Valley Vertikiller

Trail Race

October 8, 2022

Course Information

30k

The longest Vertikiller course starts out with a 5k loop around Squid Line and Emma Peel, 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  over to your last section of vert before hitting the finish line. This one is a killer with just over 1,700 m elevation gain. View route

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 2.5k mark you’ll hit a short 1k section of vert as you make your way up Time Killer. From there you’re back to the flow until the finish line. View route

Aid Station: The main Aid Station will be is located at the 11k point (stocked with water, electrolytes from F2C Nutrition, fruit and other fuel) of the 20k and 30k race routes only.  The second Aid Station is located at the 22k point of the 30k route, and  at the 7k point of the 10k route (offering only water and electrolytes and First Aid).

Marking: The route will be very well marked with flagging tape. These will be removed by the volunteer sweeps that follow the last racer.

Trail Maintenance: A Trail Maintenance Day will be held by the Abbotsford Trail Running Club: watch for details on the ATRC’s social media channels. No experience is required. This is a great way for trail runners to give back to the community. Another way to give back to the local trail community for their efforts in trail building and maintenance is to join or donate to the Fraser Valley Mountain Biking Association: FVMBA.

Orientation Run: We will host a orientation 20k orientation run (date TBA).  This orientation will be suitable for both 20k and 30k racers. A 10K orientation may also be offered – stay tuned for details.
