The University of Waterloo Concrete Toboggan Team is a student design team that competes in The Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR), an annual competition that originated in 1974 and has grown to be the longest running engineering competition in Canada.
The goal of this competition is to design, build and race a toboggan that must: hold five students, have a concrete sliding surface, have a steering system, have a braking system, have a protective roll-cage, and be less than 300 pounds. The University of Waterloo Concrete Toboggan Team has long been successful at this competition, with an impressive five known past overall victories (1995, 1997, 1998, 2002 & 2008) as well as numerous runner up and special mention awards. This makes Waterloo the most successful university at GNCTR in the past 20 years.
