2014 Lottery

Please note that a new and improved registration process is being introduced for the 2014 lottery. In past years, payment of the full entry fee of $120 was required to enter the lottery. For those not selected, a refund cheque of $110 was sent via snail mail after the lottery in early March.

The new process for 2014 is:

- A non-refundable fee of $10 will be charged to enter the lottery
- The deadline to enter the lottery is Feb. 28, 2014 11:59 pm PT - NO exceptions!
- A live lottery drawing will be held in early March via the Knee Knacker FaceBook group -
- If you are drawn in the lottery, your credit card will be charged the balance of your registration (an additional $110) the day after the lottery
- If you are not selected in the lottery, please note there is NO wait list.


The Knee Knack­er­ing North Shore Trail Run is a chal­leng­ing 30-mile foot race along the Baden-Powell Cen­ten­nial Trail from Horse­shoe Bay to Deep Cove. The course will appeal to people with some expe­ri­ence in trail and/or endurance events. It pro­vides run­ners with mag­nif­i­cent city, moun­tain and ocean views, as they go up and over the moun­tains which grace the com­mu­ni­ties of Metro Vancouver’s North Shore, climb­ing 8,000 feet and descend­ing another 8,300 feet in the process. Run­ning Wild mag­a­zine has rec­og­nized the race as one of 25 tough­est races in North America.


What started as a group run with eight par­tic­i­pants in 1989, quickly grew into the largest ultra­ma­rathon race in Canada. By 1994, the race limit of 125 run­ners was reached five months prior to race day, with an even greater number of run­ners being turned away. Since then a lot­tery has been used to select an expanded field of 200 runners.

About Us

The race is pro­duced by the Northshore Ultra Trail­run­ning Soci­ety (incor­po­rated as a non-profit soci­ety in British Colum­bia) – a small group of ded­i­cated run­ners from the Metro Van­cou­ver area. Besides pro­vid­ing a forum for ath­letic com­pe­ti­tion, the race has raised over $84,000 for var­i­ous char­i­ties since its inception.

Local time: 3:32 PM
