The Round the Mountain Festival has been successful right from the start and this year a new record for registration has been set with 476 people signed up to hike, bike or run the Round the Mountain Trail.
With that many participants, logistics will be key, so all are encouraged to come to the registration centre on Saturday, June 20 between 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. to sign waivers, collect bibs, t-shirts, hats, maps etc.
With the first 150 trekkers going off at 7 a.m., and staggered starts thereafter, the more people registered early, the better.
SI timing sticks will still need to be collected Sunday before the 20K, 10K runs, 20K MTB, 40K Duo and Duo Sprint.
In order to try to keep vehicle congestion away from the Nordic trails area, a free shuttle bus will run from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. from the downtown visitor’s centre to the Nordic trails.
The following is the complete schedule for the Round the Mountain Festival.
