Registration for the Squamish event is NOW open.

The event will once again start and finish at Howe Sound Secondary School, on the southern end of town.

There are options for the 8k as well as the Flashback Mile, which tends to be mostly kids but all are welcome to participate.

The course is open to both Wheelchair athletes as well as those with Strollers.

Lifestages series

The Lifestages Lower Mainland Road Race Series provides Vancouver area runners with a chance to compete in an age-group based series.

The nine events feature races over 5K, 8K, 10K and the half marathon, and concludes with the Under Armour Eastside 10K in Vancouver in September.

Run course

The certified 8k run course is a flat out and back on a paved road.

The run begins on Buckley Avenue, in front of Howe Sound Secondary School.

Participants will head north on Buckley Avenue which becomes Bowen Ave and then Queens Way.

As you progress along Queens Way - passing Kal Tire on the right, then the Toyota dealership on the right/Ford dealership on the right - you approach a 'Y' intersection where you will be directed right onto Government Road.

As you approach another 'Y' intersection you will be directed left, staying on Government Road and crossing over a bridge over the Mamquam River. You will proceed straight for another few hundred metres before turning and reversing direction.

As you approach Howe Sound Secondary, with less than 200 metres to go, you will turn left for the Finish Line.
