|SCDSB high school students and staff had an absolute blast at the first annual Winter Outdoor Adventure Race on Friday, March 5, 2010 in Killarney!
March 7, 2010 -
It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day on Friday, March 5, 2010 when the high school students from the Sudbury Catholic Board arrived in Killarney for the first annual Winter Outdoor Adventure Race. Nine teams from St. Benedict, St. Charles College and Bishop Alexander Carter showed up at the Killarney Shebanoning Outdoor Environmental Education Centre (K.S.O.E.E.C.) ready to participate in the three part race consisting of a two kilometre run along a trail with a target shooting event (with hoops and snowballs), an orienteering exercise in the bush, as well as a controlled fire-burning activity in which the students had to bring a can of water to a full boil over their self-made fire. The teams were mostly in co-ed groups of three and had to stay together for all three legs of the race. In the end, when all of the points and penalties were tallied, a team from St. Benedict consisting of – Alex Catalano, Sebastian Diebel, Andrew Kendall, with a time of one hour, thirteen minutes and twenty-four seconds was the race champion. It was an absolutely amazing day for all of the students and staff who participated and because the day was such a huge success, the buzz for the next race, which is the Second Annual Spring Adventure Race, has already begun. This next race will be held on June 4, 2010 and will be open to teams from all four boards. Space is limited and teams will be registered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
