The first Human Powered run challenge took place in the tropical paradise of the Big Island of Hawaii. The next run challenge moves to the spectacular Sea to Sky Corridor on the west coast of British Columbia.
The Sea to Sky Challenge is an event to give runners and triathletes a focus for training and a goal to achieve. The Challenge is to run the equivalent of from Vancouver to Whisteler along the Sea to Sky Highway during the month of August.
Vancouver to Whister is 124 Kilometres. Squamish lies approximately half way, at 67 Kilometres from Vancouver. You will receive recognition for reaching Squamish and for completing the Challenge by reaching Whistler.
You can run anywhere. Log your distance and submit proof to us via the link.
Proof can be in the form of device files or simply a photo of your sports watch or treadmill screen. It just needs to include the date and distance.
Everyone who enters the Sea to Sky Challenge will receive a commemorative plaque. As you reach your goals you will receive medallions that mount on the plaque to reward your progress. There is a medallion for reaching Squamish and a medallion for finishing the challenge by reaching Whistler. There is a special medallion for anyone who is able to complete the return trip to Vancouver, or 248K, in the month.
You can track your progress on the Sea to Sky progress page listing participants and their total progress, updated daily. This page will be accessible to the public so that your friends and family can follow your run. And you will be invited to an athlete Facebook group so you can meet your co-challengers.
These are challenging times for everyone, particularly for athletes. Covid 19 has caused the cancellation of races, events, and training camps. Physical Distancing makes it impossible to train with our teammates or training partners.
