Welcome to the P.A.C.E Trail Race Series where we host a variety of grass-roots events in beautiful British Columbia. Our goal is simple. To offer challenging & scenic race courses that leave our participants feeling exhausted but overjoyed upon completion. We also support local charities in the process. We call it the 'share the love' program. Basically what that means is we create outstanding and memorable courses on some of our favorite trails from each community that include as much climbing and single track as we can find. Then we donate a portion of each race entry back to organizations in need. Yea, our races are hard. All of them... But don't let that psych you out. Every year we witness people from all over who cross the finish line with huge smiles, wobbly legs and where we embrace sweaty hugs + reward our racers with handmade finishers medals made with more "love". Plus your participation helps us give back!
Running feels good. Giving back feels good. Doing both feels great!
Our series is all about homemade apple pies, jams and embracing the gift to be able to run and enjoy the journey. Top three finishers in each distance usually get pie, jam or coffee. But don't worry if you don't finish top 3. We always make extra pies or jam to put into the draw prizes, so you'll still have a shot to go home with a tasty morsel.
We also created the "inspiration station" concept in the spring of 2014, where you can head over to the tent on race day and grab a "lifeline" quote or write something motivational on your hand. Sometimes we add "star junctions" where we hang buckets filled with quotes on challenging parts of the course in case you need a little reminder of how awesome you are or if you need a little motivation to keep you moving. Yea, we like to show the love, but don't let that fool you. Our race courses are no joke and you should come prepared. READ MORE...
