Not up to par for such an awesome course. I loved the old shirts with the full elevation map on the back. It's a conversation starter. I would go back to that shirt if I had the choice (maybe change colours / sponsors each year).਀ Overall, great day, FANTASTIC volunteers at the aid stations, good marshalling, crazily good course marking. Great experience and would highly recommend it to anybody and hope to do it again.਀ Thanks to the whole team who put it together.਀ Troy
4Jul 12, 2010 5:04 AMIt was a really great experience. Aid station support was excellent - well spaced with good supplies & really helpful, friendly volunteers. Thankyou!
5Jul 12, 2010 5:05 AMNot sure about this.਀ More outhouses at the start would be nice, but I heard that the company didn't deliver the correct amount.
6Jul 12, 2010 5:23 AMIt was all good!
7Jul 12, 2010 5:23 AMice at aid stations and colder drinks especially if it is hot.Also sponges at the finish......If the weather is cool or raining [N/A] but if cold or raining then soup broth.
8Jul 12, 2010 5:32 AMIt's damn near perfect as is!਀ Great to see e-load (instead of gatorade) at the aid stations. Also great to see real Coke (instead of cheap cola) at the aid stations. My one minuscule request is that the Coke be flat, lest it cause my water bottle to explode! (But that's such a minor point in what is such a classy and well run event.)
9Jul 12, 2010 5:32 AMOne minor point made above, but overall everything was fantastic.
10Jul 12, 2010 5:34 AMMore porta potties at the start line although I know 5 were ordered and only 1 showed up. I love the Knee Knacker and it keeps getting better every year even though my times don't :O)
11Jul 12, 2010 5:35 AMPlease check previous comments
12Jul 12, 2010 5:42 AMI was disappointed with the shirt this year. Why was the logo on the front changed this year? The elevation profile on the back was always such a cool feature too.਀ Not sure if it is feasible but having finishing medals that are replicas of the Baden Powell trail markers would be a unique and memorable souvenir.
13Jul 12, 2010 5:43 AMIt's a great race, well organised, supportive volunteers now if only you could do something about the heat!਀ thanks yet again, next year it's my turn to volunteer and try the lottery in 2012 if the legs are still up to it.
14Jul 12, 2010 5:45 AMMake sure there are more washrooms at the start.
15Jul 12, 2010 5:48 AMHave more flagging on the course so first timers don't have to waste time and energy wondering if the've gone the wrong way or not.
16Jul 12, 2010 5:55 AMYou could do with less AS.
17Jul 12, 2010 6:05 AMI can't imagine how to make it any better. Hope the one runner injured at the end is ok. Thank you to everyone and kudos to the RD.
18Jul 12, 2010 6:05 AMThe 2011 KK could be improved a little with more electrolytes at aid stations (especially if it is hot) and better food at the banquet. But, really, overall it is an awesome race already. Please protect the supportive, community oriented atmosphere that not only celebrates the elite atheletes, but also celebrates each individual participant who has worked so hard to be there. Thanks one and all!!!
19Jul 12, 2010 6:06 AMthis is a well oiled machine. if i had to make a gripe, i would say the shirt was not to my liking. it is heavy and baggy. also, get enzo out of the infirmary. i was looking forward to seeing him at the finish line (although kelsey did a GREAT job and she is a whole lot better looking!!)
20Jul 12, 2010 6:09 AM1. Eliminate the lottery...have a reserve list...first come first in...you are ticking a lot of average people off and those who are keen to promote your event. You could open it up to more international runners this way! It is a great trail event stuck in the old way of being.Have a better sound system at the banquet...good concept but we could not hear you in the facility. Volunteers need to have some training (how to fill a water bottle and how long to the next aid station.
