Description:

Not at all accurate of what this trip is going to be like but it's a cool picture and running is badass

^not at all representative of the run we are doing, just a cool photo

What better way to spend the first day of your long weekend getting up early and running really far through the woods?

The plan is to bus to Lynn Headwaters and trial run to Deep Cove. We can get lunch (and donut — they are delicious) in Deep Cove before bussing back. We'll run the Baden Powell. It's 12-13 km and 400+ metres of elevation gain so you definitely need to be a strong runner. We wont leave anyone behind but we wont be walking the trail either!

I hiked the trail recently and it's in great shape. Some parts are a bit steep and there is a lot of up and down but it'll be great for a slower trailrun. I'm hoping to run the trail in 2-3 hours.

There are some nice views at the end of the trail!

Bring a bag you can run with to carry water, some snacks, and layers in case it gets cold/rainy.

Let me know if you have any questions!
