The first edition of the Montréal Ice Canoe Challenge promises plenty of excitement. On February 23, the Old Port of Montréal will host this electrifying event, part of the Circuit québécois de canot à glace.

The race is back in Montréal after an absence of more than 20 years. The Old Port is inviting the public to come and enjoy this typically Quebec extreme sport, and cheer on the brave athletes who will go head to head with winter. It promises to be an action-packed day. The Montréal Ice Canoe Challenge is the fifth in a series of six races in the Circuit québécois de canot à glace. The Montréal race at the Old Port is bound to be thrilling. Starting from the Montréal Yacht Club at the Clock Tower Quay, it consists of a loop between the Clock Tower Basin, Île Sainte-Hélène and locks no. 1 and 2 of the Lachine Canal. One advantage of the Montréal event is that it is close to shore, which will keep spectators in suspense throughout the race, and the strong Sainte-Marie current will force participants to give it their all.
