West coast rainforest trails and gravel service roads with “some roots, some rocks, some mud & some nice trail.”
Diez Vista is one of the most historic ultras in the country, heading into its 22nd year in 2018. Founded by local trail runners to showcase the trails and terrain around Port Moody, BC, the race has developed an incredibly loyal following, and has attracted some of the biggest names in ultra running over it’s storied history.
The race starts and finishes at Sasamat Lake in Belcarra Regional Park, and takes runners up and down (and up and down) the trails of neighbouring Buntzen Lake, including its namesake Diez Vistas trail.
Runners experience over 6000 ft of elevation gain & loss in the 50k, and over 12,000 ft in the 100k, which was just launched in 2017.
Selling out in 2017 in just under 14 hours, the DV 50k clearly has earned a place on many trail runners’ bucket lists.
