Entering into its 16th year, the Cypress Hills High Altitude Trail Challenge is a family-friendly event that takes place in the beautiful Cypress Hill Interprovincial Park (Saskatchewan side).
The CHHATC offers runners four distances in which to participate: 2km, 5km, 10km and 21km. The 2km stays on the paved road that circles Loch Leven Lake, while the remaining distances take runners out onto some of the gorgeous trails the park has to offer. The beginning of the race is challenging, but those three events all end with a paved trail down (yes, downhill!) to the road, perfect for catching your breath before the final sprint to the finish.
Your race directors for this event are André and Kelsey Delorme. André participated in the event for a couple of years and when he heard that the previous director wanted to step down, they decided to take the chance! 2017’s event was their first and they are excited to take what they learned and translate it into a bigger and better event in 2018 and beyond!
André and Kelsey would like to thank all past sponsors and volunteers. This event could not go on without them and we look forward to working closely with you again!
This is also the date of the Annual Taste of Maple Creek food festival, so be sure to fuel up again after the race! For more info visit: http://www.visitcypresshills.ca/events/taste-of-maple-creek/
This event could not be held if it weren’t for people who are willing to donate goods, money and/or their time.
