We hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season thus far and have some great 2019 running plans in the works!
Just an update regarding the selection for the 2019 National Trail Team:
4 of the 6 spots will be named on January 31st. We had 1 male spot and 1 female spot claimed at the UTHC 65km auto qualifier back in September.
We will be using the Chuckanut 50km on March 16th, 2019 in Bellingham, Washington as an opportunity for a final auto qualifier.
The event is sold out, HOWEVER, if you are interested in competing and attempting to garner a spot on Team Canada for 2019 you are still able to get into the event. You need to contact myself (Ryne) and NOT THE RACE DIRECTOR. I will liaise the entry process on behalf of the event. You will still need to pay the entry fee ($95USD plus taxes) but will be given a code to bypass the waitlist and get into the event.
The criteria to gain an auto spot on the 2019 team we be: 1st Canadian Male under 3h55m and 1st Canadian Female under 4h25m. If someone who is already on the team named Jan 31st tops the Chuckanut results the spot will roll down as long as the time barrier is still achieved.
Happy trails and best wishes for the holiday season to you and your families.
