We are excited to be back on Vancouver Island to show you more of what the island has to offer. Furthermore we want to showcase new communities  – each with different terrain and exciting trail networks, that we know you will love.

You will get to experience some of the best riding BC has to offer, without ever looking at a map.

Your base entry fee includes everything on course to support you, including aid stations, finish line food, and medical support.

Other Basecamp components such as accommodation, meals, and transportation are options sold separately, so you can customize your week to suit your needs or preference.

We are excited to bring back Basecamp. It’s been a racer favorite and guarantees the best time post race each day. Check out our Blog to learn more about what Basecamp life is all about.

Once you arrive on Vancouver Island you will have two transportation options:

  • Our Program

The race starts on July 3rd in Crofton, BC.


We recommend flying into one of the following two airports:

  • Vancouver International Airport (YVR)
    • This airport is NOT on Vancouver Island – you MUST book your ferry with BCFerries ahead of time to guarantee a spot on a sailing. July 1st is a holiday in Canada and a busy weekend.


To get to Vancouver Island by vehicle you have to take BCFerries, which offers two route options:

  • Horseshoe Bay (West Vancouver) to Nanaimo (Vancouver Island)
  • Tsawwassen (Vancouver) to either Victoria or Nanaimo (Vancouver Island)
