X-Warrior Challenge announced yesterday that they will be staging a second event in Edmonton, Alberta Canada this year, following the success of the Calgary Stadium Event earlier in May. X also hinted at a different type of event to their Stadium Sprint style race suggesting that this could be the ‘Wild’ variant of the X-Warrior – taking place in an outdoor setting of some kind. Obstacle racers in Edmonton and Northern Alberta will be very happy to hear this announcement, especially since Spartan Race Canada and other OCR events have withdrawn from the city and the province as a whole this year.
I spoke to Race Director Darcy Chalifoux:
Alberta has such an amazing OCR community, it has been our goal to be able to bring X Warrior to the Edmonton Area. We couldn’t be more excited with the venue and partnerships we have secured. On a personal note, as I’m originally from Edmonton I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring this home.
A venue is yet to be announced and registration isn’t yet open for the Edmonton race, but you can head over to X-Warrior challenge on Facebook to stay informed on when and where this event will be taking place.
