Since its inception in 1974, the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race has grown to include universities and technical institutions from across Canada, the United States and Europe. Approximately 500 students representing 30 teams attend the event annually. Each year a different university organizes and hosts the event, alternating between Eastern and Western schools. This year’s competition will be hosted by the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. For more information on GNCTR 2017, please visit their official website here.
