VITRS 2019 Mount Washington

August 12, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Conditions were overcast and blissfully cool for the 2019 Mount Washington stop of the Vancouver Island Trail Running Series. The clouds made for an epic West Coast mood!

These are the highlights of the day; for the full set of photos and purchase options, please visit the full gallery:

The next generation of trail runners ready to go! 

And they're off!

Running is FUN!

Yeah, the views aren't bad from the top.


Long course winner Sean Chester is all alone on the way to the summit.


This climb was steep! 


Lovely ribbon of sub-alpine singletrack.


After the steeps come the rocks. 


Just a wee bit of exposure to keep things interesting. 


 What, more UP?!?

 

Just posing on a mountainside.


Finally get to cruise for a bit!


The second climb for the long course racers was really, really steep. 

 Yay for hydration and gummies!

! This chairlift must have been a bit of a tease for the long-course runners, since the second climb went right along beside it. 

  All kinds of critters in the trees.
   
Happy to be at the finish line!
