CRAZY COSTUMES ARE just of the fun of the annual Royal LePage Comox Valley Snow to Surf Race.

Snow to Surf parade returns in 2014

Organizers also announce changes to race start and running portion

Big changes have been announced for the 32nd annual Royal LePage Snow to Surf Race.

The parade is back on Saturday, April 26, 2014 in downtown Courtenay. “They asked for it and so we brought it back,” states race chairperson Rick Gibson. “Having the parade downtown will also enable us to have a new venue for the Race Package pick-up. The new location will now be at the Native Sons Hall from 6 to 8 p.m. after the parade.”

Changes have also been made for race day. The event will begin with a snowshoe course near the loading area of the Hawk Chairlift on Mount Washington. Athletes will run a marked course up towards the alpine exchange that will be at the top of the Whiskey Jack Chairlift.

The race will also go back to two running legs, however the teams can either have one person do both legs or it can be split into two runners.

Jan. 18, 2014 is the early registration deadline for the multisport relay event. The 32nd Royal LePage Comox Valley Snow to Surf Adventure Relay Race goes from winter conditions at the summit of Mount Washington Alpine Resort to sea-level action at Comox Marina Park and attracts a mix of local legends, champions, and recreational athletes that compete year after year.

Registration is limited to the first 175 adult teams and the first 25 junior teams. Save time and money and be part of the adventure, challenge and passion of Royal LePage Snow to Surf Race. Register now at www.snowtosurf.com.  Race date is set for Sunday, April 27, 2014.

This nine- or 10-person team relay race includes snowshoeing, alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, running (road and off-road), mountain biking, kayaking, road cycling, canoeing, and it will finish with post-race action that will bring tons of excitement to the Comox Valley, organizers note.
