I am sorry to report that Dry Creek Road had to pull out of Nimble Bear. We are currently doing our best to find a replacement band. Thanks for your understanding.

Hello Goat fans!
Just a quick update on the registration status. We currently have approx. 30 spots left in both the 50k & 25k events. Early bird pricing ends on Nov. 30th. After such time, there is a price increase.
Sincere thank you to everyone who has invested into the 2016 goat. We are beyond excited to get the party started next July!
Spent part of the day out on the *amazing* Nimble Bear course again, as we are still working on nailing down the exact course details. What can we say!? This park has so many amazing trail options we want to ensure we have the best of the best for our racers.
We have decided to push the registration opening day to Dec. 1st to give us a little more time to update course profiles and maps. We appreciate your patience and thank you for your support & interest in the Bear :)
She's a reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeal doozy! We hit the trails for a 46km recon run on the new Nimble Bear 50k course this weekend. We will have the final distances, profiles and full course details posted on the website soon. In the meantime, you should all know that the 50k is one heck of an early season ultra and no small cookie of a race!
The BG 50k was 1/3 sold out within the first hour of opening on November 1st and over 50% sold out within 4 hours. We are down to less than 50 spots left, so if you want to run in the high alpine West Kootenay mountain next summer and dance your face off with us under the stars afterwards... sign up fast!
Registration for the 25k is 1/3 full and the 12k is 1/4 full. However, last year both of these distances sold out as well.

Formally "Spring Rush", the Nimble Bear has added a 50k option to their event for 2016. After receiving numerous requests from our racers, asking if we would consider making this race an ultra for 2016, we decided to fire it up! The 50k will ultimately be 2 loops of the 27k and I can assure you that Nimble Bear 50k will be both challenging and fun. The trails within Rose Valley Regional Park are like no other in the area. The course is 95% single track and has views of the city and the valley galore. The climbs are challenging and the descents are epic!
We also adjusted the 16k course to essentially follow the 50k/27k course around the infamous "figure 8" section in the first 10k of the race. This section has one of the nicest single track pieces in it that feeds runners down loamy trails to the base of the reservoir and then sends them back up a switchback climb to "lone tree", before descending to the north end of the lake. This ever so slight course change will add approx. 2k, making it 18k for the 2016 event and an enhanced course. From the first aid station, the course remains the same as previous years.
Registration for the Nimble Bear will open on November 15th. Selling out last year, this is one spring event you won't want to miss out on!
Selling out in a few short days last year, Broken Goat has quickly become one of BC's most popular ultra's. Due to the remoteness of it's terrain, high altitude peaks and rustic course... this high alpine race brings a challenging and memorable experience like no other.
