Yes, the race is chip-timed. The results will be available within 30 minutes of completion of the race and will be posted online shortly afterwards on the Icebreaker and Startline Timing’s website(s): www.startlinetiming.com.

All the proceeds raised from the Icebreaker go to Kajaks Track & Field Club, a not-for-profit community sports organization. All proceeds from the New Balance 1K Kidsrun goes directly to Kidsport Richmond, which helps kids who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford it, to be able to participate in sports. Thank you for your support!

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.

Yes, strollers are permitted but you must start at the back of the field.

No, unless you are visually impaired and it is your legal guide/service dog.

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. See cancellation/deferral policy.