21Jul 12, 2010 6:09 AMi thought it was ran perfectly on my end. being form out of town the shuttles were a great idea. the trail was well marked, overkill on marking in that hard of a race really helps out when your not always looking up, and the direction arrows on the ground were also a good idea.਀琀栀攀 戀椀最最攀猀琀 椀洀瀀爀漀瘀攀洀攀渀琀 眀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 瀀椀挀欀椀渀最 洀礀 渀愀洀攀 愀最愀椀渀 渀攀砀琀 礀攀愀爀℀℀ 䠀䄀℀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㈀㈀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㘀㨀㄀  䄀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀吀栀椀猀 眀愀猀 洀礀 ㄀猀琀 琀椀洀攀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 眀栀攀渀 䤀 眀愀猀 搀漀椀渀最 洀礀 琀爀愀椀渀椀渀最 爀甀渀猀 䤀 昀漀甀渀搀 琀栀愀琀 琀栀攀爀攀 挀漀甀氀搀 栀愀瘀攀 戀攀攀渀 愀 氀漀琀 洀漀爀攀 ☀焀甀漀琀㬀䈀倀☀焀甀漀琀㬀 琀爀椀愀渀最甀氀愀爀 洀愀爀欀攀爀猀 琀漀 栀攀氀瀀 漀甀琀⸀ 匀漀洀攀 眀攀爀攀 瘀攀爀礀 昀愀搀攀搀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 琀栀攀爀攀 眀攀爀攀 愀爀攀愀猀 眀栀攀爀攀 椀琀 眀愀猀 愀 眀栀椀氀攀 戀攀昀漀爀攀 礀漀甀 昀漀甀渀搀 漀渀攀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 椀琀 洀愀搀攀 礀漀甀 焀甀攀猀琀椀漀渀 椀昀 礀漀甀 眀攀爀攀 漀渀 琀栀攀 爀椀最栀琀 琀爀愀椀氀 漀爀 渀漀琀⸀ All in all it was an incredible experience, I'm very proud to say that I have done it, and thanks to you organizers for a fantastic job.
23Jul 12, 2010 6:14 AMIf my training partner could have been entered, it would have really helped. Perhaps some type of group draw could be done so that people from one area who train together can travel to/from the race and train together. ਀ For myself, and I am sure for many others, the social aspects of trail running are important, and a lottery system completely ignores that aspect of things. If those who I run with, especially my partner, don't get entered, it makes training and traveling just that much more difficult.

26Jul 12, 2010 6:29 AMI think the whole experience was excellent. I think the organizers and Volunteers have done an excellent job and should be proud of this "incredible event". I say event, instead of race, because the buildup and help goes on for 6 months, the race is 10hrs. Everyone should be congratulated for doing an excellent job.਀吀栀愀渀欀礀漀甀℀℀ (the flag/markers were not as good on the last 3/4)
27Jul 12, 2010 7:00 AMThe shirts could use a little more attention to design. There are some great contemporary artists that you can access at 99designs.com who can design a logo for a very low price. I'm also a not a very big fan of excessive advertising on race shirts. From a design standpoint, it looks bad. From a social standpoint, you feel less inclined to wear the shirt because you don't want to be a walking billboard. I'm very appreciative and supportive of the sponsors, but would much rather prefer to see it done in a more tactful way. ਀ For example, you can strategically take photos of the runners with an advertisement integrated. You can take photos of runners as they drink from "eload" cups at the aid stations. Have photos of a volunteer with a "Hammer" shirt hold out "Hammer" gel packs for a runners as they approach an aid station.਀ I'd much rather have a clean and beautifully designed Knee Knacker shirt that sends one simple message: "I did the Knee Knacker, and it's a tough race". Advertisements dilute the message.
28Jul 12, 2010 7:11 AMIt is great. I like it low key but high energy.
29Jul 12, 2010 12:55 PMThere seemed to be a lot of empty tables at the banquet. Out of town people often have to leave early Previous banquet changes were good i.e. serving food sooner. This year the awards finished sooner (good because it is a long day) Another idea might be an earlier start to the awards and banquet
30Jul 12, 2010 1:56 PMI think you guys / gals did an outstanding job I don't know what else you could do to improve it.਀ See you next year if not as a runner I will volunteer and try to give someone else the great experience I received.
31Jul 12, 2010 2:03 PMThank you to the race committee!!! Everything was wonderful!
32Jul 12, 2010 2:26 PMNo improvements are required. It was a very well-organized race, with great volunteer support, great post-race facilities (particularly the massage therapy!) and an excellent post-race banquet.
