Quesnel Recreation Centre
Quesnel, British Columbia
Sunday, May 18, 2014
This 8-stage running relay follows the gradient-rich Highway 26 from the busy resource town of Quesnel to the Cariboo Gold Rush mountain valleys of Barkerville. 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!

Wells, British Columbia
Saturday, September 13, 2014
7 Summits Bike & Hike Challenge in Wells. 7 mountains, 7 stages & 2134 m (7000 ft) of vertical; one day.
We wanted a race that was challenging to do, but still accessible to most people. I think this fits the bill. Our Alpine environment is fragile & irreplaceable. Our intention with this event is to raise awareness about the beautiful Alpine resource that we have in this area. These days, this environment is under a lot of pressure from a variety of recreational & industrial sources. We wanted an event to raise awareness about how to treat it right.
