First year, for this now Spring feature race. 2007 was an extremely wet spring, with closures on portions of the seawall. To accommodate this last minute change, we ran the Elite race separate from the all-comers event. With the start finish at Lumberman’s Arch in Stanley Park.
We pitched a number of venues and event outlines to develop this event for the sponsor, managed all aspects of the event from start to finish.
Over $105,000 was raised in support of Prostate Cancer Research programs at the Vancouver General Hospital.
