Race Details

We have changed the registration on Ultrasignup, so that anyone registering between now and August 20th will receive the best pricing and will be added to a waitlist. On August 21st, those who registered, will be emailed, and will have 7 days to process their payment. If the payment is not completed, they will be removed from the waitlist and be required to register under the current pricing, which may have increased.

Our decision to host the event is being pushed back to August 21st to maximize the chances of us being able to hold our annual Fall Races. We will decide on August 21st on whether the races will be held. Ultimately, we are abiding by government Covid guidelines and restrictions, so the decision will be beyond our control.

Should the event be cancelled after the payments have been processed, participants will be given the option to roll over their race entry to 2022 or receive a 50% refund on the race entry.
To receive a t-shirt, you must have registered by August 31st. T-shirts will be ordered on September 1st. If the race is cancelled after this date, participants will still receive their paid shirt.

Due to limited parking at Centennial Park, we may be required to move the 10Km race to Sunday, October 3rd. This decision will be primarily based on numbers and will be communicated as soon as registration numbers reach 100, or by September 4th (whichever comes first).

*Please note that registration processing fees are non-refundable.

Course Info

All races will begin and finish at the cabins in Centennial Park.

The 10K event will be a single loop course that heads from the cabins into Shuniah Mines and back.

The 25K event will be run on an out and back course that heads from the cabins into Shuniah Mines, tours Shuniah Mines, crosses back into centennial and ultimately to the aid station that will be located in the Cascade Conservation area parking lot. Runners will receive aid if needed and head on back. (The 25K Course involves over 2000 Feet of climbing in the out and back course)

The 50K event will be have a 9hr cutoff with a 4.5 hr cutoff at the 25Km mark. It will be two out and backs of the 25K course. We wanted to make this race as much fun single track as possible. The course we have set is 80% fun single track. We also like the idea of seeing the leaders and the camaraderie of an out and back style where you get the opportunity to encourage the other runners.

Local time: 7:54 PM
