Weather:
Historically it’s nice in Kalamalka Provincial Park in July so remember to bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen but you never know it could rain so bring clothing for all types of weather. Also there’s a beach at the start/finish area so maybe a towel would be good too.

Trails & Terrain:
The trails in Kalamalka Provincial Park are a mix of rocks and dirt and can be very dusty. These trails are surrounded by great scenery with the lake and the rocky hills, there should be some great views along the way. There will be sections of the race on double track trails to allow for passing and spreading out of the group however there will be a good portion of single track as well.
