THE ROUTE

The Lewiston Ultra was designed by trail runners and is a point to point 56km Ultramarathon trail event connecting the communities of Sicamous and Salmon Arm in the gorgeous Shuswap, British Columbia. The Lewiston Ultra is inspired by Lewiston James Olstad and is open to solo runners and relay teams. With approximately 2000 meters elevation gain, The Lewiston Ultra is challenging and rewarding for those attempting their first mountain ultra as well as the seasoned trail runner.

The race will start at the Hyde Mountain Golf Resort and will bring participants into unique private trails on Splatsin land before flowing into the switchbacks of the impressive Larch Hills Traverse. Runners will experience seven distinct sections through out the traverse, pristine single track and remarkable viewpoints overlooking Shuswap and Mara Lake(s). The final kilometres will bring you down the mountain from Larch Hills Nordic Centre and into the inviting South Canoe trails located in Salmon Arm. Once you pop out of the woods, the Finish line is straight ahead and located in Klahani park.

Estimated Race Completion Time:  5.5 hrs– 11 hrs
