There’s more nervousness and excitement with tonight’s race lottery results than the Oscar’s Best Picture category. But how can you keep up with the results? First, gather your family and friends. These are the folks who–win or lose–you’ll need for support. Second, grab some snacks and your favourite beverage. (Add beverages as required.) Third, starting at 8pm, huddle around your computer or mobile device where you can:
- Go to our Facebook community page to see the live results, or
- If you’re not on Facebook (gasp!), visit our Lottery Results page and click your browser’s refresh button periodically to display the latest results.
Good luck to everyone!
When I think of Tim, my heart is filled with immense gratitude. Tim’s legacy is already being seen in the outpouring of love and respect from people whose lives he touched with his generosity, skill, leadership and care. On behalf of the Knee Knacker community, our thoughts go out to Tim’s family, his friends and North Shore Rescue.
North Shore Rescue, under Tim’s leadership, has been an integral part of Knee Knacker for over 15 years. Runner safety is our utmost concern and having Tim’s expertise on our organizing committee was a source of pride for us. Every year, Tim and his amazing crew met us at the crack of dawn to begin the exciting journey of getting 200+ runners safely over 30 miles to the finish line. As Race Director, I took great comfort in knowing we were as prepared as we could be, and as a runner, I felt safe throughout the day.
At Knee Knacker 2012, Tim was planning on stopping by the evening banquet to accept our thanks. At 8:03pm, we received a text saying, “Curtis & Bruce on the way… guess where I am” with a photo from within the rescue helicopter with a view of the Lions. Tim had spent the whole day with his team and our race, and didn’t miss a beat when he was called out.
Thank you Tim. We miss you.
Tim Jones: husband, father, friend, colleague, leader. Giving back immeasurably with the BC Ambulance Service and North Shore Rescue.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tim Jones. According to North Shore Rescue, Tim was returning from the team’s Seymour cabin when he suffered a medical emergency. Despite the efforts of many, he passed away tonight. We have lost a good friend.
Our thoughts and condolences to his family, friends, and North Shore Rescue.
Before the year ends in mere hours, we’re releasing the long awaited helicopter footage of this year’s race around Eagle Bluffs and Black Mountain. We delayed releasing it because we originally wanted to use the videos as part of a bigger project, but that became more complex and time consuming than expected. So what you’ll see instead are the raw, unedited helicopter videos and pre-race interviews with several race participants.
There are three videos:
- Video 1: Pre-race interviews (Kelsy, Marianne, Ron) and the race start.
- Video 2: Aerial footage of runners going to Cypress Bowl aid station (00:00 — 02:48) and on-the-ground coverage at Cypress Bowl aid station (02:48 onwards).
- Video 3: Aerial footage of the race at Eagle Bluffs and Black Mountain.
We would like to acknowledge and thank:
North Shore Rescue
