Revelstoke’s Trail Running scene is picking up the pace!

Trail Running

Come run some of the best trails in BC.

Revelstoke is a trail runner’s paradise. Revelstoke trail running options span short to long; river valley flats to alpine ridges; and a diversity of ecosystems in between, including the only inland temperate rain forest in the world. We are lucky to have two national parks close by, Mount Revelstoke National Park and Glacier National Park, offering Revelstoke trail running for any level, from short and (relatively) flat, to long, steep, ridge walks and summits. Run to a mountain summit after a drive up the spectacular Meadows in the Sky Parkway. Visit in August when the sub alpine wildflower meadows explode into colour.
