The Tenderfoot Boogie Returns to the Sea to Sky
This June 24th is the Tenderfoot Boogie! You can participate in running the beautiful Sea-to-Sky Corridor while you challenge yourself physically with varied terrain endurance running.
The run offers an 80km ultra, 50km endurance, 28km lightening, and a 13km sprint option for participants to choose from. You’ll experience almost every terrain while running this trail between Squamish and Whistler. For the most part, runners will be following the Sea to Sky Trail as they make their way up to Whistler from Squamish. Expect to be challenged and rewarded with stunning views of British Columbia’s outdoors and some easy legs of the race along the way.
Starting in Squamish at Loggers Lane, runners will pass by the Squamish River as they make their way towards Brohm Lake. From there you get a look at the stunningly huge Tantalus mountain range and head towards Cheakamus Canyon and through Brandywine Park. Next up you get to cross a suspension bridge where the Callaghan and Cheakamus Rivers meet. Finally, runners will pass a waterfall near the Whistler Athletes Village, eventually making your way to Meadow Park for the finish.
The Tenderfoot Boogie trail course is mostly off-road so runners should be physically and mentally ready to come up against every terrain you can imagine. Full aid stations will be set up at checkpoints along the way. However, participants are encouraged to bring whatever they need because each individual’s needs will vary.
This trail run is actually relatively easy for an ultra race but it’s still not a walk in the park. You’ll be given ascents and descents, flat parts and climbs but ultimately you start the race at sea level and end at up at 2400ft! Plus, you get to enjoy the amazing Sea to Sky Corridor along the way, what’s not to like about the Tenderfoot Boogie.
