Slay the Dragon
Slay the Dragon is a trail running event located at beautiful Silver Star Mountain Resort, only a short drive up the mountain from the gorgeous lakes of Vernon, BC.
Whether you choose the 13.6km, 25km, or 50km distance, you will start your event at 5200+ feet. Racing to stunning unobstructed views of the Monashee Mountains at an elevation of 6,280 feet whilst running through beautiful single track mountain bike trails of Silver Star Resort.
Welcome to the Slay the Dragon with 3 fun distances to choose from:
13km, 25km, & 50km
The 50km racers will have a super easy warm cruising down Easy Street to eventually connect into Electric Avenue, while 13km & 27km distances will start with a nice flat warm up to get you across the mountain to get into the single track trail of Silver Shack.
In Silver Shack you may see some of your 50km racing buddies for a quick high 5 before they head into Aunt Gladys and the long 52 switchbacks descent of Beowulf.
13km & 25km will continue to Paradise Trail which will have you cruising along the double track trail while taking in the views of the village as you come around the front of the mountain finishing the climb to the top.
At the top of Attridge, load up at the aid station, take a moment to enjoy the tremendous mountain views before you wind yourself around Attridge Loop
to start your technical decent back down towards the village.
Give those quads a slap, keep your eyes up, and feet down through this fast fun technical descent.
As you near the elevation of the village the 13K will split off on the final sprint to the finish line and the 25K’s will continue towards the Knoll trails reconnecting with those 50km racers.
The knoll trails will see the final efforts extracted of both the 25 & 50km runners as they weave their way around the network of trails from BX creek to Wine Bottle (Watch for hidden bottles of wine, finders keepers) amongst many other great pieces of single track trail!
This will bring you right back to the village and the finish line where your cheering squads will be waiting.
