WE ARE PROUDLY A CUP-FREE EVENT!

For all races and events, please bring your own reusable cup/container. Thank-you for being a part of our commitment to the environment! BONUS: For this race, you'll be receiving the uber-cool UltrAspire cup souvenir.



Description:

JUST RELEASED! 
A new course that features some gnarly singletrack, and hardcore hills up doubletrack trails.  The Sport course has a nice selection of not too technical, and some more technical sections to test your fast feet.  The Enduro course has a super technical add-on that takes you running past 2 beautiful alpine lakes, if you have the opportunity to look up as you dodge hundreds of roots along the way.


 

Where:

Cypress Mountain
6000 Cypress Bowl Rd - West Vancouver

 

Directions:

26 minute drive from downtown Vancouver. Take the Trans-Canada (Highway 1) westbound towards Horseshoe Bay, get off at Exit 8, and follow the road to Cypress Bowl. Nearing the top of the mountain, there will be a fork in the road, the Alpine area is straight ahead of you (location for 2014 & 2015 5 Peaks), however you will need to turn RIGHT to the Nordic area, and follow the parking lot to the very end.

The Start/Finish is moved to the NORDIC area.
