Registration for this event is required and free. Please sign up here.  In PNWT style, we will be gathering donations to support Kidsport Canada and give the gift of sport this holiday season. 

As per usual, there will be some fun prizes for those who demonstrate festive spirit, whatever that looks like to you ;) ... come show us your festive gear and run your heart out around Buntzen Lake for a good cause. 

Two distances available: 

1 loop or 2 loops of Buntzen Lake: ~10km or ~20k respectfully
This will be a washing machine event. First loop will be done in counter clockwise direction, second loop (if you plan to do so) will be in clockwise direction.

This is a solo supported, fun run event. Please wear appropriate trail running attire and bring a warm change of clothes for post-event. It is expected that all runners carry a minimum 500L of water and minimum 200 calories of fuel. 

In PNWT Style, the route will be marked with spray chalk and cones in any trail breaks, but it is expected that you familiarize yourself with the loop. Check out the event on Strava for the map of the route and to rsvp!

All skill levels welcome!! You will be provided 1.25 hours to run about to varying locations provided on event night, where you may potentially gain a trick or a treat :) .

This gear will be non-negotiable and is for everyone's safety. If you are missing any of these items, you may be asked not to join us on course.

This course in years previous has experienced issues with ground wasp nests. If you are joining, we ask that you come prepared to deal with wasp bites. This is an organized pre run with NO additional aid stations or external First Aid support, please be aware of this and come prepared! Please inform us if you have allergies or issues with bees or wasps.
