Extra, extra – lots of Knee Knacker news!
Hello Everyone! For those of you who are volunteers, THANK YOU. For those of you who are runners, I hope your training is going well!
Here are a few key updates and please note that we also post info on our Facebook page:
Training Runs – Start Sunday, May 5th
It’s time to kick off the official Sunday Training runs. Get to know your fellow Knee Knackerers and the course in a friendly and supportive environment. Everyone is welcome–you don’t need to be a Knee Knacker participant to join. Check out our training run page for all of the info. This year your fearless training run leaders are Glenn Pacé, Patricia Jensen and Mark Grist. And a thank you also goes to Clive Boness who leads the ‘unofficial Wednesday night runs’.
Last chance to order Knee Knacker jackets
Great news for runners and volunteers who haven’t yet ordered a commemorative jacket. After checking with our supplier, we’ve been able to extend the purchase deadline to midnight, May 7th. For information about the jacket or to purchase one, go to our 25th Anniversary jacket page. If you’d like to see the style in person, there will be men’s and women’s samples including colour swatches at the Sunday, May 5th training run.
We are excited to offer runners and volunteers the ability to raise money for North Shore Rescue through a personalized fundraising page. Last year, the Knee Knacker community raised over $20,000 for North Shore Rescue. Our goal for this 25th year is $25,000! We are pleased to once again announce that the person who raises the most money will be given a GUARANTEED ENTRY into Knee Knacker 2014! Last year, Kristin Kopec set the bar high–let’s see who can top that this year!
This is a special year! If you have pictures or stories from the early years, please let us know. We’d love to post these on our site for everyone to enjoy.
Please be in touch if you have any questions or comments.
I look forward to seeing you on the trails,
