5 Peaks races are where I started trail running. Because of this the 5 Peaks race series is one I love to attend and bring out as many people as are willing! This year I am also an ambassador for the 5 Peaks race series, which means anyone is welcome to use my discount code: JENNY to save $5 off race entry, for all of the BC races. This discount code also applies to the kids 3km races.
Over the past year some of the special guests and people I continue to get to see at races have included both of my parents, my sister, friends from near and far, and extended family both official and trail family.
Alice Lake was the first race of the year and took place in April. The course was redesigned this year to include a quick, technical sport course and a Squamish-surprise filled Enduro (longer) course. What exactly is a Squamish-surprise? Well, it is hard to describe all that you can see on the Squamish trails, but in this case the course included a Human sized dog house, multiple rubber chickens, a dog, and a wobbly wooden track. Here’s a taste of what you can except to find on course…
Being that this was the first race of the year there are still 5 more to come! BC has 6, just to keep you on your toes. Hope to see you out soon!
