Welcome to Knee Knacker 2010 and Happy Holidays!
Hello fellow trail runners! Happy Holidays to all. Planning is already underway for the 22nd Knee Knackering North Shore Trail Run, and we’ll start more regular communications in the New Year. It will be an exciting couple of months with the 2010 Winter Olympics in our back yard!
A big thank you to our 2009 Committee members who are moving on this year and have been integral to our committee and the success of the race – Craig Moore, Jurgen Watts, and Ethelyn David. Thank you ! A special mention also goes to Bill Dagg who has managed the website for a number of years.
I would also like to welcome our new and returning committee members this year – a wonderful, hilarious group of dedicated volunteers:
* Volunteers – Bonnie Walmsley

* Sponsors & Course – Rod Hatfull
* Aid Stations – Lucinda Iglesias

Please don’t hesitate to contact any one of us through Contacts.
Additionally, there is a crew of over 200 volunteers that work to make the race a success each year. Without them, it just wouldn’t happen. If you will be entering the race this year, please do your best to recruit a volunteer. If you are a volunteer, thank you. For more info, or to sign up as a volunteer, please check out Volunteering.