33Jul 12, 2010 2:35 PMI really like the shirts from previous years with the image of the elevation profile.਀䤀琀 眀漀甀氀搀 栀愀瘀攀 戀攀攀渀 渀椀挀攀 椀昀 琀栀攀 猀栀椀爀琀 眀愀猀 漀昀 戀攀琀琀攀爀 焀甀愀氀椀琀礀⸀ I think it would be really unique if the finishing medals were BP trail marker replicas.

38Jul 12, 2010 3:47 PM2010 exceeded my expectations so I could not see where it needs to be improved.
39Jul 12, 2010 4:04 PMWould love to see the Elevation profile on the T-shirt!! Other than that the KK is a fantastic race.
40Jul 12, 2010 4:04 PMRepeat 2010. This was the best organized event I've participated in.
41Jul 12, 2010 4:14 PMCould you consider having a waiting list of runners who did not get in the lottery and if maximum number is not reached on race week (e.g. drop outs etc) then some of these runners are allowed in ?
42Jul 12, 2010 4:22 PMIf possible, I think you should let more people enter...even if you have to pass on traditions like the banquet.
43Jul 12, 2010 4:22 PMI can't think of anything!
44Jul 12, 2010 4:52 PMwould it be possible to have a bit more cohesiveness in the group training runs for safety? perhaps a sign in sheet so that you know that someone will know if you are lost.
45Jul 12, 2010 5:00 PMI think the race price is good value but I was traveling from Seattle and the mandatory pickup on Friday meant that I had to stay overnight so I think it would be great if we could get a group or event rate at local accomodation. Heather McDonald was able to do this for the Dirty Duo event that I did in March and it was a few dollars of the total price but still worth it.
46Jul 12, 2010 5:17 PMThe only aspect that I think could be improved is the tendency for runners to become isolated on the training runs. Everyone tends to spread out and go at their own pace. For runners who do not know the course well, this can be a problem. It might be useful to place greater emphasis on pacing groups for the training runs and the importance of staying with your pacing group. I got lost on Hollyburn, while it was snowing during an early training run, and this could have turned into a very bad situation. If training groups stayed together, these risks would be minimized.
