(emailed Sept. 26, 2019)
Hello Wandering Moose Runners!
Thank you for choosing the Moose as part of your 2019 race line up! We are beyond excited for our 7th annual event and can’t wait to celebrate with you all!
We have some beautiful handmade ceramic finishers medals ready to hand out (with a hug, of course) and a really cool soft-style high quality locally designed t-shirt for all runners. My Mom and I have also made homemade strawberry jam for top finishers and some extras to giveaway – so be sure to stick around for your chance to win!
The weather in Kelowna has been a mix of sun and rain and we are holding hope for ideal fall conditions, however we will continue to monitor the long-term forecast and keep you posted. Regardless, the mornings can be cool and parts of our course are quite remote, so we advise that you bring “all the things” to the race start and decide at the trail-head what to wear based on the forecast on race day. We would hate for anyone to have to drop out, due to not being prepared with the proper gear.
The following information needs to be read in full as there is very important and recent information that will contribute to helping make Wandering Moose a success!

STRICTLY ENFORCED CUT-OFFS:
The 42km event has three cut-off times. The first cut-off is at the third aid station and you must arrive to the aid station by 3:00pm. This gives participants 6hrs to complete approx.30km of the full 42km course. The second cut-off is at the 4th aid station at 4:30pm. This gives participants 7.5hrs to complete approx.40km of the full 42km course. The third is at the finish line which is Please keep in mind if you’re arriving into the aid station close to the cut off times, we encourage you to make your aid station transition quick so you have more time to make the subsequent cut-offs.
If for some unforeseen reason you need to withdraw from the race, participants must report their decision to the nearest Aid Station Captain or race HQ at the start/finish. Please do not go home without reporting that you have withdrawn or Kelowna SAR will be sent out to look for you!
There is parking available at start/finish, however we strongly request that you carpool, as space is limited. Thank you.
