We have made the incredibly difficult decision to pause on Shuswap Ultra for 2024. This is not good bye. This is a pause; to re-evaluate what makes sense for the Shuswap community and what supports the run communities and trail system.
Please know, this decision did not come lightly. We’ve navigated multiple distances, different dates, switching directions, the pandemic, volunteer burn out, different routes and so forth. It has definitely been a wild ride and one we are grateful for.
The Shuswap Trails and community are an absolute gem and the Larch Hills traverse is something beyond magical that is completely community driven. This pause is to realign our intention for the Shuswap Ultra which was always to best support community and the trail system.
Thank you for an incredible 6 years of support; we are forever grateful for the friendships and relationships. Joy finds space & we are beyond stoked to have gone out with an incredible 2023 event & hosting one of the El Cruce feeder series events for Saucony Canada.
