The Ice Donkey Winter Adventure will be heats and a mass start.
It is mandatory to wear your race bib on the front of your clothing – AT ALL TIMES.
What to wear:
Please be prepared for any type of weather. Winter events can be warm and sunny or cold and snowy. Bring extra layers so that you can add or take off layers during the race.. (For more suggestions on gear, visit The Wilderness Supply Co. on Ferry Rd. The staff at The Wilderness Supply Co. are very knowledgeable in this area).
Shoes or Boots:
Any type of running shoe or boot will work. Gore Tex shoes are great for winter races. Wear warm socks.
How much to drink:
Due to a winter event it is difficult to have a water station so we recommend bringing some water of your own. At the very minimum you will need ½ a litre of water every 30 minutes. That is equivalent to a 500 ml bottle or biking water bottle. A smaller person might only need 1 litre every two hours. Consider an insulated water bottle holder for your water bottle. Some racers use a hydration system known as a Camelbak but unless you have a tube insulator, your tube line may freeze. This is a plastic bladder with the tube attached that you put in your pack. You can drink from the tube system as you are running along. Even if you never race again you will use this product when you are out walking the dog, picnicking or camping, but like we say, ‘once you try The Ice Donkey Winter Adventure, you’ll be hooked’.
Rules to know:
LEAVE NO TRACE: This is our most important rule. Please respect the environment you are in and be sure to pick up any trash or garbage that my fall from your pack or while on course. The Start/ Finish will have a garbage bag and volunteer staff can take any found garbage.
This will take place following the event. Recommended but not mandatory: at least one complete extra set of clothing for after the event as well as dry hat, gloves, socks, mid layer.
