Change announced for 2016 Royal LePage Snow to Surf Race

There will be a new look to the 34th annual Royal LePage Snow to Surf Race.

The road bike leg will now end at Millard Drive, where one team member from a previous leg (paddler, alpine skier, Nordic skier, snowshoer, runner or road cyclist) will run along Riverway Walkway to a designated area by Comox Valley Kayaks. The run is approximately 2.4 kms.

“We have decided to incorporate part of the Courtenay Riverway into the event and this eases a lot of congestion by the Whistle Stop,” says race chairperson Rick Gibson.

Canada’s premier multisport relay event, the annual competition is a race that goes from winter conditions at the summit of Mount Washington Alpine Resort to sea-level action at Comox Marina Park. It attracts a mix of local legends, champions and recreational athletes that compete year after year.

Be part of the adventure, challenge and passion of Royal LePage Snow to Surf Race’s 34th annual event. Save money by registering early at snowtosurf.com before Jan. 17, 2016.  Race date is set for Sunday, April 24, 2016 at 9:15 a.m.

 

This nine- or 10-person team relay finishes with post-race action that brings tons of excitement to the Comox Valley. For more information or to volunteer go to snowtosurf.com
