Race the Phantom has been around since 2007, that means he is getting pretty old and cranky. I am not saying that this year’s race course will be any more difficult than past years……no, I guess that is exactly what I am saying.
INSERT UPDATE HERE — The 36 hour part of RTP will be dropped for 2016. This means we are offering a 24 hour option only. This means a change in race fees (yes cheaper, see not all bad) and a change in the schedule. You will still get the full experience of the beautiful terrain that has been scouted and planned around for the past year, just in a shorter time frame. Please plan to stick around till Monday (since it is a holiday), the camping is beautiful and we will have beer. 🙂
For those of you who will be travelling to the Phantom from afar, you may plan your driving time to be approximately to the McAdam NB area. The actual race start location will be revealed much much closer to the actual race date. If you have any concerns, please email me with your location and I will give you an estimate of your travel time.

Accommodations – We are good for camping, just bring a tent (one per team if possible) and check in with race staff when you arrive at Spednic Lake Provincial Park.
Team of 2, 3 or 4
$175 per racer
Fees are non-refundable after 31 March 2016.
Teams – you may race as a team of two, three, four – coed or single gender – you can race as a team of 20 (contact me first)……we don’t care, just come out and race. That being said, the preference is a coed team of four which will put your team in the Premiere Division. All other teams are in the Open Division, not that there is anything wrong with that.
Prizes – there will be some (there always are) and they will be great thanks to our awesome sponsors
Boats – unfortunately we are unable to source sufficient boats this year so must bring your own. If this creates a problem for you, send me an email and I will help you source one
Camping – we will be providing camping accommodations (campsite), please one tent per team if possible, we will have our BIG ex-military tent available for mapping sessions in case it rains.
