Start and Finish

Known to the locals as Snellins Cove but found on charts as Dumpling Cove. To get there, you come onto North Twilllingate Island, over the tickle, and take a left where there are signs for the Twillingate Museum and the Wooden Boat Museum. Follow the road until it turns into a dirt road and just around past the cemetery is the picturesque Snellins Cove.

Water & Food

There will be water and food stations (as long as Covid does not restrict us) throughout the course. Last year we had 50 volunteers and we will look for that same support to make this race well marked and the runners well cared for.

Cancellation Policy

If for any reason you cancel prior to July 1, we will offer a full refund minus any processing fees. If you cancel after July 1, there will not be a refund as we start to spend the money but a swag bag will be available to you.

Sweater Donation

If you wish to wear an old sweater to the start line, there will be collection bins and all items will be donated locally.

Rockcut 2021 Charitable Donation

As many of you know, Rockcut 2021 race was cancelled by the Deputy Minister of Health at the last hour. Due to the cancellation, there was $523.27 remaining in the budget. With that, Rockcut 2021 donated $273 to Remembering Robbie, a local not for profit that works hard to raise awareness about mental health. There was also a donation made to the Twillingate Fire Department, an amazing group of volunteers who keep our community safe. The money was used to help purchase a stretcher with large wheels, designed specifically for off road (trail) rescues. And, well we kept the $0.27 🙂

Covid Guidelines

At the time of the race, we will follow all government issued Covid guidelines.

Train Hard, Stay Safe, See You in Septempber.
