- or slightly moistland after you've been through the three creeks...twice.
Sunday August 15th, 5pm (the nights are fair drawing in) meet in the parking area where Annie Lake Rd first meets Annie Lake at approx km 15/16. The two mile trail starts from the road and runs the Carbon Hill 30 in reverse, for a mile, up the sandy hill, through a small, medium, and slightly larger than medium creek before looping round and returning through the creeks and down the nice hill. The Canicrossers have a nice flat 1 mile trail, without any water crossings, and the two 1 doggers simply go half the distance of the two milers (yes, you get the hill too - but don't forget you come down it as well).
Simple, straightforward, the trails will be well-flagged by local volunteer Hugh Neff. Any possible complaints regarding trail flagging should therefore please be directed to Mr Neff.
Prizes for 1-3rd in the 4 races are delicious cash certificates (ok, the stuff you buy with them is delicious, the certificate itself may not actually be delicious, although I havn't tried it) from the delectable goodies stocked in Yukon Meat and Sausage - The Deli, whilst supporting prizes are kindly provided by Icy Waters Ltd, Aurora Booties, Muktuk Kennels, C&D Feeds (luverly cat treats (ok, I havn't tried this either, but I'm sure it's tasty) I know some of you have cats!), and there's still a most popular T shirt from the Yukon Agriculture Association amongst the prizes.
Following the prize ceremony, Normand Casavant and Carine Grenier have kindly agreed to host the pot-luck BBQ at their kennel at Km 8, Annie Lake rd, thank you Casaventures!
A sample from YM&S, the Deli - to receive the actual certificate just turn up for the race with a dog tied to you and run or cycle very fast...simple! but if you don't want to go fast (nothing wrong with walking in the Canicross, I've done it, the dog likes it), don't worry, there'll be something for everyone; just come out and have fun!
