You heard it here: we've got NEW COURSES planned for 2019!!!!

The cat is out of the bag….we’ve applied for NEW courses in 2019!!!!! The east side of the valley has long been less charted territory, so with great excitement and anticipation we look forward to featuring some of the incredible new and rehabilitated trails located on the indomitable Mount 7.  

Our Day 1 Blood and Climb races will remain at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, but the Day 2 Sweat and Conquer races will move to the east side of the valley on Mount 7 (still challenging… possibly more challenging!). Day 3 Tears and Cruise races will move to the CBT mainline network on the west side of the valley (soooo delicious).

… and if that wasn’t good news enough, we’re also planning to open a 120 km event (read: link our two amazing 60 km courses into one mega figure 8) in 2019. Hold on to your horse-power kids, because Golden is ready to get real!

Because we know you do love what we’ve got going on already and might get a bit of FOMO, we intend to maintain the current courses that you’ve come to know and love on each EVEN numbered year (back to the T4 ridge for the Sweat and Moonrakers for the Conquer in 2020) - and feature the new course routes on odd-numbered years (2019 and 2021).

Registration for 2019 will open on September 24 and super early-bird pricing is in effect until September 30: use the code iamsopumped to get a head start on the field.

… all right… discuss… comment section below!