47Jul 12, 2010 5:43 PMI like to keep moving through an aid station and eat/drink - as such some garbage bins 100-200m past an aid station would be good.਀圀栀攀渀 挀漀洀椀渀最 椀渀琀漀 琀栀攀 戀愀渀焀甀攀琀 椀昀 琀栀攀 爀甀渀渀攀爀猀 挀漀甀氀搀 椀渀搀椀挀愀琀攀 琀栀攀礀 愀爀攀 瀀爀攀猀攀渀琀 愀渀搀 眀愀渀琀 琀漀 瀀椀挀欀 甀瀀 琀栀攀椀爀 挀攀爀琀椀昀椀挀愀琀攀 琀栀愀琀 渀椀最栀琀 椀琀 眀漀甀氀搀 猀瀀攀攀搀 甀瀀 琀栀攀 瀀爀漀挀攀猀猀 愀猀 椀琀 猀攀攀洀攀搀 琀栀攀爀攀 眀攀爀攀 焀甀椀琀攀 愀 氀漀琀 漀昀 挀攀爀琀椀昀椀挀愀琀攀猀 渀漀琀 瀀椀挀欀攀搀 甀瀀⸀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㐀㠀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㔀㨀㐀㤀 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀一漀渀攀 愀琀 琀栀椀猀 琀椀洀攀⸀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㐀㤀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㔀㨀㐀㤀 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀䤀 最漀琀 洀漀猀琀 漀昀 椀琀 瀀爀攀瘀椀漀甀猀氀礀⸀ 䨀甀猀琀 氀椀琀琀氀攀 琀眀攀愀欀猀⸀ 吀栀攀 瀀爀漀戀氀攀洀猀 䤀 栀愀瘀攀 栀愀搀 眀椀琀栀 琀栀攀 挀漀甀爀猀攀 漀渀 瀀爀攀瘀椀漀甀猀 礀攀愀爀猀 栀愀瘀攀 愀氀氀 戀攀攀渀 椀爀漀渀攀搀 漀甀琀⸀ 吀栀攀爀攀 愀爀攀 猀漀洀攀 椀洀瀀漀爀琀愀渀琀 洀愀爀猀栀愀氀氀椀渀最 瀀漀椀渀琀猀Ⰰ 氀椀欀攀 琀栀攀 搀攀洀漀 昀漀爀攀猀琀 昀漀爀 琀栀愀琀 栀愀爀搀 爀椀最栀琀 琀甀爀渀 ⴀ 瘀攀爀礀 椀洀瀀漀爀琀愀渀琀⸀ 䤀 挀漀甀氀搀 栀愀瘀攀 甀猀攀搀 漀渀攀 洀漀爀攀 眀栀攀爀攀 䤀 洀攀渀琀椀漀渀攀搀Ⰰ 眀栀攀渀 挀氀椀洀戀椀渀最 愀渀搀 琀椀爀攀搀 椀渀 琀栀攀 氀愀猀琀 栀愀氀昀Ⰰ 椀琀 椀猀 攀愀猀礀 琀漀 氀漀漀欀 愀琀 琀栀攀 猀栀漀攀猀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 猀攀攀椀渀最 愀 爀攀搀 昀氀愀最 戀攀氀漀眀 愀渀搀 爀攀搀 猀焀甀愀爀攀猀 漀渀 琀栀攀 琀爀攀攀猀Ⰰ 椀琀 氀漀漀欀攀搀 氀椀欀攀 琀栀攀 挀漀甀爀猀攀⸀ 圀䤀琀栀 琀栀攀 猀甀渀 椀琀 眀愀猀 栀愀爀搀 琀漀 猀攀攀 琀栀攀爀攀 眀愀猀 渀漀 戀氀愀挀欀 猀琀爀椀瀀 漀渀 琀栀攀 琀愀瀀攀⸀ 䴀愀爀猀栀愀氀氀椀渀最 渀攀愀爀 琀栀攀 最爀椀渀搀 椀猀 瘀攀爀礀 椀洀瀀漀爀琀愀渀琀 愀渀搀 琀栀攀爀攀 眀攀爀攀 愀洀瀀氀攀Ⰰ 攀猀瀀攀挀椀愀氀氀礀 眀栀攀爀攀 椀琀 琀甀爀渀猀 攀愀猀琀 漀昀 琀栀攀 最爀椀渀搀⸀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㔀 㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㔀㨀㔀  倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀䄀 挀漀甀瀀氀攀 洀漀爀攀 洀愀爀猀栀愀氀猀 最甀椀搀椀渀最 爀甀渀渀攀爀猀 愀琀 欀攀礀 樀甀渀挀琀椀漀渀猀⸀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㔀㄀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㘀㨀 ㌀ 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀䴀愀椀渀氀礀Ⰰ 樀甀猀琀 欀攀攀瀀 搀漀椀渀最 愀氀氀 琀栀攀 最爀攀愀琀 琀栀椀渀最猀 礀漀甀✀爀攀 愀氀爀攀愀搀礀 搀漀椀渀最 琀漀搀愀礀⸀ 夀漀甀✀爀攀 爀甀渀渀椀渀最 愀 最爀攀愀琀 攀瘀攀渀琀Ⰰ 栀愀瘀攀 攀砀挀攀氀氀攀渀琀 瀀攀漀瀀氀攀 猀琀攀攀爀椀渀最 椀琀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 瘀漀氀甀渀琀攀攀爀椀渀最 琀漀 愀猀猀椀猀琀 椀琀 漀渀 爀愀挀攀 搀愀礀⸀ ਀㈀ 猀洀愀氀氀 琀栀椀渀最猀 琀漀 椀洀瀀爀漀瘀攀㨀 攀渀猀甀爀椀渀最 洀漀爀攀 琀漀椀氀攀琀猀 愀琀 琀栀攀 猀琀愀爀琀 氀椀渀攀 ⠀䤀 甀渀搀攀爀猀琀漀漀搀 琀栀攀 瀀爀漀戀氀攀洀 眀愀猀 漀甀琀 漀昀 礀漀甀爀 挀漀渀琀爀漀氀⤀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 猀洀愀氀氀攀爀 猀愀昀攀琀礀 瀀椀渀猀 昀漀爀 琀栀攀 爀愀挀攀 戀椀戀猀⸀ ਀吀栀愀渀欀 礀漀甀℀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㔀㈀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㘀㨀㈀㐀 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀䤀 