The Lewiston Ultra is a 60KM solo & relay (2 & 3 person) mountain trail event connecting the communities of Salmon Arm and Sicamous in the gorgeous Shuswap, British Columbia. This point to point ultramarathon will journey you through the impressive traverse with approximately 1800 meters elevation gain, rich with pristine single track and incredible viewpoints.
The race starts at Klahani Park in Salmon Arm and will bring participants into the inviting South Canoe trail system. Runners will journey to the Larch Hills Nordic Chalet & into the gorgeous Larch Hills Traverse to experience seven distinct sections, pristine single track and remarkable viewpoints overlooking Shuswap and Mara Lake(s). The final kilometers will bring you down flowing switchbacks and into unique private trails on Splatsin First Nation land. Once you pop out of the woods, the finish line is a short jaunt on Old Spallumcheen road and into the impressive lake front Hyde Mountain Golf Resort.

In 2019, we are introducing The Lewiston Ultra Wine Tour! Visit three family owned and operated award winning vineyards including Larch Hills Winery (official winery) while in the Shuswap for The Lewiston Ultra (visit the REGISTRATION page for all the deets).
The Lewiston Ultra is inspired by Lewiston James Olstad and community. Lewiston reminded us all to squeeze a little harder, love a little longer and savor the moments we tend to wish away. Lewiston was small and mighty and encouraged community to rise up, persevere and run towards your roar.

Through the efforts of many hands enthusiastically engaged, it is an exceptional honor to host this event within this community.
