An annual mountain climb for a good cause returns to North Vancouver on Sunday, June 25.
Since 2004, the Seek the Peak event has raised more than $400,000 in support of cancer research in BC, and that trend is on track to continue this year.
The awe-inspiring 4,100ft climb from Ambleside Park to the Peak of Grouse Mountain tests participants’ fitness, stamina and overall mental toughness.
Racers can face the 16 km course alone or tackle it in a relay team, splitting up the climb’s sections, including the famous Grouse Grind.
Once across the finish line the celebration begins with a variety of activities, including award presentations taking place in the mountaintop plaza.
Registration costs $55 per solo racer, or $50 per relay team member.
When: Sunday, June 25
Time: 8:15 am

Register: At seekthepeak.ca, $55 for solo runners, $50/person for a relay team of up to four. Online registration closes at 6 pm on Wednesday, June 21, in-person registration is available up to and including race day.
