Cap Crusher

Saturday, March 17th, 2018 - 12km, 24km, kids' race

Date: Saturday, March 17th, 2018
Distance:  12km | 24km | Kids’ race (~1km)

Overview

A celebration of spring. A quad-crushing cruise around the upper Capilano Canyon, primarily on the west side of Cleveland Dam. If you are unfamiliar with this trail system you will most certainly be surprised at the beauty and challenge of the Cap Canyon network. Your legs might not like us but given a clear day your eyes will be continually darting between the terrain underfoot, the river to your side, and the scenery overhead as The Lions tower up above our start/finish line.

2018 features BRAND NEW DISTANCES and entirely REDESIGNED COURSES!

Cupless:
All CMTS races are now cup free events, meaning you’ll need to pack along your own source for fluids at aid stations and at the finish line. Here are two suggestions: A packable style bottle, or a homemade version in which you simply lop the top off of an empty kid’s juicebox. ​

Poles (hiking / trekking / running poles) are NOT ALLOWED in any distances at Cap Crusher.

10 Essentials:
Although all our courses are excellently marked, you can never predict what can happen during a race. We recommend learning about the 10 essentials for backcountry safety and bringing them in your running pack. Learn more about the 10 essentials in this article by North Shore Rescue.
