ). more details on registration page
