Knee Knacker 2010 - 16 more days to get your name in the lottery!

Yep, that's right folks it's already time to decide if you want to race in THE Canadian 50km race of the summer - The North Shore Kneeknackering North Shore Trail Run - or KK as it is affectionately called. KK works on a lottery system for entries and deadline to have your name in the draw is February 28th. They'll then do the draw about 2 weeks later - LIVE at North Shore Athletics on Lonsdale!

I raced KK for the first time last summer and it lived up to it's awesome reputation. Great training runs, great camaraderie, awesome volunteers and such professional organisation. It's not the fastest of courses - men's CR was broken last year by Aaron Heidt in a killer time of 4h39 and the women's CR is held by Susan Evans in 5h18. So you can probably figure from those times and the name of the race that it is a course with lots of climbs and fun filled descents on some of Canada's best and gnarliest trails! But the trails are just stunning and the sense of achievement from racing this course are just out of this world.

Check out details and if you like the sound of it - get your name on the list by Feb 28th!
