Trailstoke Day 3: Mountain Marathon
Join us for this stunning mountain marathon in Parks Canada's Mount Revelstoke National Park. In partnership with Parks Canada, 5Peaks successfully hosted this inaugural event in September 2015 - the first ever backcountry trail running competition in a a Canadian national park.
Fullstoke is last year's Glacier Grind course, only shorter by a few km in order to avoid road crossings. The race starts and finishes at 575m asl at the Nels Nelsen Chalet. It climbs to 2192m asl along the 43.6km course including out and back sections at Jade Pass and Eva Lake. The highest elevation along the course is 2192m asl.
