After each day of the Ultra, we send out a lil recap of the day with some of our photographers most epic teaser shots!
Dear Friday racers,
We regret to inform you that due to 11th hour circumstances out of our control, our timeline has changed for our vertical events occurring on Friday, September 20th at Kicking Horse Resort.
Our RACE START TIMES have moved UP AN HOUR EARLIER AS FOLLOWS:
Blood (4.5KM vertical km first stage of the Full Pint): Now starting at 3:00PM
Climb (3KM vertical km first stage of the Half Pint): Now starting at 3:00PM
Little Pint (Kids) Race: Delayed to 5:45PM
We've been actively trying to avoid this last minute adjustment to your race day, however we have been ultimately unsuccessful. In the spirit of community and fair play, we must proceed as follows. Please see our new timeline below.
9:00AM - 8:00PM (MST): Race Package Pick-Up for all racers (no change)
2:30PM (MST): All CLIMB runners must be uploaded onto Catamount Chairlift (Kicking Horse Resort)
3:00PM (MST): START BLOOD AND CLIMB races
5:30PM (MST): Finish Line Closes
5:45PM (MST): START Little Pint (Kids) Race
5:30-8:00PM (MST): Taco Feast (Whitetooth Grill)
We deeply apologize for the inconvenience this will cause to our travelling runners. We are understandably concerned about having to move our race up by an hour, and getting this crucial piece of information to all of our Blood and Climb racers. If you know of somebody racing on Friday - please also pass this along!
Travellers: a reminder if you're coming from West of Golden that we are on Mountain Standard Time (ex. if you are coming from Revelstoke, it will take you ~3 hours to get to Golden: 2 hours of driving + 1 hour time change).
Please note: This is an adjustment to FRIDAY ONLY and does not affect the rest of the weekend.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding,
The Golden Ultra crew
We’re feeling pretty dang lucky in regards to this incredible lack of BC wildfire action this summer…yeehaw!!! To celebrate our fresh mountain air and corresponding limber lungs, we want to share the love with all of you by extending a few great deals your way.
If you are running the 60K (Sweat) or the 120K race, there are a few items that are MANDATORY to run with in your pack…
It’s getting to that time where we need to start discussing all things safety in anticipation of our event weekend.
