After a lively event on our Facebook group, the official runners were selected in the 2013 Knee Knacker lottery. The list of selected runners is posted here, while registrants not selected in the lottery are posted here. Congratulations to everyone selected for the race. For those not chosen, we send our regrets and hope you’ll consider volunteering to help your fellow runners cross that finish line.
At 8pm on Tuesday, March 5, we will start posting the 2013 lottery results on our Facebook Knee Knacker Group page. The results will be released in batches as we draw names, so grab some popcorn and hang out with your favourite mobile (or not so mobile) device. If you can’t join us during the postings, all the results will be posted a few hours afterwards on our results webpage.
The days are counting down to the 2013 entry deadline on February 28. You now have nine days left to register for this year’s lottery!
Registration for the 25th Knee Knacker race is now open. You have until February 28, 2013 to register. For all the details, go here.
Next week, we will be mailing registration refund cheques (minus the $10 administration fee) to everyone not picked in the lottery. Complete details on our policies for refunds and entry transfers are here.
Hello, fellow trail runners & welcome to the 24th running of the Knee Knackering North Shore Trail Run!
Planning is already underway, and I’m excited to be kicking off another ‘Knee Knacker Season’. I want to start by thanking our committee members (Enzo Federico, Julie Flynn, Rod Hatfull, Patricia Jensen, Tim Jones, Bev McKenna, Dennis Marchant, Glenn Pace, Jeff Trigg and Andrew Wong), volunteers, sponsors and runners who make this such a great event to be a part of. THANK YOU!
As our trail running community continues to grow and we see the sport of ultra-running getting more and more ‘press’, we recognize the impact that a run like the Knee Knacker can have, and we have some exciting ideas about how to evolve the run. I’ll share more of these ideas over the coming months, but for now the key info leading up to the lottery is below.
Mark your calendars! This year’s entry deadline is February 29, 2012. Entry info is available on our registration page. You can also check out the entry confirmation page to verify your registration. We already have more entrants than ever before at this time of year. Thank you for your continued support! Continue reading
