NIMBY Fifty Reg Opens at 4:20…

Date Feb 15, 2013

Possibly BC’s most technically challenging marathon XC race, NIMBY Fifty registration opens today at 4:20 pm – to a nice and round 420 racers. Race day is set for Saturday, May 25th, 2013 and both the base camp location and race course remain the same. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…

Pemberton mayor Jordan Sturdy’s farm lies under the shadow of Mount Currie; you couldn’t find a better place to end a race and hang out for the evening. As a bonus, this year you can camp right on site (YES!). Great food, lots of prizes, and definitely beer. Check out Seb Kemp’s solid recap of the 2012 event with great photos from Todd Hellinga HERE, and Connor Macleod’s everywhere-on-the-course recap vid HERE.
