UNICON 17: Rumors and pre-planning

Hey, I understand Unicon 17 will be in Montreal.
That puts it within feasible driving distance for me, if I plan ahead.
Anyone have any idea of what the dates will be? Any other info? Anyone else planning to drive from Northwestern U.S.?

confirmations will be coming soon guys, I think we're probably going to hold it around the same dates as Unicon 16 since it's probably the best time of the year for everyone. So from July 21 to July 31. Nothing confirmed though yet!

Great thanks

I have one request for the event....... please spread the long distance events out. Unicon 16 had the 100k (which was really a XC obstacle course) only 2 days after the marathon

Alan, the marathon had to be on a Sunday due to the issue of closing down the roads. Obviously, the 100km race should be on the last day of Unicon. Hence the painfully close race dates.

Just a suggestion for getting more volunteers..... give a 10% discount off your entry for every event you volunteer to help with..... volunteer for to help with 10 events then you get in for free

+1
Some sort of incentive for volunteering (discount, lodging, food, ect) would make it so you had more volunteers than you know what to do with

They could have run it in the evening?

How does one get into Unicon? Do you have to qualify for the events, or do you just pay an entry fee and you're in?
