2nd Annual Nakkertok Pulk Pull - registration is now open!
By:  Jonathan Methot   (2013/02/14)

Saturday Feb 23 is the date for the 2nd Annual Nakkertok Pulk Pull and registration is now open. Please use the website to register or send me an email.


The event happens on the lunch our of the Cookie race and this day is jammed packed at Nakkertok South and we are only given 1.15 minutes to pull this event off. So we need to start the race soon after 12 noon. As result the course is only 6kms or two laps of a 3k.

Last year we brought in 220 pounds of flour and I really want to beat that number because the recipient, The Ottawa Food Bank, found this extremely useful.

This is a fun event. There is no registration fee and your only cost is the flour. I would like to see more women racers and even young racers. If you have a special request, let us know. We will need you to sign a waiver, but that goes with any race. Perhaps on the start line you can do this task.

If you don't want to race but have a pulk or know of anyone that has a sled, them me know so I can lend it out. I really want to get the number of participants up because I simply want more flour! Alternatively, you can donate a bag of flour but we would prefer to see that bag get hauled around the course first.

I hope most of the details of the race are covered in the listed website but if you have further questions, please get back to us. Ian Joiner (ian.c.joiner@gmail.com) has kindly helped in the organization of the event so either of us can answer any questions you may have.

Please spread the word about this event.
