Manning Park is an absolute treasure in the heart of the Northern Cascade Mountains. Our trail race begins at Lightning Lake and includes a beautiful rollingsingle-track trail along the lake, through mossy trees, and up to the ski hill area that includes stunning views of snowy peaks, including Hozomeen Mountain and many others in the Northern Cascades. Both of our race distances are point-to-point races that begin at Lightning Lake and finish at the Manning Park Ski Hill.
This race includes 2 distance options: 21 km and a 10 km. As with all of our events we also offer a free kids race following the start of the other distances. This is a fun run from 1-1.5 km on the trails and a great chance to bring the whole family and get involved! Pre-registration is not required for the kids race.
Starting from Lightning Lake, this course will take you partially around the lake towards the Skyline I trail where you'll push up the trail to some spectacular mountain views, amongst subalpine flowers and loop back down towards the trail to the ski hill area where your finish line will be. The trails are a mix of technical and non-technical with some steep ascents and descents.
Starting from Lightning Lake, this course will take you partially around the lake towards the ski hill area where your finish line will be. Expect rolling single track trails, gorgeous wildflowers, mossy trees and a rewarding steep push to the finish line.
