About the event

Taking place on the scenic trails of Buntzen Lake, this race provides an excellent introduction to trail running; an exhilarating outdoor activity that adds an extra layer of excitement to your run. When you venture into the world of trail running, be prepared to traverse diverse terrains filled with undulating paths, challenging inclines, and quick descents. As you navigate through the trails, you'll encounter natural obstacles like tree roots and small rocks, making your run more exciting.

Toward the second half of the race, the landscape transforms as you transition from rugged trails to a wide, gravel-surfaced road. The undulating path provides a contrast to the technical challenges faced during the initial leg of the run. As you pick up the pace on this smoother terrain, the exhilaration builds, turning the journey back into a fast and dynamic run toward the finish line.

Get ready for a thrilling journey that combines the beauty of nature with the invigorating rush of a fast-paced return.


Our PA Announcer will keep you informed of the day's schedule and he will play good music to keep you entertained before and after the race.

All runners will receive Finisher medal, there will be race recovery products and refreshments available after the race. 


Part proceeds from the event will go towards supporting KidSport Tri-Cities Foundation.
