To our trail run­ning community:

I want to take this oppor­tu­nity to sin­cerely thank our long time spon­sor, North Shore Ath­let­ics, for their sup­port over the years and to let our trail run­ning com­mu­nity know that the Knee Knacker and North Shore Ath­let­ics have decided to end this arrange­ment for the 2012 year.

As many of you know, North Shore Ath­let­ics has a strong trail run­ning series (Run the North Shore), many trail, road, and triathlon clin­ics, and a loyal cus­tomer following.

On behalf of the Knee Knacker com­mit­tee, I want to thank Keith and the team at NSA and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

Sin­cerely,

Kelsy Trigg.

The word hind­sight comes dis­tinctly to mind. Con­tinue read­ing
