With the advent of the summer season - it's looking HOT out there - and the grand summer opening of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, we're stoked to announce some orientation runs on the Golden Ultra courses.
Sunday, June 7 - "The Tears" Course: Meet at corner of Bowles Evans Drive and Spruce Drive, we will run the "single track" portion of the course (approximately 15 km).
Sunday, July 5 - "The Sweat" Course: Meet at the CBT Mainline Trailhead (on Kicking Horse Trail & Golf Course Road). We'll run the "bottom half" of the course, approximately 20 km.
Sunday, July 12 - "The Sweat" Course: Meet at Cedar Lake parking area (Tallis FSR at Cedar Lake Campground). We'll run the "top half" of the course, approximately 30 km.
Monday, August 3 - "The Blood" Course: Meet at the Gondola base at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. This will be your only chance to try this course uphill until race day as the ski hill does not allow uphill traffic for safety reasons.
All orientation runs begin at 9:00 am sharp, at the designated location. Runs are free and are not limited to Golden Ultra registered runners. There will be a brief course description at the start and then we will set out as a group - if you're especially slow or especially fast we'll try to make accommodations so that you also get the benefit of the run.
We've posted all these runs as events on our Facebook Page - RSVP, post your questions and photos, and invite others!
