The North Shore Mountains are comprised of six mountains and two suburban communities laid out along the north shore of Burrard Inlet. This is the beginning of the majestic Coast Mountain Range, which extends north along BC’s coast and right through Alaska. This is also the venue for the annual Ultra Race, Buckin Hell.With almost 2600 meters / 9000 feet of climbing and descent through the rough and rugged North Shore Mountains of British Columbia, Buckin' Hell earns its name. The race starts and finishes oceanside in the stunning Panorama Park, Deep Cove and runners ascend Mount Seymour while travelling through remnants of old growth forest before topping out over 4000ft above to enjoy magnificent mountain views. Buckin' Hell is an absolute showcase of some of the best trails and vantage points that Vancouver's North Shore has to offer.
START/FINISH in the stunningly beautiful Deep Cove. Local favorite trails such as the Baden Powell, Dales, Neds, Severed, Old Buck and Brockton Lookout. This is one of the most challenging and technical 50km races you'll come across.
