Join Nimble Bear Trail Race
Formally called Spring Rush, the Nimble Bear early season race has become one of the most popular in the series due to it’s quality single track, outstanding views, reputation for being a major quad burner and overall super fun event. Selling out in it’s first year, Nimble Bear provides runners with magnificent views. The trails in Rose Valley are referred to as the "hidden gem" in West Kelowna.
The trails within Rose Valley Regional Park are like no other in the area. The course is 95% single track and has views of the city and the valley galore. The climbs are challenging and the descents are epic.
Destacable en la ruta
The 25k starts out leaving Rose Valley school grounds and quickly enters into the park on a steady single track climb. Runners will be treated to the first fun switchback descent in the race which drops them down into more amazing single track and outstanding views.
The climb up to climbing up to Rooster Tree is no joke, but once you get to the summit of "city on the edge of forever" you're legs will be whistling a different tune.
Aid Station #1 will be reached at the 10.5k point of the race and runners will want to fuel up because the next aid isn't until 19k and there is a monster climb in-between the two aid stations. The descent is twisty and fun and will link them back into a very small piece of double track and Aid Station #2 at 20k. From here, the last 5km is NO walk in the park to the finish and runners will still have a lot of work ahead of them as they hit a tight single track trail that will once again lead them up to high vistas before traversing and eventually back to the finish line at Rose Valley Elementary School to complete one big loop. The 50k course will roughly be 2 loops of the 25k, which on it's own, is notably one of the hardest of its distance within BC with 3350 feet of technical and steep terrain.
