Fostering team spirit and healthy competition
The first ICEMAN challenge was held recently with members of 5 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group Canada (5 CMBG ) Valcartier, Quebec, demonstrating they can meet future challenges.
More than 400 members from the eight units of 5 CMBG attended the ICEMAN challenge which comprised: a 5.5-km walk with a load (13 kg); 8.2-km cross-country ski; 5-km snowshoe; 6-km run and then firing a weapon at a set target.
Many of these events are activities soldiers are called upon to do in their winter training.
