About the Fox Challenge

What is the Fox 🦊 Challenge?
It is an untimed race, organized by and for First Nations, where the participants try to become Foxes!

Through, to, walk, run, or snowshoe the distance of 2km. The Foxes are then rewarded with a medal one of a kind and with the mention of the Fox in all the indigenous languages of Quebec.

Already a Fox?
It is precisely when you reach the title of Fox that the challenge becomes all the more interesting! Once the challenge is 2km realized, you have the opportunity to move on to the next challenge. To this day, 4km and 6km challenges are available, and others will be added over time.
