With the big day less than a week away, you have now put in months - maybe even a full year - worth of preparation for the Squamish50. With it being the biggest running event of the year for many of us, I thought I would share this list with you. It’s a list of mistakes that one might want to avoid this week.
Logic says that in the final days before a big event, you should be Steady-Eddy. Keep the ship on a course; no crazy turns, no big changes of speed, and no surprises!
To round out our community run offerings, we've teamed up with the District of Squamish to offer an 8-week Introduction to Trail Running clinic. Each Sunday we'll start in a different location and explore various areas of the extensive Squamish trail network. This is a fun and social clinic aimed at newer runners looking to get in to trail running, and/or those interested in learning about and exploring more of our extensive trail network.
Trail running can be intimidating. I still vividly remember my first trail run in North Vancouver. I went out with two friends, one of which who knew the route and “led” us. I started the run/hike feeling completely lost in the wilderness, wondering where exactly she was taking us, feeling a little scared and nervous.
