Yeah it's a fun race! We also have a generous donor who wants to sponsor a team if anyone wants to try the race but may not have the financial means to do so.

I'm sure you'll have no problem finding people interested in taking a free ride. Hell, I'd be interested (and am recently unemployed) but I would only be doing it for fun since I doubt I'd be competitive in any category.

If I end up doing this, how much of my registration fees would end up going back to ECHO?  I like that this is an organization right in my own backyard (Brandon).

What will the mountain bike course be?  I have a friend that is a beginning moutain biker that might give it a try if the course is not too technical.

We have three races: one for each skill level. The mini is designed for families and kids,  The Eco Quest will use the easier trails such as River Loop, Rock Garden maybe  Sand Pine. The Ultimate will use the easier trail plus a couple of the harder ones. But remember there is also canoeing and a run/walk, plus fun mystery challenges :)

Ecogirl: Could I walk the "run" section of the Quest version? Bad knees dont let me run.
Also, my kids are 8,8, and 9. Would they enjoy it?
My son (8) could probably handle the quest race.

Is there really any choice to do something other than the Ultimate. My training goal is to come in ahead of everyone who DNFs.

Approx how long are the paddling and run/walk sections for the various levels?  Is it anything like the Croom Crumbler/Crusher in length? 
 
Sorry if this info is already on the site.  I am having issues pulling it up in my browser.
