    Contact the race director or the Race Roster Supports and someone can review your registration for confirmation of your registration. Someone will re-send an email confirmation to you. You should also ensure that you add Race Roster to your safe list.

    If you have selected not to be on the confirmation list during the registration process, you will not appear on the confirmation list. Please contact Race Roster Support and they can review your race registration and ‘un-hide’ your name.

    The course is salted and then a thorough walk-through is done each year to make sure it is safe for all the participants. If there is large snowfall that jeopardizes the safety of the course, a notification will be posted on the Icebreaker’s website 24 hours before the race’s start time and an e-mail will be sent to participants that checked the box to receive e-mails. Please note Kajaks Track & Field Club does not take responsibility for a force majeure. In the event of cancellation, participants will be provided with either a partial refund or a credit to next year’s race.
