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.
Believe it or not, planning for Knee Knacker 2012 starts very soon for the Race Committee. We like to plan early so that all you runners and volunteers can relax on race day (July 14). The 2012 race entry deadline is February 29 and you can check out all the other important dates here.
