Our goal

To help design and construct a concrete toboggan and compete in the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race.


Help us cross the finish line first!

Who we are

We are a team of dynamic, hard-working Concordia students preparing to compete in the 2023 edition of the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR), to be held in Kelowna this year. The team is composed of undergraduate students from varying disciplines including civil, building, mechanical, aerospace, electrical and software engineering.

The competition

We will represent Concordia at the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR), the largest and longest running Canadian undergraduate engineering competition.

For this contest, we must design and manufacture a toboggan that carries five passengers and includes concrete skis, a structural frame, a braking system and a steering system. 

The last GNCTR that happened in person was in 2020 at the University of Toronto where we won 2nd place overall! We also placed well in a variety of other categories including 1st place for Best Team Spirit, 2nd place for Toboggan Design and 2nd place for Best Performing Toboggan.

Why we need your help

Your donations will help us buy materials required for the construction of the toboggan and our technical presentation display. Your contributions will also help cover the costs of shipping the toboggan to and from Kelowna, registration fees, and hotel and flight expenses for our team members. 

This year we hope to bring 25 people to the competition to represent Concordia and provide students with the invaluable opportunity of professional development, and an extra-curricular atmosphere that fosters cooperation and school spirit.
