Rubble Creek Classic — Sept. 28

This is one of the most scenic mountain trail runs in Sea to Sky, if not the entire west coast. Competitors start at the entrance to the Cheakamus Lake trail and run up the side of the mountain to the Helm Creek Flats, circle behind Black Tusk on the cinder flats, and then down about 12 km of the Rubble Creek trail to the Garibaldi Lake parking lot. The distance is about 25 km, and includes close to 1,000 metres of sometimes technical climbing at the start, followed by a knee-clobbering 1,300 metres of descending.

Registration for this event is limited to just 80 runners, so early registration is recommended. The cost is $39, plus a $3 entry fee. Online entry closes at midnight on Sept. 18. All participants get a technical running shirt, and proceeds go to Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Visit for registration and more details.
