Barkerville Rush Relay

Rush Relay

Quesnel Recreation Centre, 500 Northstar Rd, Quesnel
British Columbia, V2J 2M5

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!
