A 16-member team from RMC participated in the 2 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group (2 CMBG) Iron Warrior race at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa on Sept 6. The Iron Warrior is an annual @CANArmy event that challenges soldiers both physically and mentally over a 50km course. The RMC team was invited to participate and took home 1st place, finishing three hours ahead of the competition, with a time of 33:20:47. The team time is calculated by adding the 5 best times posted by the team. RMC also had 5 top 15 individual finishes!
The race is composed of a 32km rucksack march, followed by a 4.5km canoe portage, an 8km canoe on the Ottawa river, and finally a 5.5km sprint to the finish with a 40 pound rucksack. The race was hosted annually by @2CMBGHqSigsSqn at CFB Petawawa.
