5 Epic stages

The TranSelkirks Run is based at the Revelstoke Mountain Resort.  

Daily stages will either start and finish at Revelstoke Mountain Resort or a shuttle will pick you up at the resort and transport you to and from the start and finish of the stage. 

 

The TranSelkirks Run course for 2018 is still being finalized.  It will be approximately 100 miles (160km) over 5 days or 100K (62 miles) spaced out over 3 days. Daily distances may vary between 21km (13 miles) and 42km (26 miles).  The course will cover a combination of single track trails and forest service roads that reach breathtaking views of snowcapped peaks and the Columbia River Valley below.  We have teamed with Parks Canada and the other trail management groups in and around Revelstoke to access the best views, best trails, and best venues for you to enjoy.

THE VIEWS ARE WORTH THE VERT

Be prepared for serious ascents and descents on technical singletrack trails and forest service roads.  Each stage will be different and will provide its own set of challenges.  Some stages are primarily rolling singletrack while others are steep ascents and descents to epic lookout points, peaks, and alpine lakes.  Some sections will be difficult to run, while others are very runnable. Our aim is to take you on some of the most diverse trails Revelstoke has to offer.

Due to ever changing wildlife restrictions, wildfires, and weather related trail closures and other unforeseen limitations, the following information is subject to change up until the day of each stage.  

Here are the TENTATIVE Routes for 2018

Stage 1 "The Real Stoke"

Run from Revelstoke Mountain Resort up the ski hill with the greatest vertical gain in North America to gnarly ridge lines with spectacular views of the Columbia River Valley below.  Finish at Revelstoke Mountain Resort where pools, hot tubs, and a poolside bar will be awaiting you.

Stage 2 "Mount Macpherson"

TSR 2017 Stage 2 Map.jpg

Revelstoke is a WILD place with many protected plant and animal species.  The climate and geography of the area make it possible for these species to thrive, but can also pose serious challenges when large groups of people come in contact with them.  Due to ever changing wildlife restrictions, wildfires, and weather related trail closures and other unforeseen limitations we may have to change routes of particular stages up until the day of the stage.

Stage 3 "Mt. Cartier"

Stage 5 "Mt Revelstoke National Park"

* Mount Revelstoke National Park is a natural wilderness environment which is subject to public access closures during emergency conditions, such as wildfires (including brushfires and lightning-caused canopy fires), flooding events and windstorms. Areas of the park may also, on occasion be closed due to the active management of grizzly bears. During the 2016 event, the race course was shortened due to the presence of unpredictable juvenile grizzly bears on the course. The safety of the public (including event participants) and protection of the park's bear population are Parks Canada's priorities, and the race may be postponed, shortened, re-routed or cancelled on short notice if circumstances require it.

See below for images of views and terrain from sections of the course.
