FREAKY CREEKY 50

Welcome to the Freaky Creeky 50 with 4 distances to choose from: 10km, 25km, 50km & 100km Trail Running Race located in beautiful Okanagan’s Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park, located virtually at the back door of the City of Vernon.

In this trail running event we will take you through grassland dotted with ponderosa pine and groves of Douglas-fir, with km after km of single track trail. Some gnarly climbs, rolling terrain and a cross between technical and cruisey descents we are here to offer runners a challenging & scenic race course that leaves you feeling exhausted but overjoyed and fulfilled upon completion. 

 

Don’t let the fact that this is our first year scare you off. This course is designed for trail runners, by trail runners, so you can expect priority to be placed on a challenging, crazy fun, well flagged, fantastically aided course with the mightiest of volunteers!

Trail Running Race 10km, 25km, 50km & 100km

All 4 distances will have a challenging route that starts with a single-track climb, up to a beautiful full view south looking down Kalamalka lake.

 

You will wind along a short ridge before you all start another short climb. This is where the 25, 50, 100km runners must split off and take their own path, while the 10km runners continue to climb and climb, oh and did I mention the climb.

 

At the top you will have a stunning view of the Cosens Bay area and the trails your crazy fellow runners have continued onto.
