Thank you and congratulations to all of you that were involved in the 2018 Test of Humanity race.  We are so proud of all of you!  Now that the dust (mud!) has settled we can tell you that through hard work from all the riders, pledgers, sponsors and volunteers we raised over $53,000 this year.  This is the second highest amount raised in the eight years of the race!.  To date the Test of Humanity has now raised $390,000 for Canadian Humanitarian’s projects in Ethiopia.  We would like to thank all of you for your amazing efforts!

The date for the next Test of Humanity mountain bike race in Summerland, BC will not be set until later in December.  This annual event has been designed for mountain bikers with beginner to expert abilities, and will be fun for the whole family, with individual categories and courses for all ages and abilities.  Please see Course & Race Info for details.

The intention of the race is to raise money for Canadian Humanitarian and provide assistance to the local South Okanagan Food Bank. All financial proceeds from the race will be used to support Canadian Humanitarian and its projects in Ethiopia.

Canadian Humanitarian is a non-religious, non-profit organization that provides orphaned and vulnerable children in Ethiopia with access to health care, education, vocational training and the basic necessities of life such as nutrition and shelter.  Please see Why the Race? page for more details.

The South Okanagan Food Bank is a local organization that provides monthly food hampers to those people requiring assistance. At present there are 9000 people in the South Okanagan that require support from the local food bank.

If racing is not your thing but you feel that this type of event is something you would like to be involved in, then please feel free to contact us by emailing and we would be happy to have you join our team of volunteers.

The Test of Humanity’s mission is:

  • To help break the cycle of poverty in Ethiopia by providing orphaned and vulnerable children with access to an education
  • To provide food assistance to those locally that cannot provide for themselves
  • To provide an exciting day of mountain bike racing for all ages and abilities

By racing in the Test of Humanity you will be playing a vital role in improving the lives of children in Ethiopia and in providing food assistance to those in need in our local community.  So please join us along with the legendary race announcer Steve King for a great day of racing, and know that you will actually be racing … build lives.

At no time during the process of designing and building the Test of Humanity race did we realize that the Test of Metal Inc was a trademarked name.  We wish to thank Test of Metal Inc. for generously permitting us to use the name Test of Humanity in connection with our non-profit event, and if for some reason the Test of Humanity ever becomes a for-profit event we will cease to use the Test of Humanity name.
