Sign-up

Can I register? Is my 2020 entry still deferred?
No new registrations taken at this time. If you signed up in 2020 and didn't do the 2021 time trial or donate your entry, your info is still in our database for whenever the race happens again. We are unable to confirm at this time if it will be possible to host a normal event this season. Please check back for an update in early summer.
Can I walk the course?
Yes, it doesn't matter how long it takes you, in the time trial format.
We only have 3 people on our relay team. Can we still run as a relay?
We'd prefer that teams consist of 2 or 4 people only, but if you absolutely can't find a fourth person to run on your team, one team member may run twice. You still must sign up as a 4-person team and pay the entry fee for each member. Note: a person may not run for more than one team.

Runner Services

Is there a gear check? What does it cost?
Yes, you may check your bag for free at the start area and pick it up at the finish area.
Are there aid stations on the course?
There will be 4 aid stations with water and sports drink and a porta potty.
Are there showers and change facilities?
There are change cubicles in the (heated) washroom building at Davis Bay beach (about 150m past the finish line, next to the highway). You can get a shower back in Gibsons at the community centre, for $3. Bring your own towel, and your own lock if you want to use the lockers.

Miscellaneous

I can't participate after all. Can I still get my shirt?
Yes. If you don't live on the Sunshine Coast, we can mail your shirt to you upon request. (If your address has changed since you registered, be sure to let us know right away.) If you live on the Sunshine Coast, come to PaceSetter Athletic Footwear in Gibsons to pick up within a month of the race.
