The Kingston to Ottawa 200 (K2O) race is an ultra endurance 200km marathon paddling race through a UNESCO World Heritage site. The race takes place on slow moving water and must be completed within 36 hours. All types of non-fixed paddle crafts are allowed in the race however, no crafts with sails or pedals are permitted. Examples of non-fixed paddle crafts are: canoes, kayaks, SUPs, voyageur canoes, surf skis, etc. Challenge the race as a soloist, in a team of 2 or more paddlers, or even as a relay to split up the distance. The K2O makes its mark as Ontario’s longest non-stop paddling marathon and the only race in the province to offer prize money. Expect an incredible journey, an incredible event, and an incredible challenge!
ForceFive Media has entered a team in the race and is also a major sponsor. Looking forward to it!

We are very pleased to be a sponsor of the 2015 Jock River Race happening on April 11th, 2015 this spring. This race on the Jock River has been held since 1985, except in years when the Jock River Whitewater Race was run on the lower Jock. It has been an annual event since 1996. The Upper Jock River Paddling Race takes place in the Ottawa area in the town of Richmond, covering up to 12.5km of the river. In the past few years there have been 85 – 140 canoes and kayaks participate, the majority being recreational boats with a few racing C1s and C2s. Included are Parent/Child and Family categories to encourage participation by young paddlers. More Information

We now offer state of the art website hosting on our own blade server setup with some exceptional features we were not able to offer before. They include:
- 24/7 Support with real time website monitoring (we will know there is an issue before you)
- Dedicated server for only our clients with incredible speed
- PLESK setup where we can update WordPress Plugins from a centralized location
- Overall just a much faster, better ,and more secure setup then we could offer in the past.
We will be sending out an email to all existing hosting clients as their site comes up for renewal to see if they would like to be moved to the new server. The cost is a little bit higher but the performance and support is well worth the upgrade in our opinion.
