  • Fresh Air Hard Knox Challenge is not just Road but an exciting combination of Road and Trail

      • Knox Grind - A timed section on the lower section of Apex. PS: Mizuno runners for both male and female winners

  • Start with a fast out and back leg From Sutherland Park along the Okanagan Lakeshore and back.
  • then the first challenge up the Grind to the first lookout on Knox Mountain (trail)
