Meet Nick Elson, the fastest man you've never heard of. He is quite likely one of the most humble athletes around. Before most of us have started our second cup of coffee, Nick has probably run up the Sea to Summit trail, summited Sky Pilot, and will be back in time to join you for said coffee.
We are extremely excited to host an evening at the shop with our friend, and Squamish local, Nick Elson. He is the 2015 & 2016 Canadian mountain running champion, 2× winner of the Squamish 50 Ultra, and he most recently set the Fastest Known Time (FKT) for the Teton Grand Traverse (Jackson Hole, Wyoming).
To say that Nick is adept at running, scrambling, and climbing technical mountain terrain would be an understatement. We are proud to have him come in and present us with some of his highlights from the last couple seasons, and fill us in on his goals and objectives for the upcoming year. What better way to kick off the new year and get inspired for some lofty goals than spending an evening with the 2016 Canadian Trail Runner of the Year?
