Welcome to the P.A.C.E Trail Race Series where we host a variety of grass-roots events in beautiful British Columbia. Our goal is simple. To offer challenging & scenic race courses that leave our participants feeling exhausted but overjoyed upon completion. We also support local charities in the process. We call it the 'share the love' program. Basically what that means is we create outstanding and memorable courses on some of our favorite trails that include as much climbing and single track as we can find. Then we donate a portion of each race entry back to organizations in need. Yea, our races are hard. All of them... But don't let that psych you out. Every year we witness people from all over who cross the finish line with huge smiles, wobbly legs and where we embrace sweaty hugs + reward our racers with handmade finishers medals made with more "love". Plus your participation helps us give back!
Running feels good. Giving back feels good. Doing both feels great!
Our series is all about homemade touches, down to earth celebrations and embracing the gift to be able to run and enjoy the journey. Top three finishers in each distance receive unique awards such as homemade pies, jams, pottery, cheese boards or German beer steins. We try to keep it interesting and fun!
We also created the "inspiration station" concept in the spring of 2014, where you can head over to the tent on race day and grab a "lifeline" quote, write something motivational on your hand or fill out a thankful card, just in case you need a little reminder of how awesome you are or if you need a little motivation to keep you moving. Yea, we like to show the love, but don't let that fool you. Our race courses are no joke and you should show up well trained and prepared.

Formally called Spring Rush, the Nimble Bear early season race has become one of the most popular in the series due to it's quality single track, outstanding views, reputation for being a major quad burner and overall super fun event!
Located in the East Kootenays, this big mountain race takes place from Red Mountain Resorts in Rossland, BC. It's a hard race and you need to show up physically prepared for mountain conditions and the long haul.
Join us for our season wrap up event on spectacular Angel Springs Trail in Myra Bellevue Provincial Park. If you love singletrack, steep climbs and technical descents, then you will fall in love with the Wandering Moose (formally Autumn Rush)
