BC Ultra Trail Running Series – Great runs to consider

Hello all,

As the 2011 season is start­ing to gain momen­tum, I wanted to men­tion the BC Ultra Trail Run­ning Series (BCUTS) for those of you who are inter­ested in a little friendly series com­pe­ti­tion, or who are look­ing for other great local races.  The next race in the series is Diez Vista on April 9, 2011. This is a beau­ti­ful and chal­leng­ing 50km run and some­thing to con­sider if you weren’t lucky in the KKNSTR lot­tery, or if you’re nicely ahead of your 50km train­ing for July.  For more info, check out the link or con­tact Martha Grant or George For­shaw.

Happy trails,

Kelsy.

How trail running changes lives

The Geor­gia Straight recently pub­lished an arti­cle about trail run­ning on the North Shore, with inter­views from Nicola Gilder­sleeve, Mar­i­anne Stark and Kelsy Trigg. All three tell their expe­ri­ences of how they were drawn to the sport and how it con­tin­ues to fire a pas­sion in them. You can read the story here.
