Take the 2021 Challenge!

The Coureurs des Bois Challenge organizes an annual obstacle course in the Lavigne Natural Park in Bourget. Due to the pandemic, the event has been completely revised. In 2020, more than 1,400 participants followed the paths of the Lavigne Natural Park. We hope you can participate and enjoy this revised formula.

  • One-way trails (3 km or 5 km) in the Lavigne Natural Park , 3480 Marcil Rd, Bourget, Ontario.
  • The whole month of September. You choose the date and time you want to participate. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED.
  • Several challenges to overcome along the course (eg jumping jacks) plus a few natural obstacles.
  • Accessible to people of all ages and all fitness levels.

A virtual version is available for those who live outside the region. Enjoy the Challenge!
