Overview

BRAND NEW FOR 2022! You’re going supersonic, to the moon, all the way to the top of Blackcomb Mountain!

The views are INSANE. You can almost taste the glacial fresh environment as you’ll be staring straight into the abyss of the Spearhead Range as you top out on this run. Bring your camera along as you’re gonna want to document all of this one. The elevation profile might leave you aghast right now, but we promise it’ll all be worth it come race day!

Registration Prerequisites

25k: None

​Mandatory Gear List:

25k: None

10 Essentials: We encourage everyone to always carry the 10 Essentials for backcountry safety in your pack - whether you’re out training or adventuring on your own or with friends, or participating in one of our extensively marked races, you can never predict what might happen. Learn more about the 10 Essentials in this article by North Shore Rescue.

​Cupless:

In our effort to reduce waste, all our races are now cup-free, meaning you'll need to pack along your own cup 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 cutting the top off an empty juicebox.
