The Valley Vertikiller is a challenging point-to-point trail race offering 25K and 16K distances. Plus, we've now split the 16K in two, so you can share the joy.
The 25K is a killer race with nearly 1,500m of elevation gain. The 16K is a vertical beast with over 1,100m. If 1,100m of elevation gain over 16K seems a little too crazy, we now offer a relay option. Leg 1 of the relay will take on the Centennial Trail to the end of Knob Gobbler, for a total of 10kms and 1,000m elevation gain. Leg 2 will continue the 16K route with a quick rip down Squidline, 6kms of flowy downhill.
Both distances feature a grueling ascent up to the peak of Sumas Mountain, raging creeks and picturesque Chadsey Lake; and beautiful views of the Fraser Valley throughout the flowy and technical descent. With the majority of the course on single-track trails, this race will definitely test your skills.
This race is brought to you by those dirtbags at the Abbotsford Trail Running Club.
