The long course Vertikiller also starts out with a 5km loop around Squid Line and Emma Peal, and past the finish area, before hitting No Time Out on its way up to the peak of Sumas Mountain, but rather than coming straight down to the finish line, it detours down Noah Fear for a quick little bit of vert up Rock Diva on its way over to Time Killer. Then down Time Killer, down World Cup, and then over to your last section of vert before hitting the finish line. This one is a killer with just +1,700m elevation gain.
This short course Vertikiller starts out with a 5km loop around Squid Line and Emma Peal, and past the finish area, before hitting No Time Out on its way up to the peak of Sumas Mountain. From the peak it’s a quick rip down to the finish line. This vertical beast is built for speed, with just 1,100m elevation gain.
A flowy and fun 10K loop around the lower part of Sumas Mountain. This race begins with a quick FSR out-and-back before entering the trails at No Time Out. At the 2.5km mark you’ll hit a short 1km section of vert as you make your way up Time Killer. From there you’re back to the flow, until the finish line.
Aid Station: The main Aid Station will be is located at the 11km point (stocked with water, electrolytes from F2C Nutrition, fruit and other fuel) on the 20km and 30km race routes only. The second Aid Station is located at the 22km point for the 30km route and at the 7km point for the 10km route (only water and electrolytes and First Aid).
Marking: The route will be very well marked with flagging tape and custom ATRC signs. These will be removed by the sweeps that follow the last racer.
Trail Maintenance: The Trail Maintenance Day will be held, details will posted on ATRC IG/Facebook. Trail runners can come out to help repair and improve the trails on the trail maintenance day. They learn new skills like building steps. No experience is required. This is a great way for trail runners to give back to the community. They are also able to donate to the FVMBA.
Orientation Run: We will host one orientation run in Setpember (details will be sent to registered racers closer to the date).
