START/FINISH in the stunningly beautiful Deep Cove! New distance options of a 15km short course, with 900 meters of climbing and descent, and a new for 2015 50k ultra distance! Local favorite trails such as the Baden Powell, Dales Trail and Old Buck.
**We do not recommend the Buckin' Hell 50k as your first ultra. The course is one of the more technical you'll find and there are long stretches where all but the lead few runners will be unable to run the terrain. Finish times for the BH50 will be slow, as evidenced by our 13 hour cutoff time. We direct the Squamish50 and believe finish times will be longer than both SQ50 and the Knee Knacker. This is not a runner's course, it is very much a hiker's course that will favor people with a lot of experience on the burliest of North Shore trails.**
