The Elevation Series

Looking for adventure? MARK YOUR CALENDAR!

Adventure races are made for people looking for something other than just another boring race. These events are adrenaline packed, fun-filled, physically demanding and take place in the great Canadian outdoors! Each race can be completed in a team relay or solo. If you want to push your limits and have a hellufa good time then, mark your calendars.

Swagman will be out representing the Elevator Race on March 25th, and we challenge you to beat us!

About the Series

This series is extra special because 100% of the net proceeds are donated to a not for profit society that supports local youth – The  Youth Outdoor Recreation Society. (Y.O.R.S) provides affordable programs for mainstream and at-risk youth in the Okanagan to participate in outdoor recreation, education and leadership activities.  Community Support is very important to our company, we believe strongly that giving back to the community creates more opportunity and success for everyone, and where better to start then by exposing our kids to all the things we cherish about this valley.  There is no better classroom than the great outdoors.
