We will have some draw prizes! One of them is a free registration for the last race of the 2010 Run the North Shore series called "Phantom Run" organized by Mountain Madness on Sat, Nov.13th.
Bikers! If you have one, bring a map holder. Or find a way how to attach the map to your handle bars or your jacket. It will help you to navigate faster. At least 1/3 of the course on trails in the forest, the rest on residential parks and streets. Mountain bike recommended.
Meet at the tennis courts on Westover Rd in Lynn Valley. Here is a map.
