Mountain Hardwear Scrambler RT 35 Outdry Backpack Review

Bottom Line: A light, versatile and durable backpack that’s, more importantly, waterproof! Perfect for anything from rock climbing, ice climbing, skiing, hiking… etc. Observations: Two years ago we tested the Scrambler 30 Outdry pack.

10 Reasons To Run Squamish 50 Every Year

This year made my 3rd year in a row running a distance in the Squamish 50 series. My love affair with the Squamish 50 began when I signed up for my first trail race, the 50km option, in 2013.

“Spring Rush” Trail Race Recap

Every time I have ever driven through the Kelowna area, gazing at the dry, sagebrush covered hillsides, I have dreamt of running there. So I was pretty stoked to get the chance to run “Spring Rush” on April 25 in Kelowna. Not only is the race named after me (you may have to fact check that with the race director), but the race would wind through the very hills I have long dreamt of running. The event is located a ten minute drive from...
