Three local teens from Saugeen District Secondary School (SDSS) are planning to take part in the 5th annual High School Adventure Challenge in May.

High school students from across the province of Ontario will bike, run and canoe their way over the grueling Canadian Shield wilderness course armed only with a map and compass as a guide.

The average estimated time to complete the course is five to six hours but the SDSS students hope to do it in much less time.  "No one knows the course until just before the race," explains Weichel,  "that way there is a level playing field."

Although no experience is necessary and you don't have to be elite athletes to take part, being fit is the key and these three local teens run, cross-country ski and bike on a regular basis throughout the year.

The event takes place in Huntsville and the entry fee is $425 for the team.  The fee, combined with transportation and accommodation, means that the teens are hoping to fundraise approximately $800 but only have a short time to do it.
