What to Expect...when I register
When you register for Baycrest SEALFIT, you will receive a detailed Participant Toolkit. This holds all the basic information you will need to prepare for your Baycrest SEALFIT journey, including gear information, fundraising information, and information about the event. You will also be able to set up your Participant Centre on our website, through which you will be able to keep track of your donations, donors, and fellow participants as well as reach out to your email network.
What to Expect...when I’m training
Baycrest SEALFIT participants are expected to prepare significantly for their event. All participants will receive their Participant Toolkit, which includes detailed training information and suggestions, as well as an 8 weeks to SEALFIT book to follow as your training guide.
In addition to individual training, participants will have access to monthly training events. These events are designed to prepare you physically and mentally for the Baycrest SEALFIT challenge. You’ll meet other participants, become a team, and develop camaraderie - all of which are integral to your success on event day.
In addition to training, participants will have to fundraise their minimum fundraising amount by August 5, 2020. Minimum amounts vary based on length of event and on registration type. Fundraising tips and resources can be found in your Participant Toolkit and on our website!
What to Expect...at the event
Shhhh….it’s a secret! Events will take place in an undisclosed location 1 hour from Toronto. Participants will receive more detailed event location information once they hit their fundraising minimums one week before the event.

I can really push past my mental limits while helping other people. I didn’t think I’d be able to encourage and motivate while still feeling the pain myself.
The mental game is key. You just gotta keep in the game and persevere. Fall down 7, get up 8.
The most challenging aspect was just battling with myself. My left side from the stroke that I had…the endurance is not as good as it could be so often times that causes me challenges so I just had to push through that and push through that, and I was fortunate that everyone here works as a team. The seals work as a team. So I learned a lot about teamwork which is a very valuable lesson.
