The Hollyburn Chute section of the Baden Powell is in great shape this year. After inspecting it today, we can report that it’s basically snow free, save for a few short patches south of the Blue Gentian Lake trail junction. North of the junction, there’s still continuous snow about 60cm-90cm deep. And unlike last year when people were doing contortions through all the blowdowns, this year the area is free of downed trees. Let your training begin!
Baden Powell Trail condition, April 11, 2014 near the Blue Gentian Lake junction.
We’re very pleased to have Icebreaker merino t-shirts back again this year for all runners…
… trail runners love ‘em because they wick moisture away (keeping you cool and dry) and because they don’t smell or have ‘stink memory’ like synthetic fibres… do you know how many relationships this has saved in the past several years?!?!?!?!?!
Have a look-see at last year’s women’s and men’s t-shirts…
…which many considered to be the best ever in the 25 year history of the Kneeknacker… judge for yourself!!!
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,
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.