眀漀甀氀搀渀✀琀 挀栀愀渀最攀 愀 琀栀椀渀最⸀ 吀爀愀椀渀椀渀最 刀甀渀猀 眀攀爀攀 愀眀攀猀漀洀攀⸀ 伀爀最愀渀椀稀愀琀椀漀渀 ⼀ 瘀漀氀甀渀琀攀攀爀猀 ⼀愀椀搀 猀琀愀琀椀漀渀猀 眀攀爀攀 愀氀氀 最爀攀愀琀 琀漀漀⸀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㔀㌀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㘀㨀㌀㘀 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀倀氀攀愀猀攀 挀漀渀琀椀渀甀攀 琀漀 瀀爀漀瘀椀搀攀 琀栀攀 琀爀攀洀攀渀搀漀甀猀 爀愀挀攀℀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㔀㐀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㘀㨀㌀㤀 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀䤀 琀栀椀渀欀 椀琀猀 愀 昀愀渀琀愀猀琀椀挀 爀愀挀攀 琀栀攀 眀愀礀 椀琀 椀猀⸀  吀栀攀 漀渀氀礀 挀漀洀洀攀渀琀 眀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 琀栀攀 挀漀甀爀攀 洀愀爀猀栀愀氀氀猀Ⰰ 洀椀最栀琀 氀漀漀欀 愀琀 眀栀攀琀栀攀爀 琀栀攀礀✀爀攀 搀椀猀琀爀椀戀甀琀攀搀 猀甀昀昀椀挀椀攀渀琀氀礀 琀漀 愀瘀漀椀搀 愀渀礀 洀椀砀 甀瀀猀⸀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㔀㔀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㜀㨀 㠀 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀䤀 欀渀漀眀 礀漀甀 栀愀瘀攀 瀀爀漀戀愀戀氀礀 栀攀愀爀搀 琀栀椀猀 戀攀昀漀爀攀Ⰰ 戀甀琀 䤀 琀栀椀渀欀 椀琀 眀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 渀椀挀攀 琀漀 爀攀琀甀爀渀 琀栀攀 攀氀攀瘀愀琀椀漀渀 挀栀愀爀琀 琀漀 琀栀攀 爀愀挀攀 猀栀椀爀琀猀⸀  吀栀愀渀欀猀 昀漀爀 愀 最爀攀愀琀 攀瘀攀渀琀⸀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㔀㘀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㜀㨀㈀㔀 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀䤀 琀栀椀渀欀 琀栀椀猀 礀攀愀爀猀 吀攀挀栀 匀栀椀爀琀猀 眀攀爀攀 樀甀猀琀 渀漀琀 琀栀愀琀 最爀攀愀琀⸀  吀栀攀 搀攀猀椀最渀 眀愀猀 樀甀猀琀 渀漀琀 琀栀攀爀攀⸀  吀栀攀 猀琀礀氀攀猀 漀昀 礀攀愀爀猀 瀀愀猀琀 眀攀爀攀 爀攀愀氀氀礀 眀攀氀氀 搀漀渀攀⸀  吀栀椀猀 礀攀愀爀猀 氀漀漀欀攀搀 氀椀欀攀 椀琀 眀愀猀 樀猀甀琀 琀爀漀眀渀 琀漀最攀琀栀攀爀⸀  䤀 最甀攀猀猀 戀攀挀愀甀猀攀 椀 眀漀爀欀 椀渀 琀栀攀 䐀攀猀椀最渀 椀渀搀甀猀琀爀礀 䤀 栀愀瘀攀 愀 猀琀爀漀渀最 漀瀀椀渀椀漀渀 愀戀漀甀琀 琀栀攀洀⸀⸀⸀⸀戀甀琀 琀栀愀琀 眀愀猀 琀栀攀 最攀渀攀爀愀氀 昀攀攀氀 椀 搀椀猀挀甀猀猀攀搀 眀椀琀栀 漀琀栀攀爀猀  愀猀 眀攀氀氀⸀   ਀吀栀愀琀 戀攀椀渀最 猀愀椀搀 椀昀 琀栀攀 漀渀氀礀 猀漀甀爀 椀 栀愀瘀攀 椀猀 眀椀琀栀 琀栀攀 吀攀挀栀  匀栀椀爀琀猀⸀⸀⸀⸀⸀渀攀攀搀 椀 猀愀礀 洀漀爀攀⸀⸀⸀⸀眀栀愀琀 愀渀 愀洀愀稀椀渀最 搀愀礀 愀渀搀 攀砀瀀攀爀椀攀渀挀攀℀℀℀℀  䨀漀戀 眀攀氀氀 搀漀渀攀 圀伀圀℀℀℀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㔀㜀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㈀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㜀㨀㌀㐀 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀倀甀琀 琀栀攀 攀氀攀瘀愀琀椀漀渀 搀椀愀最爀愀洀 戀愀挀欀 漀渀 琀栀攀 猀栀椀爀琀猀℀  䈀攀挀愀甀猀攀 漀昀 琀栀攀 栀攀愀琀 䤀 眀漀甀氀搀 栀愀瘀攀 氀椀欀攀搀 琀漀 栀愀瘀攀 猀攀攀渀 攀氀漀愀搀 愀琀 猀漀洀攀 漀昀 琀栀攀 洀椀渀漀爀 愀椀搀 猀琀愀琀椀漀渀猀Ⰰ 渀漀琀 樀甀猀琀 琀栀攀 洀愀樀漀爀 漀渀攀猀⸀ Other than that it is one of the best organized events I have ever done!
