Silver Star Mountain Resort


Squamish 50 mile ultra trail run

Mind Over Mountain Adventure Racing

Silver Star Mountain Resort
Vernon, BC
postponed to 2013

The Frontier Adventure Challenge returns to the beautiful Okanagan Valley of BC, back to one of our favourite destinations - Silver Star Mountain Resort. In 2004, we loved the challenging and varied terrain of this area, and the fabulous hospitality of our Silver Star hosts. They've invited us back, and we jumped at the chance.

Grab two friends or strangers, or go solo, and join us on Saturday, August 18 to experience a wilderness adventure - riding the amazing mountain biking trails around Silver Star, exploring the woods and ridges of the Monashees, and testing the pristine lakes and rivers of the Vernon backcountry. Add in the temperate weather and abundant sunshine of the Okanagan, and you have a recipe for a perfect adventure racing weekend.

TOP-NOTCH COURSE DESIGN: Our experienced course design team has created a fun and challenging course that will give you a taste of Raid the North style adventure racing. The course will be finishable for both experienced and new racers, and certainly memorable for everyone.

WIN RACE DISCOUNTS: Top teams in each category, and the top solo racer, are each rewarded with a 50% discount on the Fall Classic in October.

POST-RACE PARTY: On Saturday night, celebrate your achievement with your teammates, your competition and our great volunteers. Our licensed post-race celebration will feature great tunes, photos and video from the day, and random prizing through the night. We encourage you to come early and stay late, and enjoy all Silver Star has to offer - or volunteer on the Raid the North course!
