27. Wapiti

Tom & Jim

“To inspire, to motivate and to encourage people to take a leap and step out of their own comfort zones”

Both having rather significant military and fitness careers, this team are no strangers to hardship in the wilderness.  Training all over the world from Africa to Afghanistan and many endurance races in between – one of them has even hiked the full length of New Zealand – about the same distance as the Yukon 1000 race!

Their team name is a nod to the historical roots of Canada and the heritage of the First Nation people who were here, hunting, and naming animals long before the European settlers arrived. Wapiti is (one of) the original names for the animal(deer).