58Jul 12, 2010 7:42 PMThe t-shirt should have the elevation map on it: I wear my 2009 (and now 2010) shirt whenever I can, but it's difficult to brag about how hard the race is without being able to show people the elevation gain on it. I'd suggest adding more spots to the lottery, but I already know the reasons why the event is limited to ~200 runners.
59Jul 12, 2010 8:21 PMAs it always is, the 2010 Kneeknacer was a great race. I had some major electrolyte/hydration issues and as such had my worst course time ever. A PW!਀ But because of this I spent some time at a few of the aid stations. Everyone was wonderfull and really helpful. It allowed me to finish and I owe thanks to the volunteers that helped out!
60Jul 12, 2010 8:58 PMI thought overall it was a great race. Great people running the event made it something I can't wait to do again

80Jul 13, 2010 4:52 AMshould follow the current BP trail at Mosquito Creek. Note that the trail has been officially rerouted to avoid a steep and dangerous section that somehow was still included in the race course
81Jul 13, 2010 4:58 AMThe only glitch was the lack of bathrooms at the start, but other than that everything was perfect!
82Jul 13, 2010 5:02 AMNot sure it could be.
83Jul 13, 2010 9:42 AMI am looking forward to have the KK's three mountains logo back on the tech shirt next year. Thanks for everything.
84Jul 13, 2010 6:41 PMI have a hard time with the heat. I was really feeling it by the time I crossed Lillooett Rd. The sponges as Hyannis are great, but it's kind of too late by then. It would be nice to have sponges at the Lillooett crossing.਀ Also, some guidance to the volunteers on how to sponge.
85Jul 13, 2010 7:02 PM1.

86Jul 13, 2010 8:15 PMmaybe suggest people handling food and ice wear gloves...?????
87Jul 13, 2010 9:42 PMIts really tough to improve this race! It was the best running experience I have ever had race/non-race. I thoroughly loved it. The support from the volunteers and the other racers was fantastic! I really cannot provide any comment on an item that needs to be improved! I am just hopeful that perhaps next year I can help out either as a comittee member or a volunteer!਀ I must, however, add that Kelsy is a phenomenal speaker and I really enjoyed the pre-race briefing on Friday night. It was informative, interesting and kept short and to the point! Well done!਀ THANK-YOU!
