The only new event for #COTR2017 takes place in little, old Qualicum Beach at the Community Civic Centre. The course is centered around the various playing fields adjacent to the Civic Centre. Expect lots of grass (probably wet and slippery), not much elevation, sections of single track, a BMX track (ridden backwards) and some sand pits. The Ravensong Swimming Pool is only a hop-skip- and-jump away so a great family location. Click to go to the website.
Very spectator friendly race lots of action, come out and watch.
Racing starts at 10:00am and each heat will take about an hour.
