Race Across

Waterloo Region

25 kms / 50 kms / 100 kms

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives recently ranked Waterloo Region as the least safe place for women to live in Canada, and our local support services have a 140 person wait list. In response, we developed Race Across Waterloo Region, a multi-sport urban/rural adventure event designed to generate a dialogue around women's safety and to build a community of healing and empowerment. 

RAWR is kind of like a scavenger hunt combined with a wilderness triathlon. It's fun, adventurous, and a great way to have a big impact! 

event class: competitive and non-competitive

event date: June 13, 2020

number of participants: 140

fundraising beneficiary: the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Waterloo Region



Waterloo Region Crossing is a not-for-profit endurance event company. 

We coordinate events wherein citizens challenge themselves in extraordinary circumstances 

to raise awareness about the most pressing issues facing our community.


We work at the grassroots level, engaging with our fellow citizens and local organizations 

to build community with a common goal: to empower each other through understanding, 

setting an example as leaders in social compassion and environmental stewardship. 


We build proof-of-concept events that can be expanded, replicated, and built upon 

to broaden our impact with each successive year.  


The Maple Flask is awarded to one trekker each year who demonstrates an exceptional level of care, empathy, and kindness to their fellow trekkers.
In memory of our fellow trek crew member Duff Becker
