In late August 2020, I set out to complete a 110 mile / 177 km long mountain route in Chilliwack, BC. The route goes from Cultus Lake to Chilliwack Lake and back, with 108 miles of unique terrain, and involves over 33,000ft / 10,000m of climbing and descent, via four major mountain passes. This is the first known linkage of this route in this manner. I respectfully acknowledge that this run took place through the unceded lands of the Stó:lō Nation, in the traditional territory known as S’olh Temexw.
