Recreation sports events in British Columbia showcase the province’s beautiful and diverse landscape in epic displays of athleticism and sport.

Sporting action happens year round; watch top athletes compete on ski hills, in mountain bike parks, along roads and everywhere in between. Many occur annually and include a festival component with entertainment, activities and exhibitions for visitors and athletes.

Watch as skiers and snowboarders send tricks down Whistler’s snow-covered slopes at the Telus World Ski & Snowboard Festival. Those same mountains play host to vertical-defying freeride and downhill mountain bikers in summer at the Crankworx Freeride Mountain Bike Festival. Take part in the Sun Run – Canada’s largest running event – or trade shoes for cowboy boots at the Williams Lake Stampede, an annual display of BC’s cowboy culture and heritage.

There’s extreme obstacle racing (like the challenging Tough Mudder), marathon races that wind along scenic BC roads and cities, cycling grand prix races, multiple sport events, and beach volleyball tournaments among others.

For more details on recreation sports events, check out the links to information and/or product listings from business or service providers below. Or stop by a local Visitor Centre to find out what events are happening in specific locations.

Follow in the footsteps of the first adventurers to explore the summit area of Mount Revelstoke. Four years before the park was established in 1910, the Revelstoke Mountaineering Club convinced the Mayor of Revelstoke to create a hiking trail from town to the summit. Later, the trail was extended to include Eva Lake, named for club member Eva Hobbs, who was the first to see the lake. Every August since 1976, visitors have joined a Parks Canada interpreter for the famed Eva Lake Pilgrimage (12 km round trip). Together they photograph and learn about the wildflowers in full bloom and celebrate the relationship between the City of Revelstoke and Mount Revelstoke National Park. A Mount Revelstoke Centennial Event!
