Trail Running Race 11km, 27km, 50km & 100km
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 27, 50, 100km runners must split off and take their own path, while the 11km 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 27, 50 & 100km runners will continue down the Corral Trail taking a left turn onto Sidewinder heading to Cosens Bay parking lot. Here you will take a right under the High Rim Trail arch running past Gingerly down into Bear valley to Broken Bits.
At Broken Bits take a left turn and continue up to the kiosk, here you follow the flags and head onto Three Rings, Pond Loop and your first transition/aid station. You will then be directed around Pond Loop to start your leg burning, soul crushing climbs! 36, HRT, Purple Haze, Jimmy Thang, Big Ed to Dope on a Rope.
Part way through Big Ed you will come to the turn for Dope on A Rope where the 27km will split off to the right and you will continue on your own.
For the remainder of the race you will climb, descend and repeat all the while being treated to amazing single-track trails, views and whispering your love for trail running the entire way to the finish line for the 50km and the halfway point for the 100km racers.
