Join Knee Knackering North Shore Trail Run

The Knee Knackering North Shore Trail Run is a challenging 30-mile foot race along the Baden-Powell Centennial Trail from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver to Deep Cove in North Vancouver, BC, Canada.

The course will appeal to people with some experience in trail and/or endurance events. It provides runners with magnificent city, mountain and ocean views, as they go up and over the mountains which grace the communities of Metro Vancouver’s North Shore, climbing 8,000 feet and descending another 8,300 feet in the process. Running Wild magazine has recognized the race as one of 25 toughest races in North America.

What started as a group run with eight participants in 1989, quickly grew into the largest ultramarathon race in Canada. By 1994, the race limit of 125 runners was reached five months prior to race day, with an even greater number of runners being turned away. Since then a lottery has been used to select an expanded field of 262 runners.

The race is produced by the Northshore Ultra Trailrunning Society (incorporated as a non-profit society in British Columbia) – a small group of dedicated runners from the Metro Vancouver area. Besides providing a forum for athletic competition, the race has raised $108,000 for various charities since its inception.

Course Highlights

The Knee Knackering course essentially follows the Baden Powell trail which traverses Vancouver’s North Shore Mountains from Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove. Both ends of the trail are close to or at Sea Level and the high point on the course is 4,000 feet at the peak of Black Mountain. The race as a whole has some 16,000 feet of vertical climb and descent. The Baden Powell trail is a scenic and very technical trail through a Pacific Northwest rain forest. Most of the trail is within the forest, although there are some absolutely spectacular vistas at a number of points along the trail. The course is 30 miles long and the field is limited to about 200 starters.
