About the Nanaimo Race
17km Long Course / 10km Short Course
The Frontrunners VITRS is Vancouver Island’s premiere trail running series that takes runners off the roads and on to some of the most amazing trail networks in Western Canada.
We’re back in Nanaimo for 2023 with a new long course route! Same short course from 2019 (pre-COVID) with all your favourite trails and some climbing just to keep you honest!
Gutbuster Long Course – ~17k
Sport Short Course – ~10k
The course is some of Nanaimo’s best trails! Westwood Lake, Colliery Dam and the beautiful Morrell Nature Sanctuary!
PACKAGE PICK UP
As we tend to get a large number of participants registered and to ease the congestion with parking, we stagger the bib pick up times. Package pick up will take place on the beach area near the dirt parking lot. Drive into Westwood lake park and keep making your way past the boat launch and past the washrooms. We’ll be set up near the play ground.
- Long Course participants can pick up their bibs starting at 9:00am until 10:00am.
- Short Course participants can pick up their bibs starting at 9:45am until 10:30am.
