Paddlers are encouraged to have support personnel, or “pit crews”, accompany them along the course. Pit crews can carry belongings and offer refreshments and encouragement throughout each day, enabling paddlers to focus on the task at hand. Pit crews must provide their own vehicles. Pit crews may provide only nutritional assistance and encouragement; they may NOT carry the racer’s boat or equipment or upgrade equipment during the course of a day’s paddling. Only broken or malfunctioning gear may be replaced. Pit crews may NOT provide wheels for a boat on any portage; if a racer opts to use wheels to carry their boat, they must carry the wheels in their boat all three days.
We need volunteers, safety boats, timing personnel, monitors, etc. Please call the race hotline at (250) 814-7473. We sincerely appreciate all the help we can get to make this event enjoyable and successful for all! Volunteers are offered a free meal at the awards ceremony on Sunday.
