The Knee Knacker website is undergoing renovations. During the next few weeks you may see the website change multiple times. The content will stay the same but we’re improving the navigation, typography, and presentation, especially for mobile users. The last time we changed the website was in early 2012 which is, in Internet terms, ancient history. The site is “live” all the time, so we’ll do most of the construction late at night to minimize disruptions to you. Just watch out for the dust and overhanging wires!
The Hollyburn Chute section of the Baden Powell is in great shape this year. After inspecting it today, we can report that it’s basically snow free, save for a few short patches south of the Blue Gentian Lake trail junction. North of the junction, there’s still continuous snow about 60cm-90cm deep. And unlike last year when people were doing contortions through all the blowdowns, this year the area is free of downed trees. Let your training begin!
Several people have asked if the Knee Knacker is involved with the Baden Powell Memorial Connector project. We fully support the project’s goal to create a new section of trail to bypass Indian River Road, but the race is not officially involved with the project.

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!
