Bibs and Toques

IMG_2291

They’re ready to hand out! We have race bibs and toques (participants get black, volunteers get blue) in hand and ready to give out at our pre-race meeting. Everything turned out nicely.

Just over a week away!

With just over a week to go we’re concluding our final official committee meeting for 2019. Still lots of ‘race week’ stuff left to take care of; with registration now closed we can assign bib numbers and produce CheckPoint check sheets, populate the timing system, etc., and we have to put together an instructional video for the volunteers, do a big poster and information sheet print job, and so on, but we’re on schedule and looking foward to another successful race.

The draw prizes have been gathered, the volunteers are all assigned (THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!), the CheckPoint facilities are all good to go, and the course is GPS’d (is that a verb?) BRING ON THE RACE!

Checking the Check Points (w Video)

We’ve received requests for more info on each checkpoint so we took a morning over the Christmas break and drove around southern Manitoba capturing brief video footage of each checkpoint.

It’s not super entertaining but in a little over 5 minutes you can catch a glimpse of each checkpoint and hopefully glean a bit of helpful info too!

If the video doesn’t embed well on your device you can go directly to it here.
