While described as "three days of mountain bliss," the Golden Ultra is, literally, a mountain to climb. If you want it to be the best of times, you're going to want to come prepared with a solid summer of training under your belt.  If you want it to be an epic challenge... be our guest, come off the couch!

Here are some of our favourite coaches (not the afternoon nap kind) and training groups to help you get here in good shape and finish in good spirits!


Spafford Health and ADventure

Derrick has coached a number of runners through the Golden Ultra, including three in the first year.


Challenge by Choice

Jen is a first-class west coast adventurer and major inspiration. She ran the first edition of the race and liked it some much she sent her little training lambs in for the slaughter... except it wasn't.  They loved it, too!



We have a Strava Group if you just want to talk to others going through the same process.
