Trail running trip on the West Coast of Canada with timed stages /racing, discovery, and fun.
We start from Vancouver next to the ocean, then experience the deep forests of the Coast Mountains, and work our way up to the Alpine in Whistler. The trip covers hundreds of kilometers and 15,000 meters of gain over the week with daily options.
We discover local animals, food, beers/wine, First Nations culture, and running community.
It is a great mix of traverses and verticals, with the final leg being WAM race (Coast Mountain Trail Series) - Spaces limited!!
Trip is open to both hikers and runners (hikers on modified program) French and English staff.

From Vancouver you are soon into the unique blues and greens of the Pacific Northwest.
A 40km fjord extends north to Squamish and granite wall of The Chief. The ‘Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada’ is famous for rock climbing, mountain bike /foot trails, and kitesurfing. We then go inland to Whistler, top rated mountain resort in North America.
First Nations history and local respect for nature feature throughout.
The trip covers 150-300km with 10,000+ meters gain (depending on your choices).
Don’t let some low mileage days fool you. These trails are challenging with tree roots, scrambling, and damp climate known to the BC coast. The schedule was made so you can push on bigger days while still hitting the trail in between.
