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.

Ever wonder what Santa’s Elves do in their off season?… and how they pass the summer? Well they make themselves moderately useful by keeping the North Shore trails clear of
downed trees and branches! Have a look-see at some of their handiwork from near Nelson Creek, on the initial section of the Knee Knacker route
Just over a week away from Race Day and there are some surprises on the Baden Powell Trail which we’re working on:
- A big tree is down on the trail about 20 minutes from the start line, a few minutes past the footbridge. We’re hoping to remove it tomorrow.
- There is major construction on the trail near Glenmore Drive (West Van). We’re working with BC Hydro and the District of West Vancouver to make sure it’s safe for you on race day.
Many thanks to everyone for telling us about these problems!
This is the twentieth year of Knee Knacker Trail Maintenance Day. A new boardwalk was built and trail drainage was improved on the Baden Powell Trail east of Hyannis Drive. Check out the photos from:
