On behalf of the team at CTOMS Inc, we would like to give out the most sincere congratulations to our friends at 1 Canadian Field Ambulance for their accomplishments at this year’s 14th annual Edmonton Garrison Exercise Mountain Man competition held on September 1, 2011 in Hawrelak Park in Edmonton, AB.
More than 300 Edmonton and Shilo based soldiers proved their physical and mental fitness stamina as they endured a two part foot race of 31.6 km (19 mi) and 5.6 km (3.5 mi) with 15 kg (33 Pounds) rucksack strapped to their backs, a 3.2 km (2 mi) canoe portage and a 10 KM (6.2 mi) paddle along the North Saskatchewan River.
