Great work Patrick! But I don’t think in the 15+ years of organizing the RTH I ever had that many issues in one year but it seems like that the people at the board of Ed are making things more difficult.

Looked like a neat course despite having to make changes. Lots of climb like it should be!

I just realized that it was 20th annual race! Year 1 was 2000.

Check out race #1 (it was pretty easy back then eh!).

Wow. Just wow. Almost every event involves a few setbacks of that type but that is just ridiculous. As a participant, I thought things appeared perfect other than the very minor changes to the Matrix clues. You didn’t look flustered or carry around alcohol or anything. Impressive. Thanks!

planned easy becomes unpredictably difficult! :)

All that and the language barrier too. Wow.

Well done Patrick! We missed you at Ontario champs, but super glad everything is okay.

Hammer that 2000 Raid was so much fun, what an awesome race.

Entire course on the mashup map I used for planning for anyone who hasn't seen and to compare from 20 years ago.

Disclamer: No printing out please, HCA doesn't want us to make our maps publicly available lest the general public discover where all the 'unofficial trails are'. No comment.

impressive ! Patrick..always when organizing something- i get to some dead ends as well.. just to find a 'new opening' or use the alternate choice. but this one seem to have lots

Another great event from my perspective too. I like not having a bus ride at the start. Take that money and get some extra bottles of wine! I also thought it was kinda cool that the trail suddenly opened up at the start. Made everyone think on their feet with 3 minutes to go time.
