Slay The Dragon: Trail Running Race August 18th, 2019 All Day Vikings, Grendel's and a Dragon!

Does that get your attention? Those are all part of the story behind our newest epic trail Beowulf, which you will get rewarded with if you choose to tackle the full adventure of the 50Km race! The story started in 2017, those who took on "The Dragon" were the first group to lay foot on Beowulf, this tradition continues every year now for Slay the Dragon.

Although Beowulf will be the highlight trail, no matter which distance you choose it will include amazing trails, beautiful views and great summer temperatures escaping from the valley heat. This will be a great race to take part in and will be a great summer goal for some and an opportune training race for others. SilverStar is situated high enough to beat the summer heat, yet lower enough to not be totally covered by the remnants of winter. Building upon our successes from last year, we only plan to make this race bigger and better each year. Racers last year were stoked, smiles and cheers coming from all participants, if you haven't taken on the Dragon it's time!

Taking place on Canada Day weekend provides a long weekend to ensure you have time to spend with your family and friends and take in all the other activities that exist at SilverStar Mountain.
