Muskoka River X Coureur des Bois

September 13, 2019 - September 15, 2019

Paddling on the Muskoka River

The Coureur des Bois is back! The River X Crew first hosted this expansion course to the Muskoka River X Classic in 2015 and 2016.  After a 2-year absence and at the request of our Alumni we will again host this epic race. Building on the heritage of the canal expeditions of the 1800’s, the Coureur des Bois will challenge even the most experienced expedition and marathon paddlers. Teams travel along the heritage routes of the Algonquin Peoples and early explorers as they traverse Algonquin Park east to west from Whitney to Oxtongue Lake. Using only the supplies that were carried teams will overnight in a wilderness camping setting at Oxtongue before merging with the Muskoka River X Classic B-Side for a second full day of paddle racing. 223km. 39 portages. 48 hours or less. No resupplies. No support. Navigation with only map and compass. Flat-water. Up-river. Down-river. Marshlands and swamp. A true Canadian back-country expedition race. Are you tough enough to be called a Coureur des Bois? Here’s your chance to find out….
