SilverStar trail run returns

Third annual Slay The Dragon trail race set for June 29

The third-annual Slay the Dragon trail race returns to SilverStar Mountain Resort in the summer of 2019.

Runners will have the opportunity to tackle the epic Beowulf trail. Only open to trail runners once each year, this incredible race offers a scenic single-track trail experience high above the Okanagan Valley.

The race will be held Canada Day long weekend, Saturday, June 29, and there are three options available to runners:

The Grendel – 13 km;

Grendel’s Mother- 25 km;

The Dragon – 50 km.

Although Beowulf will be the highlight trail, no matter which distance a participant chooses it will include amazing trails, beautiful views and cool mountain temperatures.

Slay The Dragon started in 2017 with those who took on “The Dragon” being the first group to lay foot on Beowulf. This tradition now continues every year.

Building upon the successes from last year, organizers only plan to make this race bigger and better each year.

The race’s sign-up link can be found here.
