SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2020 – 8:00 AM START
The Lewiston Ultra Shuswap was designed by trail runners and is a point to point 60km ultra marathon trail event connecting the communities of Salmon Arm and Sicamous in the gorgeous Shuswap, British Columbia. The Lewiston Ultra Shuswap is inspired by community & Lewiston James Olstad and is open to solo runners and two & three person relay. With approximately 1800 meters elevation gain, The Lewiston Ultra Shuswap is challenging and rewarding for those attempting their first mountain ultra as well as the seasoned trail runner.
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.
We encourage you to stick around for post race eats & bevies supported by Hyde Mountain Golf Resort. The finish line will also host vendors/sponsors, runners reprieve, raffle prizing, community connection and much more!
