Run Ridge Run

Saturday, February 26, 2022 - 13KM, 25KM, Kids' Race


Date: Saturday, February 26, 2022
Distance: 13KM, 25KM, Kids' Race

Both races offer challenging climbs, descents and technicality that you've come to love from all our CMTR 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 for tackling the Diez Vista 50km in April.

Kids Race:
The Kids Race is about 1km in length, and most runners are aged between 3 - 10, though we welcome all kids to participate. It's not timed, is non-competitive and purely for the fun of all involved, but with special kids’ bibs, finisher stickers to collect, and random draw prizes. Registration is a $5 donation, and is available online, or on race morning, with all proceeds going to Butterfly Run Vancouver.



Ascent: 600m / 2000ft
Descent: 600m / 2000ft

The 13km course will skirt around Sasamat Lake on the Buntzen Ridge Trail and glimpse Buntzen Lake.

Bag Check: There will be a tent at the start/finish line to leave a bag, but it is not monitored so please label your bag and do not leave any valuables.

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.

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

Cutoffs: 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.

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.

The Run Ridge Run 25k race will be a Qualifier for UTMB 20k or 1 UTMB point.
