How to get to the start?

From Highway #1 in North Vancouver, take the Lynn Valley Road exit heading north toward the mountains. At the lights just past the big mall, turn left onto Mountain Highway. Follow it to where it ends.

Note: This is a residential area that is heavily used by weekend warriors. Permits are required on the streets close to the start and many others nearby have 2-hour parking restrictions, so expect to walk a few blocks to the run start. Plan to get there at least 15 minutes early so you make the official start. Don't park in a permit area unless you really want a ticket as the parking folks are aggressive.

What to Bring?

Bring your own food. There is a water tap at the start, but be prepared in case it is out of service.

Bring your own official timing system (a watch will do, even if the second hand doesn't work.) There will be a pen and paper to record your split times.

Bring a change of clothes for afterward.


For those left standing, a post event celebration will be held at the Mosquito Creek Grill starting around noon. The Mosquito Creek is about 10 minutes in the Westview Plaza at Westview and Highway #1. Their telephone number is 604-983-3083. Please note that the license at the Mosquito Creek Grill requires that finisher party attendees be 19+ years old.

Other Notes

A lap is 15 kilometers return (approximately 7.5 km up and the same down unless you inexplicably get lost).

If you want to go down in the records, please record your split times (time to top, time back to start) on the sheet provided at the lunch rocks.

This event is not sponsored, sanctioned, permitted or anything else that would qualify it as an official event.

Mountain weather can be unpredictable. Please plan for rain and cool even if it's looking clear when you get up.
