The Puddle Jumper Classic is the Sunshine Coast’s first ultramarathon! Started in 2017 it has quickly grown to be a loved and maybe a little hated course by a lot of runners. It lives up to its name with plenty of puddles and creeks to cross throughout the course. Most of the course is on single trail with rocks, roots and creeks to keep you on your toes.
It's a loop course starting and finishing in Cliff Gilker Park in Roberts Creek, BC.
The 50k has an elevation of 6972ft/2125m and the 25k has an elevation of 5339ft/1627m.
