Ed: This is old and needs to be brought up-to-date.   I believe the height of Grouse Mountain is unchanged though.

Grouse Mountain towers 1,250m (4,100') above the city of Vancouver. Rice Lake is in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (LSCR) not far above sea level. The challenge of Bill's Great Peak Ascent is to have a good time getting from Rice Lake to the peak of Vancouver and back!

The run is held entirely on trails that range from beginner-friendly to technical. It has been designed to be a great training opportunity for the 67K STORMY trail run in Squamish in mid-August as well as a fun event in itself. On a clear day, you can expect awesome views of Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and Mount Baker, Washington.
