About the Race
The Mighty Quail Trail 100k is a challenging and scenic point-to-point race for adventurous runners who are comfortable on rugged and remote terrain. The primarily singletrack course includes over 4,500m (15,000ft) elevation gain on obscure, technical and, occasionally, lonely trails. While some doubletrack sections provide a reprieve from the relentless, calf-straining climbs and quad-pounding descents. Parts of the course are steep, rocky, dusty and unforgiving. Expect sweeping valley views with massive elevation gain and loss on a variety of trail surfaces as you travel through areas of the South Okanagan virtually unknown to most two-legged creatures.
This race is not for beginners. Seriously, we cannot stress this enough! (The finishing rate for our inaugural year was 60% which is more than we expected. Consider yourself warned.) And we know our 18 hour cut-off is stingy, but we won't be bribed or bullied into changing it so don't even try.
There will be aid on the course, but it will be more limited than many races. Plan to be self-sufficient in terms of hydration and nutrition, and prepared to go 3-5 hours between aid stations.
