Description

Pain In The ASSiniboine! (PITA)

A great city/ urban event that combines some of the best "scenic cycling" our city has to offer with a "pleasurable paddle" on the Assiniboine.This urban off-road adventure will surely get you ready for The Swamp Donkey in September!

Explore Winnipeg from a different perspective! Pain in the ASSiniboine is an exciting urban race! Racers cycle river trails, single track, park roads and the famous Trans Canada Trail to reach beautiful Beaudry Park in Headingly, Manitoba. Hop into your canoe or kayak and paddle the swift moving Assiniboine River past some of Winnipeg's most elegant estates until you reach the Forks - Winnipeg's most popular landmark.

Beginning at the Forks Market you will cycle 32 km over a series of river trails, single track, paved roads and limestone trail until you reach Beaudry Park in Headingly, Manitoba. From Beaudry Park, racers will paddle 32 km by canoe (teams) or kayak (solo) down river to the finish line at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.

Racers (solo or team) must have minimum 1 support crew member to transport and pick up equipment from the transition zone at Beaudry Park.
