At the Race
The safety of our participants, volunteers, and spectators is our top priority. Valley Traffic will be supporting all road crossings and volunteers will be stationed around the course to ensure the trails remain safe for our racers and the general public. We ask that racers abide by our Safe Conduct standards to ensure everyone has a safe and fun Adventure Race! St. John's Ambulance will also be on-site to ensure anyone requiring medical attention is well taken care of.
Staying Fuelled and Hydrated
Once racers are checked in on race day, they will have access to a fuel station where they can stock up on fruit and other fuel options as well as snacks from Cobs Bread and coffe from Starbucks. On the course, there will be water stations offering hydration to racers in key locations on the route.
After the Race
Time to Celebrate!
Following the race there will be a delicious BBQ sponsored by Save-On-Foods, activities for kids, a massage tent to ease those aching muscles, music, refreshments, and much more! All racers are invited to relax and enjoy the celebration of a job well done in support of BC's children living with life-threatening illnesses.
