 “Cold Oatmeal”

 

A ‘bucket lister’, this is a 3-day excursion of cycling, running, traversing, and stand-up paddling across and between the ruggedly stunning Vancouver Island and The Gulf Islands. Not a race, nor a tour, this is an excursion meant to push limits, expand horizons, and test your mettle with Olympic gold and Silver medal triathlete, Simon Whitfield. Nights spent in tents/sprinter van and meals prepared together in the field. Striking a balance between roughing it and being facilitated, the excursion is partially provisioned by a support vehicle. Gear and food can be provided for and the logistics preparations made; the adventure begins from the moment you are picked up at the airport and doesn’t stop until three days later. This package combines multi-discipline adventure and includes discussions on a wide-ranging list of topics such as high level performance, continued life learning, a love of books, ongoing philosophies, and more.

Size: 2-5 people

Level: Advanced

Locations: Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands

Availability: Year-round, but limited (maximum two per year)
