Orientation Runs 

Date and Location

Orientation runs are a great way to meet fellow racers, add some miles to your training plan, and preview sections of the race course.  There will be 2 orientation runs offered in July (subject to snow melt!). Additionally, for 2024, we will be joined by Altra to offer shoe demos for the runs! 
No pre-registration is required for these runs - just come to the designated meeting location and check in with the run leader.  Racers should have sufficient water and calories as no aid stations are provided for orientation runs.  

July 27 - We will be doing an out-and-back section of the Heather trail, meeting at the parking area at Blackwall Peak (off Highway 3, across the road from Manning Park Resort). Distance is up to 44 km, although you may turn back at any point depending on what your training plan calls for.  Start time 8:30 AM.

July 28 - Skyline I Trail from the Strawberry Flats Warming Hut (up Gibson Pass Road, near the Manning Park Ski Hill), finishing at Lightning Lake Day Use Area (the final stretch of the race). 19 km total.  Start time 8:30 AM.
