ClayStone Completes Adventure Race

This past weekend some members of Crandall University’s ClayStone program participated in a 36-hour non-stop event called “Race the Phantom”, where teams trek, mountain bike, and paddle an unmarked course, navigating using only a compass and a map with no outside help. The start and finish point was in Nackawic, NB.

By the time the event was over, the ClayStone crew had canoed 15 km, trekked 30 km, and mountain biked 105 km. “This event gave the team the opportunity to put into practice some of the skills that are learned in the ClayStone program,” shared Dr. Dale Stairs, Vice-President for Student Life and Transformation and Director of the ClayStone Certificate. “Map and compass navigation, paddling, teamwork, and hiking are all things that ClayStone focuses on.” Ultimately, the team battled a heavy thunderstorm and finished the race in ninth place. Team members included Lydia Bodechon (’26), Elijah Martin (’26), Izabella Falle (’25), and Dale Stairs (’94).

In the future, ClayStone would love to enter additional teams into this annual event!
