local races

We are super fortunate to have a huge amount of trail races in the Sea to Sky corridor and a little further afield. Adventures awaits everywhere! But many races sell out quickly, so get in there early to avoid disappointment!

 
 

Coast Mountain Trail Series

A collection of spectacular, professionally run trail races in world class destinations around Vancouver + the Sea to Sky.

Races are scheduled throughout the Spring through to Fall but tend to sell out QUICK! If you are not signed up yet you may have missed your chance this year, but they are alway in need of volunteers, so why not help out on race day to see what all the fuss is about!

The Puddle Jumper Classic, 25/50k
Sunshine Coast, June 8, 2019

The Puddle Jumper Classic is the Sunshine Coast’s first ultra-marathon. Started in 2017 it has quickly grown to be a loved and maybe a little hated course by a lot of runners. It lives up to its name with plenty of puddles and creeks to cross throughout the course. Most of the course is on single trail with rocks, roots and creeks to keep you on your toes.

Tenderfoot Boogie, 50m, 50k, 28k, 13k
Squamish/Whistler, June 22, 2019

These events are, for the most part, off-road, and at times can be challenging. Although relatively easy as ultra races go, this is not a stroll in the woods. You must be physically and mentally prepared to encounter every possible terrain imaginable. Our aid stations will be fully-loaded, but you cannot wholly depend on them. Each individual’s need vary, and only you will know your needs.

Rotary Brandywine Boogie, 10k
Whistler, September 21, 2019

A beautiful 10km trail run from Cheakamus to Cal-Cheak Camp Ground on the Sea To Sky trail. The race is point to point, mainly on level gravel tracks with some single track and overall downhill. You will cross a river (on a bridge), run through diverse landscapes and generally be blown away by the natural beauty.
