February 20, 2016 by Bryan Tasaka | No Comments on ANNOUNCEMENT: Record sellout & Parkside contest winner
Wow. In a mere 46 days, the 37th edition of the Atmosphere Mind Over Mountain Adventure Race sold over 600 entries making this event the fastest sellout and biggest turnout in our 17 year history.
We have racers coming from across North America and even a few from Australia, Germany, and South Africa. Over 50% are first time MOMAR racers, the gender split is pretty much 50/50, the youngest racer is 16 with a few seasoned pros in their 60’s, the average age is 39, and 100% love adventure!
As a bonus to those that registered and posted a comment on the MOMAR Facebook page, one lucky adventure racer would win a prize package that included a one night stay at the Parkside Hotel and Spa in Victoria (includes parking, breakfast and a $50 spa credit) and their MOMAR entry would be reimbursed. Awesome, eh?
And the winner of the prize package is…. Danielle Simonot from Calgary! Danielle is racing with her life partner in the Enduro and stated in her team bio that it’s “…victory or divorce!” Congratulations Danielle! Big thanks to everyone who entered and to the Parkside Hotel & Spa for the generous prize package.
The 2016 edition of the Atmosphere Mind Over Mountain Adventure Race is now officially sold out. Over 600 adventure athletes from across Canada and the USA have signed up to take on the challenges of the MOMAR in the historic village of Cumberland.
This year’s MOMAR will be the 37th race in its 17 year history and 16th in the Comox Valley. Other past venues included Duncan, Squamish, Ladysmith, Cowichan Lake, Sechelt, Burnaby, Shawinigan Lake, and Ucluelet. The Cumberland race has always been the most popular venue and this year’s sellout only took 46 days.
Thank you to everyone who signed up and make the commitment to take on the challenges of the MOMAR! See you in September!