88Jul 14, 2010 12:55 AMDon't allow Adam Campbell, Aaron Heidt, Jacec Doniec, or Ellie Greenwood back into the race, lol!
89Jul 14, 2010 1:16 AMIf possible let the runners know what basic items will be at the aid stations ( water carbo drinks gels )਀ THANKS FOR A GREAT EVENT
90Jul 14, 2010 4:55 AMI think its the best so no room for improvement (although the shirt was a bit dowdy; I miss not having the old logo on the back). There are a lot of talented photographers you recruit and a lot of shots get taken. It would be great if we could access ALL of the shots on the web not just to bask in our own glory but to have shots of old and new friends. I have also wondered if that could raise extra funds for NSR - have a flat fee for a high quality jpeg or 5 of them, say. Many thanks to you all!
91Jul 14, 2010 8:03 PMIt was all good ... perhaps the timing of the briefing was a bit odd (as you mentioned at the meeting, we need to eat/sleep), yet that's probably the best time to do it because of the out of town participants.
92Jul 14, 2010 9:20 PMIt would have been great to have jugs of water on the tables at the banquet - water was defnitely a necessity and the glasses weren't quite big enough. Although the walk back and forth helped us to not get stiff.
93Jul 14, 2010 9:51 PMAllow 60 year old runners to start early.
94Jul 15, 2010 3:15 PMI can't really think of anything.
95Jul 15, 2010 9:11 PMMore washroom facilities at the start - there was only one port-a-john for 200+ people. Personally it didn't bother me and I did find the loo-roll-on-a-rock amusing, but I can't imagine the neighbours around the start would be happy with the amount of human waste that must have piled up around the woods there!
96Jul 15, 2010 9:24 PMThis is a great event. Only minor suggestions: ice at the finish and more port-a- potties at the start (mentioned above); perhaps lengthening it a bit to make it a 50K (if added at the start somehow, this could alleviate the bottle neck when you enter the trail early on)
97Jul 15, 2010 10:42 PMPlease put the course profile back on the shirt!!!
98Jul 15, 2010 11:32 PMThis was by far the best organized and friendliest trail run I have experienced.. and it was by far the most challenging
99Jul 16, 2010 12:01 AMOpen up the field to 300 to allow more to enjoy the beauty of our North Shore Trails
100Jul 16, 2010 3:21 AM- Create a facebook page. That way it is easy to connect with the people you trained with. ਀ⴀ 洀漀爀攀 瀀漀爀琀愀瀀漀琀琀椀攀猀 愀琀 琀栀攀 猀琀愀爀琀 - more volunteers at the final stairs of the race at deep cove. Alternatively, find a separate second entry/exit to the trail as that portion was the only one where there was a problem with us runners and "normal people". Either runners or the "normal people" could use the alternative entry which everyone would benefit from. Main reason for the problem was the medical incident that blocked the trail
