All 4 distances will have a challenging route that starts with a single-track climb, up to a beautiful full view south looking down Kalamalka lake.
You will whined along a ridge with a stunning view of Kalamalka Lake before you all start another short climb. This is where the 25, 50, 100km runners must split off and take their own path, while the 10km runners continue to the head around the mountain all the way to The Wall, where you will enjoy a nice climb and climb, oh and did I mention the climb. At the top you will have a stunning view of the Cosens Bay area and the trails your crazy fellow runners have continued onto.
The 25, 50 & 100km runners will continue down the Corral Trail taking a left turn onto Side winder heading to Cosens Bay parking lot. From here you will take a right under the High Rim Trail arch running past Gingerly down into Bear valley to Beaver Basher.
