29 Trails Event – This weekend October 30th + 31st!

It’s our birthday bash! 29 Trails in celebration of SORCA’s 29th year working on behalf of the trail user community.

The essentials:

  • Creative trail signs for each of the 29 trails will be released Friday, October 29th
  • Event runs October 30th and 31st – costumes for the kiddos encouraged!
  • Mass start XC race in Valleycliffe starting 11AM – 1PM  Saturday (details below)
  • ***Registration is mandatory for the race (COVID protocol) and mandatory for the scavenger hunt to be considered for prizes! ***

What is 29 Trails and what do you need to know to take part?

This is a photo scavenger hunt on a selection of Squamish’s finest singletrack! 29 creative and handmade trail signs have been made by members and their families and will be placed on their respective trails around Squamish. Photos of the  trail signs will be uploaded to this webpage on the evening of October 28th. You have to guess which trail the sign represents, and then go out, find it on the trail and take a photo with it.

The goal is to get out on as many of these trails as possible on Saturday October 30th and Sunday October 31st. Take a photo with the trail sign and submit the trails you rode (or ran!) on the form linked below. For each trail you do, you’re entered in a draw to win a gift card to a local bike shop. If your name is drawn, you’ll be asked to submit your photo of that trail sign as proof you did it.

You do not need to complete all 29 trails to win a prize.

Register Here! (you can opt-in or out for the racing component)

Cross off and submit signs found and photographed to this google form to win a prize! (if you’re selected you will be asked to submit a photo) ***Please fill out this form by EOD Wednesday, Nov. 3rd***

29 Trails Valleycliffe XC Race

Putting events on has been a challenge this past year but we wanted to squeak a race in before the end of the season! So in conjunction with our 29 Trails event, we are bringing a mass start XC race to you in Valleycliffe. Those who register and compete in the race will automatically be entered to win prizes for those trails used in the race that are part of the scavenger hunt component.

Make sure you register at the link below (or above), and if you have an existing Spruce Events tag make sure you follow the prompts to see if it is still functional.*** Otherwise we will get you a tag on the day of the event.

Register Here!
