WHAT? A run in and around the Capilano Canyon followed by a descent of the Capilano River from Cleveland Dam to the Pacific.
WHEN? Tuesday 1 July 2008 (Canada Day) - 10:00 am
WHY? It's Canada Day... spend a couple of hours with friends to appreciate the fabulous outdoors. Discover Capilano Canyon from a different perspective now that the river isn't rushing as much as it usually is. Note: Try to wear something with a red maple leaf on it!
WHERE? Capilano Fish Hatchery, North Vancouver, BC
From downtown Vancouver, take North Van exit off Lions Gate Bridge then Capilano Road about 2km. Turn left at sign indicating Capilano Regional Park. Park at the last parking lot before the fish hatchery. Meet at the gazebo opposite the hatchery entrance.
From Second Narrows Bridge, take #1 west to Capilano Road exit, then about 1k north to park entrance (as above.)
Dho! If you reach Montroyal Blvd and Cleveland Dam parking lot, you've gone too far.
INFORMATION? This is a very losely organized event in celebration of Canada Day. Join me for the trail run (about 1 hour on nice trails), the river run (no clue, never done it) or both.
You will need your own boat (river kayak, canoe, raft, etc.), life jacket, helmet, paddles as well as your running gear and a change of clothes. Worried about freezing your fat ass if you get dunked in the river? Bring a wetsuit. If you're an experienced whitewater kayaker who knows the Cap River and you join us, I will buy you a beer!
Best to contact Ean Jackson at 604-904-6554 to discuss logistics if you're interested in doing the river run.
