From the 5 Peaks website:
Alice Lake is one of Squamish's sweetspots, surrounded by towering mountains, dense forests and grassy areas. There are four fresh water lakes that dominate the landscape and make swimming and fishing very enjoyable pastimes.
Squamish is an endless outdoor playground and we're proud to present you with one of our absolute highlight courses.
We start and finish in the beautiful Alice Lake Provincial Park, where you can even go for a cool down dip post race, as well as have a BBQ at one of the many picnic tables.
We're using this series primarily as prep for the 2017 Spartan Race Sun Peaks Beast, where we want to go pedal to the metal this year and finish strong instead of "just finishing", but we've also heard that the 5 Peaks crew put on great events, and the trail running community are a fun bunch to hang out with! I know I really enjoyed my first trail race experience in 2016 (despite my accident cutting my race short), so I'm really looking forward to it.
Both Coach JP and Coach Julia are entered for this event, and it will be Coach JP's first race of the season. We're running the "Enduro", which is supposed to be about 13 km in length.
