We both love our global trail community and with that in mind, we decided to host the Lower Sunshine Coast’s first ultra marathon.
2017 was the first year and it will now be an annual event starting and finishing at Cliff Gilker Park in Roberts Creek. There’s an option to run a 50km or a 25km on the beautiful B&K and Sprockids trails.
We might be a little biased living on the coast and running these trails every minute we get, but we truly find the trails here to be some of the best in the Pacific Northwest. The course has tree roots, rocks and of course puddles to jump across. The course is technical and has some big climbs to test your power hiking skills. As you climb higher and higher think of the downhill you can look forward to flying down.
The 50km has an elevation of about 8,000ft and the 25km an elevation of 4,000ft. It’s a loop course and we will be working on making both the 50km and the 25km even better for 2018.
The 50km has 3 aid stations and the 25km has 2 aid stations – they 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.
The 50k starts at 7am and the 25k starts at 9am.
