Hosted over summer solstice, the Shuswap Ultra is a 120KM, 60KM & Relay trail event that connects the communities of Salmon Arm and Sicamous in the gorgeous Shuswap, British Columbia. The trails that make up the Shuswap Ultra route(s) are within the Traditional Territory of the Southern Secwepemc First Nation.
It is a privilege to experience the preservation & beauty of these lands.

The 120KM (out & back) starts at Klahani Park in Salmon Arm and brings racers into the inviting South Canoe trail system where they will journey into the Larch Hills Traverse to experience a variety of ecosystems. On one of the longest days of the year, runners will be rewarded with forests, fens, fresh single track trails, remarkable Shuswap & Mara lake(s) viewpoints, gentle switchbacks and undisturbed private trails on Splatsin First Nation land. The turnaround point/mid way is a short jaunt up Old Spallumcheen road to the impressive Mara Hills Golf Resort. From the mid point, runners will head back up the flowy Sicamous switchbacks to experience the traverse from the opposite direction and join the finish line festivities at Klahani Park.

The 60KM (point to point) distance starts at the gorgeous Mara Hills Golf Resort and leads racers down Old Spallumcheen road and into the stunning private trails on Splatsin First Nation land. The gentle Sicamous switchbacks guide racers up the remote traverse to experience a variety of ecosystems, each with distinct display. Through out the day, racers will be rewarded with vast forests, old growth cedar, single track and impressive Shuswap & Mara lake(s) viewpoints before dropping into the speedy South Canoe trail system and the finish line party at Klahani Park.
