Horseback Riding

(All race details are subject to change as we fine tune)

Take careful aim and hit as close to the center of the target as you can!

You have five shots, and your runner is held in a waiting area for a set number of time. Each shot that hits the target reduces the runner's waiting time based on your accuracy!

Cast off into the water and paddle as hard as you can down the South Saskatchewan river in this difficult event. 

As a team with your adult, you must paddle downstream through the turbulence at the river bend, where you may get stuck, past the Cemetery, and make your way to the dock at East Village to deliver you backpacker safely to shore.


Hoist your pack onto your shoulder and get moving in one of the most demanding events in the relay. As the backpacker it is your job to get your 20 lbs pack downhill to the canoes where your team will ferry you down the river.

After your brief rest in the canoe as your two teammates paddle, you have to haul that same pack up the banks of the South Saskatchewan river to the horses. Quite the challenge!

Bring your trusty bike and helmet and give your team the lead they need in the cycling event - the finale and the longest portion of the Youth Relay.

Be prepared to really work those muscles as you peddle through gravel and  grass as you race all over the Batoche National Historic Site.

         (For this event you need to bring your own bicycle and helmet!)

Register your team now!

Hand off your baton to our horseback riding team! The rider will be selected at random based on the availability when you arrive.

They will then gallop across the river-lot course, covering acres of historic farmland until they reach the bicycles and deliver their precious cargo. 


​Start things by hitting the ground running in this test of speed and stamina! Out pace your opponents in this first part of the Youth Relay.

You will be jogging a full-tour of the historic site, through shade and sun, as you make your way to the archery range.
