Overview


Welcome to the newest footrace in beautiful West Kelowna! Our race will appeal to people with varying experience levels as we offer three distances to choose from. It is a perfect pre-season race to test your legs for any longer race goals you have coming up or a great goal to keep you motivated and training over winter. Our event is put on for trail runners by a local trail runner and ultra running coach, so you can expect a challenging, fun and quality experience.

All three race courses provide runners with magnificent views. The trails in Rose Valley are referred to as the "hidden gem" in West Kelowna and it's really hard to give our course justice in a write up. You'll just have to trust us and get your butt out there to see for yourself.

There has never before been an event held in Rose Valley Regional Park and we feel privileged to bring you a memorable running experience here. All three courses are 90% single track with technical bits and ample climbing.

The 16k loop will treat runners to a variety of terrain and the trail eventually drops down and carries on along side beautiful Rose Valley Reservoir. The 25k runners will be challenged with undulating climbs through-out and one monster climb under the infamous "Rock Bridge" where their reward will be stunning views and a fast, fun, switchback descent. Before runners can descend, however they have to detour off trail to "T-junction" where they will grab their 'token' out of a pail which they must turn in at the finish line to earn their finish and prize.
