A big part of the 24 Hours of Adrenalin experience is the gathering of teammates, families and friends over the weekend. We have worked hard to layout the camping areas for maximum benefits to everyone while keeping the flow of this large event as smooth as possible.
Over the past few years the Canmore Nordic Centre has continued to request changes to the camping layouts. 2015 saw the phase out of the “Biathlon Area, an area that since 1996 has been used each and every year and many loyal teams have continued to select these sites.
A wristband policy will be in effect throughout different areas again to ensure that riders and volunteers can maneuver the transition areas as required. Every athlete will be required to wear a wristband throughout the event.
- Included in your team entry fee is one (1) camping spot that is approximately 600 square feet. Corporate teams are given two (2) sites. Solo sites are approximately 100 square feet and 2 person sites are approximately 200 square feet.
- All solo competitors and 2-person teams will be camping in a specific area referred to as Solo Pit Row.
- All other camping sites are clearly marked in specific designated areas.
- We will have a ‘camping crew’ onsite to assist you in locating your reserved campsite, but please familiarize yourself with the camping map provided.
- You are responsible to clean up your campsite 100% and this must be considered continually throughout the event. The Conservation Officer will be making rounds of the campsites to ensure, no garbage or food is left unattended. If the site has garbage visible, the entire team will not be permitted to participate.
- In consideration for the wildlife corridor in which the event takes place, NO food products must be left out and unattended. All food must be locked away in a secure location in order to limit the attention to the wildlife in the park.
Once again, we are excited to be working with DIG – Do It Green, from Calgary, for the third year in a row. And are proud of our continued effort to divert as much waste as possible from our landfills. In 2015, our diversion was 70% and in 2016 it was 83% – a tremendous success.
Please think about your waste consumption during the event weekend and use the recycling stations that will be positioned in the infield area. Remember, we have a ZERO TOLERANCE rule regarding leaving any garbage or food unattended. This is a wildlife corridor and food and garbage are attractants that need to be locked away securely when unattended.
We will have garbage collection at the campsites, but help our volunteers and DIG crew by putting your garbage into the bear proof bins located near the day lodge.
We also need you to pay particular attention to move out on Sunday and insist that you DO NOT leave your garbage at your campsite and either bring all your garbage away with you or dispose of it in the garbage bins provided at the event site.
