Alumni Spotlight: Celebrating our 5 Year Runners

Alumni Spotlight: Celebrating our 5 Year Runners

It’s graduation season, so we thought it timely to celebrate a small crew of extraordinary humans that have been crushing the Golden Ultra since it’s inaugural start in 2015. This veteran alumni comes from all walks of life, but there are two things that they all have in common: their infectious zest for epic adventure, and their 5th consecutive registration for the Golden Ultra!!!

Crash Course: The Tears

Crash Course: The Tears

Similar to our Cruise race, our Tears participants will start in Spirit Square and run along the Rotary Trail & Kicking Horse Trail roadway on the north & east sides of the Kicking Horse & Columbia Rivers.  The first 2 km of this race is a cruisey road run, until runners cross the single-lane bridge over the Columbia River and veer off to the trails of the CBT mainline network above the Columbia River.

Training for the 120 as a parent: A moment of reflection, by Jan Kotyk

For those of you who don’t know Jan, he is a former Golden resident who has recently moved to the coast with his patient wife Erin, their adorable son Asher, and their pup Shivers. He is a doting dad, riotous runner, and hilarious addition to any race or bbq - if you’ve been to an Ultra, you’re likely to have run into Jan gleefully smiling as he crushes the Full Pint year after year.
