THE ROUTE

The Lewiston Ultra 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.
