Knee Knacker event summary press release

For Imme­di­ate Release

The 25th run­ning of the Knee Knack­er­ing North Shore Trail Run (“the Knee Knacker”) took place on Sat­ur­day, July 13, 2013, with ideal con­di­tions on the trail and in the air. This was in stark con­trast to the warm, muggy con­di­tions of 2012. The trail itself was free of snow and the recent warm, dry weather had firmed up most of the muddy patches left behind. The race was on! The only thing stand­ing in the way of the run­ners was 30 knarly miles along the trails of Vancouver’s North Shore moun­tains, with over 16,000 feet of ele­va­tion change.

For immediate release

West Van­cou­ver, British Colum­bia – The Knee Knack­er­ing North Shore Trail Run (the ‘Knee Knacker’), is at hand once again, and this year the race cel­e­brates its 25th run­ning. The event takes place on Sat­ur­day, July 13, 2013, start­ing near Horse­shoe Bay and ending at Panorama Park in Deep Cove. This year’s field is one of the deep­est ever, with some of the world’s top ultra-marathoners com­pet­ing on the 30-mile course.

The con­tenders for the men’s title promise some spec­tac­u­lar times. With near per­fect course con­di­tions, it’s likely that pre­vi­ous winner Adam Camp­bell (2010) and Gary Rob­bins, who recently broke the HURT 100, Diez Vista 50, and Chuck­anut course records will set the pace early.
