Knee Knacker – more than just a race!

To increase our com­mu­nity impact and legacy, runners, volunteers and supporters can donate to North Shore Search and Rescue by setting up their own personal donation page or donate to another runner’s page. Donations go directly to North Shore Search and Rescue, and an electronic tax receipt is issued on donation. Addi­tion­ally, for any runner that raises $100 or more, we will waive the 4 hour vol­un­teer require­ment. While we hope you’ll be as excited about this pos­si­bil­ity as we are, it’s impor­tant to note that rais­ing funds is com­pletely optional. We will not require any­thing dif­fer­ent from you if you choose not to participate.


You can set up your own personal donation page by clicking here so your friends and family can support you and our Knee Knacker community even further. We will add a little friendly competition and for the individual who raises the most money between Feb 1, 2024 and 8:00pm PDT June 30, 2024, in addition to bragging rights, we will award a GUARANTEED LOTTERY SPOT for 2025!

Yes, really.

We feel so strongly that (as a trail running community) we can have a big impact on people’s lives – not ‘just’ hold a great event – that we decided we would put a coveted spot out there. Just think… if each runner raises $300 (an example of a dollar per mile from 10 people)… we as a community would donate $60,000! How cool would that be!?!
