Arc’teryx Squamish Hoody Review

Bottom Line: The Arc’teryx Squamish Hoody is┬áthe perfect lightweight shell to take on a summer mutli-pitch climb when you think it might get a little windy on the wall and it also┬ámakes an excellent Alpine running jacket for the cool days or as a windshell on the descent. First Impressions and Observations: I was looking for a jacket that was versatile to use in a lot of different scenarios, but still light enough that I could...

Running the Squamish 50 – 50 Mile

So I actually did it. It still feels a little bit like a dream really. The months of physical preparation, the mental anguish I put myself through, were finally put to the test on August 16th when I got to run the Squamish 50 (50mile/80km) trail race. There was so much trepidation leading up to this day, unsure I would actually be able to complete the full distance. The longest run I had done leading up to race day was 50km and I just...

Garibaldi Park – Rubble Double

Pretty hard to feel too tired with views like this. Beautiful trail coming into Cheakamus Lake. Ahhh Black Tusk never gets old! Well...

Squamish 50 Orientation Run

June 22nd was the last of the orientation runs for the Squamish 50. I knew I wanted/had to run the 47km for peace of mind. I woke up that morning tired, unsure of being able to run the full distance. I actually thought to myself I would cop out and probably choose the 37km halfway through, as there is a point in the run where the 47 and 37 runners split. Anyway, I had my good running friends Adam and Sarah(both wanting to run the...

The Stawesome Chief Sampler

On a whim I decided to call our exploratory trail run around the Stawamus Chief in Squamish the “Stawesome Chief Sampler” as it’s Awesome and samples some of the best trails in this small Provincial Park. We did a loop, checking out all 3 summits of “The Chief” as well as some lesser known viewpoints and airy hangouts. We don’t like to give too much away in our reports, so that you can discover...
