Race Details Level of difficulty: While the race will be physically challenging. It is not beyond the reach of those who are in reasonably good physical condition. We highly recommend a routine of training, well before the race that includes biking, jogging/running and canoeing. There will be a five minutes between each element to take a short break, eat a snack, and take a drink before heading out on the next leg of the race.
