Runners on the final push up CPR Ridge during the vertical KM.
The start line of the Blood. Big smiles bely the tough course facing these runners.
A Happy Site
With the spectacular Purcell Mountain behind, the finish line and smiling volunteers is a welcome site.
The upper reaches of the Sweat features long ridges with sweet single track. Here a runner pushes through one of the final sections before the long descent to the finish line.
The autumn colours bring the woods alive. Here a runner flies down the final descent to the Sweat's finish line.
We Love Rain
A runner passes course marshals gathered to cheer at the top of Cliffside during the Tears. The moody day made for some spectacular views.
Dark and Early

Runners starting the "long" one, the Sweat - nearly 60 km of beautiful trails await these fleet feet and big smiles.
Out of the Mist
Overall winner, Jorge Maravilla, attains the ridge during the Sweat.
The ridge running on the Sweat offers some beautiful views but also a bit of exposure.
The beautiful Eagle's Eye Restaurant aid station is visible in the distance as runners navigate the rocky single-track along the Terminator Ridge.
The bright running fashion lights up a grey day.
Follow The Trail
Some sections of trail require little trail marking due to the artistry and skill of the trail builders of Golden Cycling Club.
That feeling. That feeling of crossing the finish line after nearly 60 km of Sweat.
