In an attempt to help support trail races affected by recent COVID-19 cancellations, @coastmtntrail has launched a fundraiser where they’re selling limited edition, locally designed, head wraps with the slogan, “I support local Race Directors”. While the focus is on trail running races, they have been gracious enough to allow us to include the Vedder Mountain Classic in this campaign.
Act fast though, because the campaign will end at the end of April. Pop over to their site to get yours!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You can choose which race organization / race director you’d like to support with your purchase in the order form below. Headwraps cost $25 CAD (or approx $18 USD), and 100% of profits will go to the race organization / race director that you select. Head wraps will be shipped anywhere across North America for free, or anywhere around the world for a nominal additional shipping fee.
INFORMATION TO USE
Race: Vedder Mountain Classic
We have many race organizers, including @ekliever. Shout out to him, but please use the above information.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
With the cancellation of the race, the proceeds from this year's race will no longer be available for future trail work or projects.
We understand it's a difficult time for many people throughout our community, but we encourage those who can afford to purchase their membership through the FVMBA to still do so. We have been seeing an increase in trail use during this time and the funding the FVMBA receives through membership, sponsorships and donations helps to ensure trail maintenance and development may continue throughout the Fraser Valley.
We thank you all for your continued support and look forward to seeing you out on the trails in the future. Stay safe, stay distant, and be sure to take care of yourselves during this time.
About the Vedder Classic
Once one of the oldest mountain bike events in Canada, the Vedder Classic has a rich history that began in 1985 and ran until the mid 1990s. The event was revived 5 years ago by a group of passionate volunteers who were eager to share some of the most spectacular single track trails that the Valley has to offer: epic climbs, technical sections, long descents, smooth rolling contours, rocks, roots and loam!
This race has something for everyone, offering a Full Course (35k) and a less grueling Shortened Course (15k). Enjoy a fully taped course, tons of volunteer support, a wicked after party and the bonus cash prizes!
PLEASE NOTE: This is not registration for the Canadian Enduro Series.
The Canadian Enduro Series is a separate race from the Vedder Mountain Classic happening on the same weekend. Find more details about the Enduro Series here.
