Knee Knacker Thanks
Well I had to smile at Andrew’s post last Sunday along the lines of ‘we’re all done until next year’… that shows Andrew’s level of organization and efficiency. I, on the other hand have been nursing my combined Knee Knacker “high” and “hangover” for a full week.
Thank you again to all of our wonderful volunteers, sponsors and runners who make the Knee Knacker what it is. I sincerely appreciate all of you who have reached out to send your thanks and offer help (for next year already!). We had the highest number of finishers this year at 198, and a full roster of 250 volunteers.
We will send out a survey to both runners and volunteers in the next week and I look forward to your feedback and suggestions. We’ve already got several interesting ideas about next year that we’ll look into over the upcoming months. (eg. Possibly live webcam for the finish line and a live/online lottery draw… no promises yet, but it could be fun.)
We do have a couple of lost and found items left – if anyone can identify the camera they lost and what piece of their Garmin equipment is missing, we do have these items ready for you to pick them up.
We’re proud this year to be donating $4,000 (plus any proceeds from the photos) to North Shore Search and Rescue, and very much appreciate their race day and year round support.
We will continue posting pictures (thank you Karen!), stories and info over the coming weeks, and then we will hibernate a bit while we enjoy the rest of the summer. Come the fall, we’ll gear up again and start to reach out with info prior to the end of the year.
Thank you for another outstanding year & happy trails,
