How to Get There

From Vancouver, take Highway 1 to Hope, then Highway 3 (Crowsnest Highway) toward Princeton and stop in Manning Park. It takes about 2.5-3 hours to get there. Allow plenty of time. See Crew and Relay Team Driving Instructions.

Pacers

120 milers and 70 milers can have pacers.
Pick up a bib at any package pickup. Racers over 60 years may have a pacer for full route.
Pacers can run with 120 milers from Bonnevier on provided you have checked in with the aid station; one pacer at a time (you could have one pacer do miles 60 to 90 and then another pacer do miles 90 to 120).
If you want to be a pacer and don't have a partner, or you need a pacer, sign up on this Pacers Board for 2019. 

After the Race

Join us for a barbecue at Lightning Lake, soak in the lake, go to the Loon Lagoon for a shower and hot tub, or just hang out at the lake before the awards presentation.
