Innovating the concept of sport and leisure tourism, it promotes new trends in tourism and achieves the goal of sport for all.

    The festival held last year was a great success, winning high acclaim from different sectors. It also proved that tourism and sports could work together side by side perfectly. More importantly, it also allowed participants to enjoy sport, leisure activities, sightseeing, culture, and industry together. In this year’s festival, indigenous elements were added, and Pawan Nawi (Mr. Lin Yuan-chieh), the actor Seediq Bale, was invited as the endorser. He communicated the spirit of “Never Stop” of the Seediq people. This spirit symbolized the spirit of sport in “challenging your own limit courageously and pursue for the goals in front.”

    In the activities, there was a 2.2km innovative race, 10km run, and 17.6km relay. In this year, a 21km cross-country run was added. As to the water sports, there was a professional canoe challenge category, general category for beginning canoers, and leisure and fun category for parents and children. In addition, there was a DIY canoe race with boats made from bamboo cylinders, plastic recycling buckets, robes and more. The game was a lot of fun.
