Coliseum Mountain is in Lynn Headwaters Regional Park in North Van. The hike is 24km roundtrip - the first 7km are relatively flat along the Headwaters Trail, then the trail climbs up to the top of Coliseum Mountain where there is a small lake to freeze your limbs in should you desire to. 

Where the 'light and fast' comes in.... This trail is very popular among avid trail runners mostly because the first section has little elevation gain. That piqued my interest because I love running on flat-ish terrain. However, I will likely be enjoying the scenery when it starts to get steeper.... 

So this is not a strict trail running trip per se, more so a 'walk and run with very little gear to try and go fast' trip.
