Celebrate Earth Day with a trail run through the Seal Bay Nature Park, located in the Comox Valley.

Our grassroots event will feature a live DJ, a post-run lunch for all registered participants and a gorgeous marked course through the Seal Bay Nature Park. Plenty of high-fives and good vibes all day!

CAUSE
We will be raising funds for Project Watershed, a local Comox Valley charity. Funds raised through our event will focus on the Kus-Kus-Sum Project. As part of our Estuary Stewardship, Project Watershed has committed to the restoration of the Field Sawmill site in partnership with the K’ómoks First Nation and City of Courtenay.

More information on the project is here: https://projectwatershed.ca/2020/01/27/kus-kus-sum/

TIMING
We will provide recyclable race bibs for all participants. Early registrants will have theirs personalized with their names.

Keeping the race simple and affordable in our first year with our focus on participation, the event will be self-timed. We will have a large race clock at the finish line with the official race time, however, we will not be recording or publishing official results.

We encourage you to record your run on Strava, as we have created a segment of the race course and you can compare your results to others if this is important to you. More information on that will be provided before the race and you can download Strava here: https://www.strava.com/dashboard

AWARDS
We will have a small award for the top 3 men and women finishers of both courses only.

ZERO WASTE
Our goal is to make this event zero-waste, meaning that there is absolutely nothing that goes to the landfill. We will make the commitment to not bring any waste that must go to the landfill to this event and will have our Green Team on site for recycling of waste created.

Races create a huge amount of waste and we are trying to eliminate all waste that goes to the landfill. Why not do this on a race that celebrates Earth Day 🙂
