Fluffy Bunny Trail Run

New date and time! June 20th 0900, Buntzen Lake.

Lots of distances for all runners.

For those who have attended before, there will be no pre run breaky this year. I have just updated the "Agenda" page to reflect "light snacks" and COFFEE pre run at 0800 when the park opens. Prizes will be awarded at 0830 for all those who are present. Due to the variety of finish times, this seems to be the way to go as a post run get to gether wouldn't work.

The 2009 Vancouver 100

We're getting very close to the date for the Vancouver 100. Our list of participants is very small so far. I don't understand why. Who wouldn't want to spend up to 24 hours or more on the Baden Powell Trail? You'll be surrounded by spectacular scenery, rugged terrain, wildlife, treacherous snow conditions, ever changing weather, potential darkness, and endless challenges. Included with that comes a complete lack of mosquitoes and a generous amount of time to spend contemplating life.
