21st Annual Kelowna Pub Relay - November 17

Nov 8, 2019 by KRC

The 21st annual Kelowna Pub Relay is designed to be simple, fast and above all, not taken too seriously!

What is it?

It is a fun run where a team of six will cover approximately 32 kms in costumes. The relay exchange points are at six amazing Kelowna Pubs.  All proceeds will be donated to HOPE Outreach Kelowna https://hopeokanagan.com


When: The 21st annual Kelowna Pub Relay will take place on Sunday, November 17, 2019 at 10:15 am.

Where:  Rusty’s Sports Lounge (1525 Dilworth Dr, Kelowna, BC V1Y 9N5)

How: Registered teams of six runners will show up in their costumes at the Start/Finish (Rusty's Sports Lounge) at 10:15 am and be handed a map of the first leg and the relay Baton. The runner takes off and meets the team at the next Pub/Exchange, until, 6 legs later, the whole team arrives back for lunch, a beverage and of course prizes at Rusty's Sports Lounge. Prizes are awarded for best team costumes and much more!

I don’t have a full team to join me… how do I join?

And the best part?

We have teamed up this year with a group of 4th year nursing students at UBCO to raise funds for H.O.P.E Outreach Kelowna, which is a local charity helping homeless and exploited women in the Okanagan. All 2019 proceeds will be donated to HOPE Outreach Kelowna. https://hopeokanagan.com
