You see them all the time, they are cute and slimy. They clean up our forests. They are the mighty Banana Slug!
This race starts at 6:30pm.
There will be a short pre-race briefing before you start where you will be updated on course conditions, and a quick rundown of the race rules.
The Banana Slug 8km takes place in the trails behind Westwood Lake.
The race start is next to the parking lot on Arbot Rd.
We would ask that you park in lot 2 (the gravel lot) at Westwood Lake, then walk the 700m down the trail to the Start/Finish.
This race is all single track. There is a good climb at the 4km mark then sweet flowing and very runnable downhill. I guarantee you will be grinning as you run down it.
There is a good network of trails around Westwood but don’t worry our trails will be well marked. The first couple of km is a bit windy with lots of cross trails until the bridge. Once you pass the power lines it starts a nice gradual up hill until the big climb. At the top there are a couple of awesome views then it’s sweet downhill flowing single track for over 2km. THen back over the bridge and straight back to the finish.
