The GutBuster Mt.Washington race is a 6km run up to the top of Mt. Washington (1588m!) with 505m of elevation gain. The race starts beside the Alpine Lodge and steadily climbs throughout as you cross the mountain back and forth. Once above the treeline, you’ll be treated to some unbelievable views of the Comox Valley and Strathcona Park. Once at the top we bring you back down gently on some fun single track. Definitely the most scenic and rewarding race in the series.
Runners from around the Island will compete in the Gutbuster Trail Running Series. Mount Washington is a venue for the final of 4 races.
