MOST scenic ultra race in Canada. Join us for a challenging point to point race that straddles 3 stunning provincial parks and one recreational area in British Columbia, Canada in the Cascades Mountains. See our listings in Trail Runner magazine’s Race Guide. And then get ready!
Stunning alpine views, meadows of wildflowers, good mix of technical and non-technical trails, very little forest service road, point to point, challenging profile, sumptuous aid stations, great organization, enthusiastic volunteers, and a lake at the end for soaking. SERIOUSLY SCENIC.
