My first ever ultra was the 2004 Stormy 67km, and my first ever 100miler was the 2008 Stormy100. Having resided in Squamish for three full years I've always felt a special connection to those trails, and I've always desired to design a truly spectacular course that would encompass all that Squamish has to offer. Having worked with such reputable organizations as The MOMAR, 5 Peaks, Run The North Shore, and Red Bull Divide & Conquer, I am thrilled to finally bring a long standing personal vision of a Squamish 50miler to life in 2012. **I have been thrilled with the success we've achieved in just two years and am continually committed to improving the overall race experience for all involved, volunteer, runner, crew, spectator.
I've been a regular trail runner since the 80's, an avid adventure racer since 1999, and the owner
and Race Director of
Frontier Adventure Sports & Training (FAST) since 2002. I've been lucky enough to have raced across Canada and through much of the world, in sports ranging from trail running, mountain biking, snowshoeing and adventure racing, in sprint and expedition events like the Death Race, the Ultimate XC, and the Southern Traverse. As a newcomer to the west coast, I'm excited to work with Gary to showcase the incredible terrain around Squamish with an epic 50 mile trail run.
