Lumpy's Epic runs for the rink 

What: Lumpy’s Epic

Where: Pemberton, One Mile Lake

When: Sunday, Oct. 19, 10 a.m.

For the past four years the Lumpy’s Epic Fall Classic Trail Run has been putting athletes to the test.

Although it’s just 12 kilometres long, the race takes place almost entirely on technical singletrack, with a long climb and some bumpy terrain. The strongest runners finish in under an hour, but people can take two hours or more to run the course.

The reward is the view, which includes a panorama of Pemberton Valley, and views of Green River and Mt. Currie.

Registration for this year’s run starts at 9 a.m. at One Mile Lake, and the race starts at 10 a.m. sharp.

The cost is $15, with all proceeds going towards the Pemberton Community Ice Rink project.

For more information, contact Jeanette Helmer at 604-894-6618 or Patty Ritchie at 604-894-5260.

Lumpy’s Epic trail is named for Geoff "Lumpy" Leidal, a popular mountain biker in Whistler and Pemberton who died in an avalanche in 1998.