101Jul 16, 2010 5:42 AMI can't really put my finger on anything to improve. Maybe turn down the heat for next year's race and make the Black Mountain climb more mellow ;)
102Jul 16, 2010 2:47 PMThe announcing at the finish was a little hard to hear this year, and it would be good to have more comments about the runners for the announcer at the finish.਀伀瘀攀爀愀氀氀Ⰰ 椀琀 眀愀猀 愀 最爀攀愀琀 爀愀挀攀 愀渀搀 椀猀 搀攀昀椀渀椀琀攀氀礀 琀栀攀 栀椀最栀氀椀最栀琀 漀昀 琀栀攀 礀攀愀爀 昀漀爀 洀攀⸀ 圀攀氀氀 䐀漀渀攀℀℀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㄀ ㌀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㘀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  ㌀㨀㈀㄀ 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀䴀椀猀猀攀搀 䔀渀稀漀✀猀 瀀爀攀猀攀渀挀攀⸀  䠀攀 椀猀 猀甀挀栀 愀 瀀愀爀琀 漀昀 琀栀攀 爀愀挀攀 愀渀搀 眀愀猀 琀爀甀氀礀 洀椀猀猀攀搀⸀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀⼀琀爀㸀㰀琀爀㸀㰀琀搀㸀㄀ 㐀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀 猀琀礀氀攀㴀∀眀栀椀琀攀ⴀ猀瀀愀挀攀㨀渀漀眀爀愀瀀㬀∀㸀䨀甀氀 ㄀㘀Ⰰ ㈀ ㄀  㔀㨀㔀㤀 倀䴀㰀⼀琀搀㸀㰀琀搀㸀ⴀ 䴀愀欀攀 猀甀爀攀 愀氀氀 琀栀攀 伀刀䐀䔀刀䔀䐀 倀伀刀吀䄀䈀䰀䔀匀 愀爀攀 吀䠀䔀刀䔀 䘀伀刀 匀唀刀䔀℀  200 nervous runners... :-)਀ⴀ 䤀 挀愀洀攀 琀漀 琀眀漀Ⰰ 琀栀爀攀攀 ☀焀甀漀琀㬀椀渀琀攀爀猀攀挀琀椀漀渀猀☀焀甀漀琀㬀 漀渀 琀栀攀 琀爀愀椀氀 眀栀攀爀攀 䤀 氀椀琀攀爀愀氀氀礀 栀愀搀 琀漀 猀琀漀瀀 愀渀搀 氀漀漀欀 䰀䔀䘀吀Ⰰ 琀栀攀渀 刀䤀䜀䠀吀 琀漀 猀攀攀 琀栀攀 昀氀愀最最椀渀最⸀ 䘀椀渀愀氀氀礀 䤀 猀愀眀 椀琀Ⰰ 䤀吀 圀䄀匀 吀䠀䔀刀䔀Ⰰ 戀甀琀 ㈀  洀攀琀攀爀猀 搀漀眀渀 琀栀攀 琀爀愀椀氀⸀ 吀栀攀 昀氀愀最最椀渀最 渀攀攀搀攀搀 琀漀 戀攀 挀氀漀猀攀爀Ⰰ 爀椀最栀琀 琀栀攀爀攀Ⰰ 琀眀漀Ⰰ 琀栀爀攀攀 瀀椀攀挀攀猀 椀渀搀椀挀愀琀椀渀最 琀栀攀 ☀焀甀漀琀㬀琀甀爀渀☀焀甀漀琀㬀⸀ 圀栀攀渀 漀渀攀 䐀伀䔀匀一✀吀 䬀一伀圀 吀䠀䔀 䌀伀唀刀匀䔀Ⰰ 挀漀洀椀渀最 琀漀 愀渀 ☀焀甀漀琀㬀椀渀琀攀爀猀攀挀琀椀漀渀☀焀甀漀琀㬀 眀椀琀栀 洀愀渀礀 漀琀栀攀爀 琀爀愀椀氀猀Ⰰ 䄀一夀 伀一䔀 挀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 琀栀攀 刀䤀䜀䠀吀 伀一䔀⸀ OVER FLAG at all intersections and turns! The WHITE LIME markings were really good, they "saved" the day many times, at some sections of the trail, there were just SO MANY TRAILS crossing.

105Jul 17, 2010 3:07 PMCouple more marshalls one at the turn down onto MT Seymour road near the top of old buck.
106Jul 17, 2010 11:46 PMBeing that this was my first race and event I can't think of anything. Well done Everyone!
107Jul 18, 2010 9:47 PMFacilities at the start line is a definite must. More gels on the course.
108Jul 23, 2010 3:18 PMit would be hard to improve, I already feel spoiled every year. so many people give so much of there time to make this more than just a trail run.
109Aug 3, 2010 3:41 AMI have never had an issue with KK. I think it is very well organized and I have enjoyed this race for 10 years.
110Aug 9, 2010 5:40 PMLet us run again!!! Again, my only complaint was about the potatoes at the aid stations, please don't boil them, they fall apart too easy. They were roasted for the Diez Vistas 50 k and that worked much better.
