Survival of the Fittest

Saturday, May 26th, 2018 - 18km / NEW TBC 35km

Date: Saturday, May 26th, 2018
Distance: 18km / NEW TBC 35km

Overview

A fantastic loop from the incredibly scenic Quest University lands in Squamish, BC. A sustained climb off the start will bring you to a waterfall within the first few kilometers. As you continue to ascend the views become ever more impressive as you gaze across the valley at the dominant Tantalus Mountain Range. Once you top out on The Climb Trail you’ll have predominantly sweet singletrack all the way home.

Local classics such as STP, Somewhere Over There, Hoods In The Woods, and Blaine’s Connector are all hemmed in between our two bridge crossings over Darwin’s and Carpenter’s Son. Revel in the theory of evolution as you cross Darwin’s early on, and test your faith above the rapids on Carpenter’s Son near the end.

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.

Pre-Run:
PNW Trailrunners (Gareth & Jeanelle) are hosting an independent pre-run of the course on Sun, April 30 based out of Quest University. Visit the PNW Trailrunners site for more information and registration. Suggested $5 donation to Squamish SAR.

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 kids juicebox.

Package Pickup:
Friday May 25th: 4pm – 6pm at Escape Route Squamish
Saturday May 26th: TBA at our race start

ID MUST BE SHOWN TO PICKUP YOUR RACER PACKAGE. BIBS CANNOT BE PICKED UP BY ANYONE BUT THE REGISTERED RUNNER. NO EXCEPTIONS.
