TRAIL RUNNING AROUND ROSSLAND 50K AND 25K ROUTES

T

HE 50K/25K OFFERS a challenging point to point route that traverses along the beautiful “Seven Summits,” a high alpine ridge trail and one of the premier trails in the West Kootenay Region. The 50k includes peaks along the way, 360 degree views and finishes with 12km of single track once reaching the base of Red Mountain. Runners can easily break down this traverse for various options to distance and difficulty. The 25k route follows the Seven Summits trail until reaching Southside Road, which leads runners to the base of Red Mountain Resort. Please note: the trail cruises at an average elevation of almost 2000m (6560ft). Runners must be comfortable being self supported, and prepared for remote mountain conditions and a long day.

10K ROUTE

5K ROUTE

SHOWCASING SOME OF THE nicest single track Rossland has to offer, this 10k route includes a great mix of smooth, old-school cross-country single track, rooty and rocky technical sections and spectacular views. An intermediate route, it starts and finishes from Centennial trail parking lot and leads runners up rolling hills and down swoopy, single-track descents and is a perfect way to experience the diversity of trails conveniently located near town. This is the course of the 10k Golden City Grind.

A fun beginner route, runners will enjoy a few short, but steep climbs on Moe’s and views of the reservoir. After a bit of climbing, Caldera, a fun downhill connecting trail, awaits and eventually leads back to Centennial trail where you’ll cross over to Drifter trail to soak up some super fun and smooth single track that will lead you back in the direction to where you started. This is a beauty beginners’ route with a great mix of scenic, easy terrain.

OSSLAND IS A TRAIL RUNNING Mecca, with over 200km of professionally maintained and labeled single-track trails. There is something for everyone, from easy beginner loops to the world renowned 30km Seven Summits Trail. Rossland is host of the challenging, point-to-point Broken Goat 12km, 25km and 50km race finishing at RED Mountain Resort, which takes place in July of each year and is part of the Canadian Sky Running Series. The fun Golden City Grind takes place every September, with 5k and 10k options, as well as 1k and 2k races for kids. Located in an ancient volcanic crater, the trails surrounding Rossland feed back into the funky downtown core. You’ll find a variety of accommodation options, boutique shops, a cool vibe and lots of restaurants and cafes. It’s a great jump-off point for several days of exploring the trails only a short walk away.
