RACE ENTRANTS
You will need to be at Laurier Park (Story Land Valley Zoo) at 8:30 AM
Follow the signs to the Boat launch parking area.
We will then load you and your board up for the shuttle to Terwilliger Park.
You MUST have a LEASH and a WHISTLE. You will not be allowed into the vans for the shuttle if you do not have them both. (I have them available at the store).

The RACE will start at approximately 9:30 AM from Tewilliger Park.
It is 15.75 km long. Water in a hydration pack of some sort is a good idea.
The fastest RACE people will be done in a time around 1:25.
The FINSIH LINE this year will be the base of the LOW LEVEL BRIDGE (Metal bridge right before the Edmonton Queen River Boat).
This will give you enough time to position your self for a TAKE OUT BEFORE the Riverboat. There will be staff to help you out over the few rocks and then up the boat launch ramp. NOTE – This is different than years past where we exited behind the Riverboat.
You will then be shuttled back to Laurier Park for the Awards and BBQ.
