After a fun winter full of snow and sleet and rain, let's say hello to spring! Arc'teryx Kitsilano is celebrating the change of the season with a weekend full of fun activities!
1. Join us for the party!
Guests are invited to the Arc'teryx Kitsilano store on Saturday April 14th from 6pm - 9pm for a fun, social evening. Hilary Matheson from Run Wild Vancouver will be presenting on what it means to be an ultra trail runner.
Visit our different stations to learn how to take care of your gear and how to efficiently pack a lightweight bag for trail running & day hiking that includes all the necessary essentials.
Run Wild Vancouver will be available to answer your questions about their amazing organization and to chat about their event calendar.
Evo will be hanging out and giving away great deals!
We will be serving snacks, drinks from RISE Kombucha and much more. At the end of the evening we will be raffling off a Cerium SL Hoody and a Norvan 14 Hydration Vest!
2. Join us for a trail run or hike!
On Sunday April 15th we'll be doing Mt Gardner on Bowen Island!
There are many different routes on this mountain, our plan is to do an ~11km loop. This trail is rated "intermediate" and is expected to take 3-5 hours, depending on pace and how long we break for lunch at the top. This trail has steep uphill sections and hikers must be in good physical shape. We will have one group of trail runners and one group of hikers, each with a leader.
There will be limited free spots on a bus that will meet at the Arc'teryx Kitsilano store in the morning and take participants to the Mt Gardner trailhead. The bus will return to the Arc'teryx Kitsilano store for dropoff afterwards. If you do not have a bus RSVP, then you will meet the group at the Mt Gardner trailhead and will be responsible for making your own way back as well.
More specific details for this event will be emailed to you after registering your ticket.
If you plan on attending both events, please reserve a separate ticket for both!
