The City of Bathurst presents the DÉFI NEPISIGUIT CHALLENGE.​

We missed you in 2020, but we are confident that we will be reunited in 2021 for the adventure of the year! Our plans to explore the Miramichi - Atlantic Canada's Great Outdoors - are still in place, and with a full extra year of scouting and planning, we’re pretty stoked about what we have in store.

In light of the current situation, we have decided to open registration on March 1, 2021 (Update: DNC2021 is officially sold out! You can send an email at info@definepisiguitchallenge.com to be on the waitlist). Many of our teams, who registered from the 2020 event, opted to defer to this year’s event, so a limited number of spots will be up for grabs.

A note to our out of province adventurers, in the event borders are still closed as of August 1, we will provide you the option for a no penalty opt out.

The DNC will be sure to test your mettle as you battle through two full days of trekking, mountain biking, paddling, and orienteering. 

In typical DNC fashion we've got a few surprises up our sleeves, and more details will be headed your way soon!
