He has been an avid mountain biker since the early 1990's; he is trained in river kayaking; mountaineering travel & safety; and navigation. Dean has backpacked throughout BC and the world including climbs on Chukung Tse at 5857m and Chulu Far East 6059m in Nepal.

Ms. Shawn Leclair, Co-Founder & Event Director:

Shawn loves running, mountain biking and traveling. In her pursuit to experience life and push her boundaries she has completed Test of Metal, 24 hours of Adrenalin, and Sea2Summit. Shawn has jumped out of a plane solo, para-glided off a 3000 metre mountain in Turkey, took up rock climbing and jumped off a cliff, all in the name of conquering her fear of heights.

She is a recreational athlete that was inspired by the exhilaration and determination she saw at the finish line when supporting friends. Her first adventure race in Fall 2003 was a 2 day stage event and she has gone on to complete several more races since then, even hitting the podium in an all women's category.

Shawn has a background in event management and communications and has organized successful runs, walks, galas, adventure races, conferences and more.
