Volunteer trail work days in August and September

Now that the 2012 race reg­is­tra­tion has opened up, here’s your chance to ful­fill your vol­un­teer hours months in advance. The snow on Black Mt. is (mostly) gone now, so the Black Mt. Trail Day is planned for the end of August. The exact date is still TBA but we’ll post it as soon as we know. If you’re inter­ested in the Black Mt. Trail Day, con­tact Andrew (Trail Day Coor­di­na­tor) through the Con­tact Form.  Also, BC Parks has vol­un­teer trail main­te­nance days planned for the Stawa­mus Chief trail in Squamish at the end of Sep­tem­ber. If you’re inter­ested in the BC Parks Stawa­mus Chief trail days, email Katy.Chambers@gov.bc.ca to add your name to their vol­un­teer list.

Knee Knacker Donates $4,400 to North Shore Search and Rescue

We’re excited to announce that this year’s Knee Knacker dona­tion to North Shore Search and Rescue is $4,400. This is the largest amount we’ve ever raised and it includes the pur­chase of almost $400 in pho­tographs from our Smug­Mug site. The vol­un­teers at the North Shore Search and Rescue team do an incred­i­ble job help­ing people in dis­tress so we’d like to thank you, the Knee Knacker com­mu­nity, for your gen­eros­ity and par­tic­i­pa­tion in the race which made the dona­tion possible.

We’re not sleeping, just resting our eyelids.

It’s been a month since race day and while things are fairly quiet in the Knee Knacker office, the trail run­ning com­mu­nity con­tin­ues to hum along. So through­out the rest of this year, we’ll post inter­est­ing trail-running news that we find for you. And if you have some­thing of inter­est to share, you can email it to us or post it on our Face­book com­mu­nity page.
