Don’t miss this one…
This is a beautiful trail run in Powell River, on a dead flat 13.2 kilometre wheelchair accessible trail around the very edge of the lake. It starts and finishes at a Provincial Park campground where you can stay if you like to camp. Where else in coastal BC can you run on 13+ kilometres of wide manicured trail around a lake without even a bump? The biggest single gain of elevation — The Hill — is about 8 to 10 vertical feet!!!!! For those wanting to run a shorter distance, there is the Anthony Island 7k — an out & back utilizing the last 3.5k of the full lake trail — again, dead flat. Proceeds will be donated to Special Olympics.

This year’s race is on Thanksgiving weekend. What better way to work up a big appetite for your special dinner? It’s also a great way to spend time in nature with visiting family and friends, who can walk, bike or run or just come relax at the beautiful park.
