The Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race 2015 was hosted by the University of British Columbia Okanagan in Kelowna, B.C.  Universities from across the country made their way to the West Coast for the competition from January 21-25, 2015.

The team had a great time and wanted to thank everyone who supported our journey!  We were fortunate enought to win “Best Braking Distance” and the Dufferin award for “Most Sustainable Concrete Toboggan.”  We also placed third in “Toboggan Performance” and “Team Costumes.”

Here are some photos from this year’s competition hosted by UBC-Okanagan in Kelowna.
