Skyler Blackie Fit to be a Hero Challenge

Due to extensive damage and poor conditions caused by hurricane Fiona, Victoria Park is currently unsafe to host a race. We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2022 Skyler Blackie Fit To Be a Hero Race.

We apologize for the disruption caused by this weather event, but safety remains of the utmost importance. We will be issuing refunds to all participants and appreciate your patience.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

In March of 2019, Truro lost an asset to our community and an extremely passionate firefighter, Skyler Blackie. To honour the late Skyler Blackie, it was decided that an obstacle race would be created in his memory, which encompassed combining his love of fitness, Victoria Park, and Truro.


ELITE CHALLENGE - You're an elite athlete if you're competing to win and race against the best of the best! Elite Racers will adhere strictly to the race rules and guidelines or risk disqualification. Racers should be prepared for challenging obstacles throughout the race as well as unexpected "Skyler Stops" for some extra burpees! 

OPEN CATEGORY - The open category is for everyone, period. All welcome here. Open category racers will get outside their comfort zone and test their limits. These racers will experience the amazing rush of the finish line without the added pressure of perfection.
