Run Ridge Run
Date: Saturday, February 23rd, 2019
Distance: 13km | 25km | Kids Race (~1km)
Both races offer challenging climbs, descents and technicality that you’ve come to love from all our CMTS races. The 13km course will skirt around Sasamat Lake on the Buntzen Ridge Trail and glimpse Buntzen Lake. The 25km course will continue on to attack the Diez Vistas Ridge before following the Lakeview Trail, and then grazing Buntzen Lake before the final climb back up and over to the finish at Sasamat Lake.
These trails have been local favourites for years and it is our absolute pleasure to bring you formidable routes that will showcase the beautiful lakes and famous views.
A perfect final training race before tackling the Diez Vista 50km in April.

Both are clearly shown on the course maps above.
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 collapsible cup (available in our merch store), or a homemade version with the top off an empty juicebox.
Poles (hiking / trekking / running poles) are NOT ALLOWED in any distances at Run Ridge Run.
One cutoff on the long course only. Located at the Aid Station which is at approximate kilometer 18. Cutoff time is at 1:30pm or four and a half hours into your run.
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.
