Get ready to train!

It’s 2010. The race is on July 10. And there are exactly ten train­ing runs before the big day. So are you and your shoes ready? Nah, didn’t think so. All the more reason to join this year’s first train­ing run on Sunday, May 2nd. Rod, Glenn, and Gilles will be this year’s train­ing run coor­di­na­tors, so listen up when they speak! Details about all of the train­ing runs are here.

Any Volunteers Out There?

Well it’s been a few weeks since the excite­ment of the lot­tery announce­ment and we’re set­tling into our post-Olympic rou­tines again.  Con­grats to all who were suc­cess­full with the lot­tery this year!  For the other hun­dred or so entrants who haven’t secured a spot in this year’s race, we would like you to con­sider a posi­tion as part of the vol­un­teer team!!! :)

What makes the Knee Knacker such an out­stand­ing race is the 1:1 ratio of vol­un­teers to racers!! For every racer out on course, you have a coun­ter­part vol­un­teer help­ing you along the 30 mi/50 km (almost) route!  Not only have you got one coun­ter­part, you’ve actu­ally got 200 vol­un­teers cheer­ing you on!!!  That’s amaz­ing!!  So if you’re already run­ning, we encour­age you to ask your family and friends to join an aid sta­tion, timing or mar­shalling crew to make this the best expe­ri­ence for every­one.  If this is the year you give back, please visit our vol­un­teer page and sign up.  I’m look­ing for­ward to hear­ing from you.
