Pacific Spirit Park is a trail-running paradise right in UBC's backyard. Yet, perhaps precisely because it is so close, it is all too easy to take it for granted and let your time at UBC slip away without genuinely exploring it. 

Gabrielle Booth organized the Pacific Spirit Park Trail Baggin' Challenge back in 2019 and 2020. Since I plan on running every inch of trail regardless, I figured it wouldn't hurt to shamelessly plagiarize her trip idea and revive the challenge for 2023. The idea is simple:

(1) Run (or walk/bike/etc) every path in Pacific Spirit Park.

(2) Record your progress by making a copy of the map and highlighting the trails you've covered. You can find this in the google drive folder.

(3) Let me know when you've finished and I'll update the event description to forever memorialize your accomplishment. I'll also buy you a cinnamon bun from Grounds for Coffee as a bonus incentive (limited to the first three people that finish, in case this somehow gets more interest than I would predict...). 

Good luck!


On the signup page:

Interested  = I'm intrigued by the concept and see how I feel about it later when it starts to rain
