Why we love it

The Shuswap Ultra is inspired by community. It is inclusive and supports all levels of runners; those new to trail running, those looking to compete in their first ultra, and a seasoned runner that is training to crush a fast course. This combined with the beauty of the trails within the Southern Secwepemc First Nation, make it a must do.
