|I'm excited to finally bring a sanctioned mtb race to the community. And I'm thrilled to be able to do so and give back through West Kelowna Fire and Rescue's Charitable Society to support some really awesome local charities!—Anthony Evans|
The goal of this race is to provide the community with a fun weekend of riding, and for seasoned racers, a warm-up race for the rest of the season! Additionally, we will give back 100% of the funds to important local charities. This includes the BC Burn Fund
who support burn victims in their recovery, the West Kelowna Trail Crew Society
who maintains trails in West Kelowna, Cris Adaptive Adventures
who provide accessibility to the outdoors for the people with disabilities, and the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club

Thanks to Sovereign Cycle
, We Are One Composites
, Bike Big White
and Bryce Brynes Media and Marketing
for generously supporting this event. Without them, none of this would be possible.
I hope that we can organize next year to be late April, and that we don’t cross over on the calendar with anyone else!
I just went through the registration and it looks like you need to be vaccinated, can you please confirm? Thanks!
Not trying to start a silly debate here, but proof of vaccination seems like a good idea
Volunteers may be needed but most of the fire department will be doing so.
And we will get a list and get the people utilized the best we can!
