Mt. Seymour - Race 3

0.00

June 16, 2018

ATTENTION RUNNERS!

Due to a high level of snow still covering the Mt Seymour trails, we will be moving our race for this Saturday, June 16th to Golden Ears. The safety of our runners is our #1 concern and we cannot hold a race safely on the Mt Seymour trails at this time.

Please see the previous Golden Ears event page for more race day details. The only change will be that to switch things up for our regular racers, we will be running the course BACKWARDS from the normal direction.
