Registration for KKNSTR 2014 is open!

Hello and Happy New Year!  Plan­ning for the 26th edi­tion of the Knee Knacker has started and reg­is­tra­tion for 2014 is now open at the Ultra­Signup web­site.  Please note the improved process — you will only be charged a $10 fee to enter the lot­tery and if your name is drawn, the remain­der of the entry fee will be charged at that time.  This reduces the work with refunds and we hope it works better for you too.  Note: the entry dead­line is Feb­ru­ary 28th, 11:59pm and the lot­tery draw will be live on FB on March 3rd.

I’m excited to wel­come back our return­ing com­mit­tee mem­bers this year and also a spe­cial wel­come to our newest member, Tom Craik.  Many of you will already know Tom through his involve­ment in our com­mu­nity and I’m thrilled that he has joined our team.  Our 2014 com­mit­tee is:  Tom Craik, Enzo Fed­erico, Julie Flynn, Patri­cia Jensen, Tim Jones, Mark Grist, Bev McKenna, Dennis Marchant, Wendy Mont­gomery, Glenn Pace, Jeff Trigg and Andrew Wong.

As we embark on a new year, it is hard not to smile at the energy, enthu­si­asm and care of our 200+ vol­un­teers.  We already have people who have reached out to offer their time and expe­ri­ence, and we have vol­un­teers who have come back for over 20 years!  Thank you to all of you who commit count­less hours. 

Over the coming weeks, we will con­tinue to post info on our site, FB page & twit­ter.  As always, please don’t hes­i­tate to reach out to me at any time.

Happy Train­ing & see you on the trails,

Kelsy Trigg
Race Director.
