Indian Arm Challenge Overview

What is it?

It’s a 32 km Paddlesport Challenge from Deep Cove to Granite Falls which is at the Northern part of the Indian Arm Provincial Park. You can challenge your friend, family, co-workers or yourself to complete the race solo…

OR

You can be a relay team !! One will paddle to Granite Falls and the other paddler will paddle back to Deep Cove. How will I get to Granite Falls ? or back to Deep Cove ? you ask… we will have boat transportation for you. We will transport the second paddler or paddlers of your team to Granite Falls then when you arrive you switch and we will take you back to the after party by boat.

Start looking for your teammate and challenge someone in your office or street or local watering hole to take the Indian Arm Challenge with you ūüôā

Don’t delay registering… “get outside” “get fit” “have fun”
