Snow to Surf race entries filling up quickly

Organizers still searching for a design for 2017 race shirts

Fresh snow on Mount Washington and a revitalized group of Race Bosses has led to a surge of entries to the 35th Royal LePage Snow to Surf Relay within 60 minutes of registration open on the website.

The sudden rush to get a race number for nine-member teams means that places in the race will fill up quickly for Vancouver Island’s funnest event. Check the website and follow the event on Facebook and Twitter.

The event is still looking for a fresh design for the 1,600 race shirts that will deck the bods of competitors on April 23.

A $200 prize is offered for the best design, but the design contest closes on Jan. 6. Looking for inspiration? Lots of race photos on the website or look for Snow to Surf videos on YouTube. Drop off  your art work at the Royal lePage office or email it to
