We are very pleased to announce that we will have Icebreaker shirts again for Knee Knacker runners.
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!
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.
As a runner, what you experience is a fun, well organized event. But there’s a lot of work that has to be done before we can put up the Start and Finish lines for you to cross. For example, to hold the race we need approval from various municipal, regional, and provincial bodies, as well as private companies. In total, there are eight permits and we started applying for them back in January. Many thanks to all of them, and that’s just one of the many details that goes into the Knee Knacker!
