Peddling Like Mad – Behind the scenes there’s a lot of coordination happening but we thought we should check in and let you know that things are moving along smoothly, logistics are falling into place and EarthCaches are popping up around the Cowichan Valley and points beyond.
Satellite Events - We are planning Satellite Events to occur in the days leading up, and after, the Mega. If you’re thinking of booking time or flights, consider being in the region for 2 – 3 days before and 1 or 2 days after the Mega. Ideas for Satellite Events are tours to EarthCache locations with experienced guides, guided hikes, stroller friendly outings and probably some geocoins and a CITO.
Chemainus - Have you heard of Chemainus – The Little Town that Did? It was a typical BC mill town, but then the mill shut down and a lot of people needed to find a way to keep their town from becoming a ghost town. Up sprung an incredible array of murals, a theatre, a hotel and some lovely trails to explore. Make sure and take the time to check out Chemainus!
Royal Victoria Marathon - If running a marathon (or half) sounds like a great add on to your vacation, make sure and check out the Royal Victoria Marathon event which will be run on Sunday, October 12th in 2014. This is one of the most scenic marathons in the world and a ‘Boston Qualifier’.
Volunteering – If you’d like to help out with any aspect of the event, please send a note to CJ@landsharkz.ca and we’ll match your skills and experience to volunteer opportunities. One of the perks for volunteering will be an LE ‘Volunteer’ t-shirt that you can wear proudly for years.
Have a great fall and we’ll see you in just under a year!
Helen and Chris
