O2X Grouse Mountain

flaik Event Buttons

O2X takes trail running OFF TRAIL. A professionally-designed course seeking out natural-challenges: riverbeds, ravines, rockfaces and timed scrambles through brutally rugged terrain. Disclaimer: this is NOT the Grouse Grind.

Dubbed "The Peak of Vancouver", Grouse is one of the premier mountains of the Pacific Range. The O2X Summit Challenge will take an already notoriously grueling landscape and transform it into a technical, rugged and brutally primal trail race. Starting at just under 300 meters, racers will trek for 8+ kilometers over multi-pitch rock scrambles, rivers, steep glades, streams and other naturally occurring challenges before reaching the peak where BaseCamp will be located. Expect your lungs to be pounding out of your chest and your legs to be screaming for mercy when you reach the summit at an altitude of 1,000+ meters. Not running at Grouse? Take the Super Skyride lift to the finish to cheer on racers and be part of O2X BaseCamp - an environmental Festival with live music, local food and beverage vendors, spectator activities and experiential learning focused on increasing Human Performance.
