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.
Aid Station: One aid station 5km into the 13km race 10km into the 18km race

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.
