Registration closes on:

Friday, August 24, 2018 at 11:00 PM - Pacific Time (US & Canada)

Get ready to explore the Lower Sunshine Coast and its amazing network of trails with a new trail series starting from Pender Harbour and making its way to Gibsons with a variety of trails and courses - a mix of your usual Pacific Northwest trails including roots, rocks, mud and creek crossings. At each race we will have a short course race (5-6km) and a long course race (10-12km) with one aid station out on the course.  

Having just recently brought the first Ultra marathon to the coast, we realised that not everyone wanted to run the longer distances of 50km and 25km. We had a lot of feedback from people who would love to run shorter trail race distances. We have therefore decided to host the Sunshine Coast's first ever trail series  with a short course and a long course option from the top of the Lower Sunshine Coast to the bottom. It will be a great way to give trail runners here and off the coast access to shorter races and races that highlight different trails and different areas across the coast. 

It goes without saying that as with the Puddle Jumper Classic, we truly find the trails here on the coast some of the best in the Pacific Northwest. The trails have pretty humorous names and together with the usual PNW roots, rocks and of course fun twists and turns to navigate, the courses will have some technical elements, but as we want to appeal to the broadest range of racers, we will make every course fun and not too tough. 

The race elevations will range from a bout 200-400mtrs for the short course and 400 - 700mtrs for the long course at each event.

Each race will have one aid station - this will be fully stocked with fruits, snacks and drinks. We are sponsored by Tailwind which you will find at each aid station as well as at the finish line. 

We are just waiting for the last permits to come through for all the races before we can post all the details for each race. These are the dates for the races:
