The Races

Starting at the base of Mt. Maxwell in Burgoyne Bay Provincial Park, athletes climb to the summit of Mt. Maxwell to spectacular views of the Cowichan Bay and Gulf Islands.
New for this year, the VITRS Mt. Washington will boast a short course (~8.5km & 505m elevation gain) and a new long course (~14.5k & over 1000m elevation gain!). You won't want to miss the spectacular views only seen by those reaching the top!
The Ladysmith Vancouver Island Trail Running Series event is sure to impress as the trails here have it all. Beach start, pedestrian tunnel crossing, big climbs, awesome views of Holland Creek and the Waterfall.
All new course is in the works for 2017! Stay tuned for more details!
Staged out of the beautiful Providence Farm property this course climbs steadily for the first half and then gravity gets a hold of you for a fast, flowy second half back to the finish. It packs some sweat trails in the Mt. Tzouhalem mountain bike area!
2nd year for this single-track-packed event, we'll send you up and around the Cobble Hill Mountain Recreation area for some exquisite mountain trails that will surely not disappoint! Race sold out quick in 2016!
