Run Wild Vancouver presents: Survive Outside

Are you new to trail running?  Maybe you're experienced, but looking to push your limits a little and explore a little further or higher.  Does your bucket list include local routes like Hanes Valley or the Howe Sound Crest Trail?

Each year there are more than 1,600 search and rescue incidences in BC alone.  Our local terrain provides uniques challenges and yet is so accessible, leading to an increase in these incidents year after year.  They involve all types of outdoor enthousiasts, from hikers to skiers, and increasingly trail runners as the sport continues to grow.

In response to this, Run Wild Vancouver is please to host a special edition of the AdventureSmart Survive Outside classroom program.  You'll hear from seasoned trail runners with first-hand experience.  They'll share personal stories and practical tips to help you play safe on the trails when travelling fast and light.  You'll learn ways to manage the (often unexpected) dynamics of running in a group, leadership skills and things to consider when adventuring with less experienced runners.

You can play safe AND have fun on the trails.  Join us to find out how.
