McLennan's Grit 12-hr Ultra Trail Run
McLennan's Grit 12-hour Ultra Trail Run (and relay) is a trail running event that brings challenge, camaraderie, and friendly competition together in British Columbia's beautiful Okanagan Valley.
McLennan's Grit is geared for runners who are looking for a new challenge, and enjoy bringing friends and family together to race in a beautiful outdoor environment where health, wellness, community spirit, and fun are the focus. Athletes can race McLennan's Grit solo, as a 2-person team, or as a team of 3 to 6 athletes.
Participants of all abilities may run or walk the 5 km trail loop through the natural habitat of Mount Conkle Park completing as many laps as they want in the 12-hour time frame. The Start/Finish of each lap is at the Summerland Rodeo Grounds where the Energy Zone (EZ) transition is comprised of team tents, timing tent and the F2C aid station. There is plenty of parking on-site as well as washroom facilities.
Teams are invited to set up their own base camps in the Energy Zone complete with comfy chairs, banners, cowbells and whatever else makes it fun to hang out for the day. The course goes right through the EZ so you can cheer everyone on! Team members will be responsible for keeping track of their laps and of course we'll help!
Food and drinks will be provided post-race in the Club House to celebrate the day.
