This RUNNING race is not for beginners. Seriously, we cannot stress this enough!
(The finishing rate for our inaugural year was 60% which is more than we expected. Consider yourself warned.)

The Mighty Quail Trail 100k is a challenging and scenic point-to-point race for adventurous runners who are comfortable on rugged and remote terrain. The primarily singletrack course includes obscure, technical and, occasionally, lonely trails as well as some doubletrack for a reprieve from the relentless, calf-straining climbs and quad-pounding descents. Parts of the course are steep, rocky, dusty and unforgiving. Expect sweeping valley views with massive elevation gain and loss on a variety of trail surfaces as you travel through areas of the South Okanagan unknown to most two-legged creatures.

You may be wondering if we gipped you 1.5km from your promised 100km race, but rest assured, you will get it. The initial portion ventures through some private land and we opted to keep it secret.
