Golden Ultra

September 21, 2018 - 7:00am to September 23, 2018 - 4:30pm

The Golden Ultra is a three-day stage running race (or relay) in Golden, BC, Canada.  Runners may participate in all three stages as a solo or part of a relay, or may register for any single or combination of two stages separately.

If you're not quite up to the full 85 km of mountain bliss, you can opt for our "Half Pint" option of Climb, Conquer and Cruise.  The same registration rules apply - register for any one, two, or all three!

Day 1 - Blood

Run uphill until you are sure you're sweating blood.  The first day of the 3-day Golden Ultra involves an unrelenting uphill challenge.  This one is going to hurt.

Blood - 5 km

Climb - 3 km

Day 2 - Sweat

You're going to sweat.  "Enjoy" one big and beautiful loop with fantastic mountain views.  The full distance option starts in the Town of Golden and summits Kicking Horse Mountain Resort before returning to town again.

Sweat - 60 km

Conquer - 30 km

Day 3 - Tears

Tears of happiness or tears of pain?  This last day of "flat," "flowy," and "fun" trail may be the best of times... or it may be the worst. 

Tears - 20 km

Cruise - 10 km
