The Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR) began in 1974, as a joint venture between the American Concrete Institution and the University of Alberta. Since its inception, the GNCTR has challenged students to use creativity, skill, and innovation in the design and construction of a concrete toboggan. In the first week of February 2007, the University of Waterloo will compete in the 33rd annual Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race in Winnipeg, Manitoba.


The competition is evaluated on technical and non-technical aspects, including concrete mix, design, braking system design, technical exposure, and aesthetics. To win, the team must create a fast, innovative, and original design.
