The scream of a whistle.
The blast of an airhorn.
The wave of an official.
And it starts?
A race is more than the day.
It’s spans more than the distance between timing mats. It starts with a commitment, and just keeps going from there. Training miles, nutrition choices, excitement, nerves, stress, sleep… a race is made up of all of this.
Beyond the PR’s or leaderboard is true achievement. Did you take on a genuine challenge? Did you push yourself? Did you learn? Did you fail? Did you see it through? Did you show up for community a race is made up of all of this.
So sign up. Enter the race. Do the event. Join the relay. Run, ride, walk, whatever. Hold yourself accountable. Finish with a smile. I promise you, whatever your ‘race’ every moment, is worthwhile… #livbombshellenuro
No Pain, No Gain
Let’s do it again! Our first race in 2019 was a huge success thanks to all the amazing ladies and volunteers that came out. We are very excited to have the second Bombshell race in the works for 2021. Obviously, 2021 will look a little different. Safety for everyone is our main priority and we are working hard to come up with creative ideas to make this a fun, rewarding and safe event for all.
Racing provides an opportunity to push your limits, embrace your inner competitive spirit, and to meet rad like-minded people. The most important thing with this race is to have FUN whether you are a first timer looking to take on a new challenge or you are a seasoned vet that is going pin-it-to-win-it. Either way the best part is hanging out with other bike-loving women.
We want to showcase the world class trails we have in Vernon. The North Okanagan Cycling Society (NOCS) has done amazing work with BC Parks to build responsible and sustainable trails to help converse the ecosystems and wildlife unique to Kal Park. The park also has some unique history including Cosens Bay being a training ground during WWII which meant the area was littered with ammunition, grenades, mortars, etc. Before any trail can be built in the park the area has to be swept for any remaining devices. Pretty cool right? Hence our NOCS logo and the name Bombshell for the race. We are proudly going to be donating any monies generated from this race back to NOCS to keep supporting our trail fairies.
