  • 11K and 15K distances on some great trails not far from downtown Vancouver
  • low-key familiarization run on the Enduro (15K) and Sport (11K) courses of the 5Peaks season finale race at Buntzen Lake
  • faster and slower pace groups on each course, so there's something for everyone


  • trail runners of any ability who would like to discover some popular trails, but might not want to go it alone
  • trail runners who are registered or thinking of signing up for the popular 5Peaks race at Buntzen Lake on Saturday 25 September 2010.  Get to know the trail you will race on so you can kick some butt on race day!

When: Saturday 4 September 2010 at 9:00am

  • Please read the Release of All Claims. By participating in this event you agree to the terms of the Release of All Claims.


  • the CFA Fluffy Bunny and the 5Peaks Buntzen events use the identical trails.  We thought this would be a nice way to contribute another low-key event to the trail running community
  • Can't make it on the 4th, but would like to pre-run the courses?  Print-off detailed descriptions for Sport and Enduro courses.
  • Want to lead a group? Group leaders receive a free entry into the Club Fat Ass and 5Peaks event of their choice between now and the end of 2010 ($75 value!) First come, first served.  If interested, contact Sibylle

Carpool from Vancouver

Hey everyone! I'm hoping I can find some fine soul who's going to be driving this Saturday from Vancouver and wouldn't mind some company for the ride out and back. I'm really good at chipping in for gas/buying lunch afterwards :) I can easily meet anywhere along the skytrain line(s), or if Hastings/Commercial area is on the way for you, here I am.

Ideally, if you can tolerate me, I'd be grateful for a repeat of the above on event day, the 25th, however there's no commitment.

If this is you, text (778 eight4eight 9563) or facebook (http://www.facebook.com/onadistantshore) me and we'll get to details.
