October 8, 2017: Loon Lake Race 13k/7k

Loon Lake Run

A beautiful trail run in Powell River, on a dead flat 13 kilometre wheelchair accessible trail around the very edge of the lake. It starts and finishes at a fully serviced campground with a full-time caretaker. Where else in coastal BC can you run on 13 kilometres of wide manicured trail around a lake without even a bump? For those wanting to run a shorter distance, there is the Anthony Island 7k — an out & back utilizing the last 3.5k of the full lake trail — again, dead flat. Work up a big appetite for your Thanksgiving dinner. www.sunshinecoastathletics.org/loonlake/
