Emergency Services & Canadian Forces Challenge Cup
What is the Emergency Services & Canadian Forces Challenge Cup?
Working as a team, precision, strength and determination are all things that come to mind when you think of emergency services and our Canadian Armed Forces. Will the hours of training and drilling to perform as a single unit transfer onto to water where everyone is in sync flying across the water? Our Emergency Services & Canadian Armed Forces Challenge Cup gives you the chance to race against other units, divisions and departments where the best of the best will compete to cross the finish line first.
Past participants in the Emergency Services & Canadian Forces Challenge Cup have represented various components of the Canadian Armed Forces, police services and associations as well as fire services and associations.
Challenge Cup teams must have a minimum of 9 people racing from the designated cup category. For example, if you are entering the High Tech Challenge your team must have a minimum of 9 paddlers who are employed with the High Tech organization the team represents. Challenge Cups require a minimum of 3 teams so issue a challenge to your competition and get ready to beat them on the water!
