Tinhorn Creek has been growing grapes, making wine and laughing away in the South Okanagan for 20 years. With so many wineries in our region, you might wonder why PACE has partnered with Tinhorn. There are actually lots of reasons. This is an incredible winery with beautiful wine series that will make your pallet dance for joy. However, you already knew PACE would align with a quality winery. Our reasons go far beyond that...
"Because that’s what we are: friends, family – and friends who become family."
Sound familiar? Yea, we thought so too. Tinhorn Creek grows grapes and makes wines but they are also into creating connections, charitable giving and sustainability which makes Tinhorn & PACE an ideal match.
You will see Tinhorn Creek wines at our Mountain Running Camps this year. Another perfect "pairing"...

Thanks Kelowna Cycle for your continued support and involvement within our community and for PACE!
Brewed right here in Kelowna, Tree Brewery Co., is our newest sponsor! Help me welcome them and give them a good ol' fashioned PACE welcome! I mean, who doesn't like to trail run and then wash down a tasty local brewski? Uh huh... that's what I thought!
Our Mountain Running Camps, Clinic events and Autumn Rush Trail Race can look forward to flavors such as Tasty Beaver, Beach Blonde and Dukes Cider. The cider is made with 100% local apples even happens to be gluten free!
Sure, we LOVE Tree Brewery's beer but we also love how important community is to them. Their values align with that of PACE, which makes it an even sweeter partnership. Check out all the great work Tree does in our community here.
You can visit Tree Brewery on 1083 Richter Avenue.

REVELSTOKE MOUNTAIN CAMP INFO
This weekend my family and I spent the weekend in Revelstoke. We stayed at the beautiful Sutton Place Hotel & Resort. Set amongst the spectaular Selkirk Mountains of the Columbia Mountain Range, Sutton Place Hotel is a ski-in/ski-out all-suite hotel located at the base of Revelstoke Mountain Resort.
We were greeted with exceptional services and really enjoyed all the additional amenities this world-class resort had to offer. We booked a luxurious 1 bedroom condo, with a pull out couch, which was super cozy. The kitchen was well stocked with all our cooking needs. We felt like we were far, far, far away on vacation, unlike the reality that Revy is only a 2.5hr drive from Kelowna.
We hit the outdoor hot tub and pool often, sometimes twice in one day. The setting was so relaxing and majestic. I am really pleased we partnered up with the Sutton for our Revy Mountain Running Camp next August. The mountain running and camp atmosphere is going to be awesome and staying at the Sutton is only going to make it more enhanced. We can play hard and rest easy with the Sutton as our home base. This is a going to be an amazing place to build fitness, make memories and explore next summer.
Save the date for Revelstoke! We have called it the 'Owl' because it is the shortest of all three of our camps. 2 nights and 2.5 days of running. August 22nd to August 24th. More details on the camp HERE.
PACE is proud to partner up with the Sutton Place Hotel on Revelstoke Mountain in 2014. This luxury condominium style hotel offers premium amenities and is only minutes from downtown Revelstoke.
We are excited to call the Sutton Place Hotel home for our Mountain Running Camp taking place in Revelstoke on August 22 to 24th. Enjoy 2.5 day of epic mountain running, learn more about trail running, training, nutrition and more from a professional running coach and have an outstanding experience with likeminded trail running folk.
