PRESS RELEASE: Liv Bombshell Solstice Women’s Enduro Race
We are excited to announce the launch of the Liv Bombshell Solstice women’s enduro race in the Okanagan. Come celebrate the summer solstice by racing in a one-day enduro race taking place June 22, 2019 at Kalamalka Lake Park in Vernon BC. Registration opens February 1, 2019 and the cost is $75. For more details check out our website www.vernonenduro.com
Our goal is to get more women into racing in the Interior of BC and to showcase the awesome trails we have here in Vernon. This race will be first-timer friendly as well as providing a fun course for more seasoned racers. We are including a U21 category and are super stoked to already be getting a lot of interest from the youth in the area.
We know the women’s mountain bike scene in BC is strong. Examples of this are the wildly successful Hot On Your Heels race in Squamish which sells out in a matter of minutes and is now going into its seventh year. As well as the impressive turnout for the first Revelstoke Women’s Enduro last year. We want to keep rolling with that momentum by starting a race in the Interior.
We are lucky to have the support of the North Okanagan Cycling Society (NOCS). The guys and gals at NOCS have done incredible work growing the mountain bike community in Vernon with membership being as high as 700 in recent years. Liv Cycling has stepped up to be our title sponsor and has graciously donated an Intrigue 2 bike that we will be raffling off. All proceeds will go back to NOCS so they can continue building and maintaining our trail networks. There will be early bird prizes up for grabs including a chance to win 2 nights accommodations at the Sandman Hotel in Vernon for the first 50 registrants.
One last thing, volunteers needed!! We all know an event cannot be successful without the help of many volunteers. Check out our website for details or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will get a cool t-shirt, free breakfast, burger and bevy afterwards and will be able to win the prizes.
