The Lewiston Ultra is a 56KM solo & relay (two & three person relay accepted with terms & conditions – see REGISTRATION for details) mountain trail event connecting the communities of Sicamous and Salmon Arm in the gorgeous Shuswap, British Columbia. This point to point ultramarathon was designed by trail runners and will journey you through the impressive traverse with approximately 2000 meters elevation gain, rich with prestine single track and incredible viewpoints.

The race will start at the Hyde Mountain Golf Resort and will bring participants into unique private trails on Splatsin land before flowing into the switchbacks of the impressive Larch Hills Traverse. Runners will experience seven distinct sections through out the traverse, pristine single track and remarkable viewpoints overlooking Shuswap and Mara Lake(s). The final kilometres will bring you down the mountain from Larch Hills Nordic Centre and into the inviting South Canoe trails located in Salmon Arm. Once you pop out of the woods, the Finish line is straight ahead and located in Klahani park. We encourage you to stick around for the post race BBQ and savour what is sure to be an unforgettable day.

Registered runners & volunteers will receive a Finish Line BBQ ticket. Additional tickets can be purchased at Race Package Pick Up.

Top three male soloists, top three female soloists and top three 4 person relay teams will each receive one (1) pair of Saucony shoes and one (1) bottle of wine from Larch Hills winery! Mega love to Saucony Canada & Larch Hills Winery for providing prizing for top finishers.


The Lewiston Ultra is inspired by Lewiston James Olstad and community. Lewiston reminded us all to squeeze a little harder, love a little longer and savor the moments we tend to wish away. Lewiston was small and mighty and encouraged community to rise up, persevere and run towards your roar. To learn more about Lewiston Olstad's journey, visit
