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.

You will grind up hills steep and long, and stride past colourful and historic sites such as Cottonwood House, Lightning Creek, Robber's Roost and Blessing's Grave. The slopes are gentle past Jack of Clubs Lake and Barkerville, but then the route turns into a trail to Richfield which then climbs steeply to Summit Rock. Snow is certain to be encountered before retracing the path to finish up in the quaint but welcoming town of Wells. Participants rave about the course and the high standard of race organization, the enthusiasm of the volunteers, the great scenery and the amazing wildlife!
