North American Mountain Running Championships come to Golden

2015 NACAC Mountain Running Championships at Cypress Mountain.

2015 NACAC Mountain Running Championships at Cypress Mountain.

Golden and the Golden Ultra will host the North American Mountain Running Championships as part of the "Cruise" 10 km event on Sunday, September 24.

The event was last hosted in Canada at Cypress Mountain in 2015.

Canadian athletes will appreciate the opportunity to compete on home soil against what is traditionally a very strong American team.  

Team selections will be announced by the end of July and runners will arrive in Golden on Friday, September 22, giving them the opportunity to watch the first two stages of the Golden Ultra, before bringing their firepower to the 10 km event on Sunday.

While the other events of the Golden Ultra may provide more challenge to the elite runners, the international mountain running regulations require events of 10-12 km for the NACAC championships.  

We're looking forward to hosting this major international event and showing runners from across North America the beautiful trails and mountains that our small town has to offer!
