Unofficial Training Runs Start Wednesday April 2nd

With the gor­geous weather coming around, what better way to kick­start your train­ing (and meet lots of great trail­run­ners) than by attend­ing the unof­fi­cial train­ing runs.

Meet­ing place is the Cleve­land Dam park­ing lot in North Van­cou­ver, on the left hand side of Nancy Greene Way as you head towards Grouse Moun­tain. Meet­ing time is 5:15pm and runs start at 5:30pm sharp.

Spe­cial thanks to Clive Boness for leading/co-ordinating these runs for another year.

Hope to see you Wednesday,

Ten days to go, watch for updates and news

We’re just ten days until race day and there are lots of news and updates to come. Visit the site daily to see if we’ve got some­thing new to tell you (and we prob­a­bly do!). We’ll also be pol­ish­ing some of our exist­ing con­tent, like adding maps and links to make it easier for you to find infor­ma­tion. Finally, our website’s banner photos are now chang­ing every three days to build on the excite­ment of being in the home stretch of the 24th Knee Knacker race!

Prepar­ing the Ice­breaker run­ners shirts.

The logo is BACK!

Um, yes, this part of the website’s ren­o­va­tions took a while. But the main con­trac­tor and logo sup­plier are per­fec­tion­ists, and they couldn’t install just any logo. This par­tic­u­lar logo was care­fully chosen by them after sev­eral trips to a spe­cial logo foundry in Van­cou­ver. Many ver­sions were made but only this one, cast in a spe­cial black and white plas­ter, was deemed good enough to put over the front door. We hope you like it too.
