What a year it’s been, thanks to all of you for your patience and understanding as we work to get our events back on track. We’ve recently invited all 2020 registered runners to re-register for either 2021 or 2022. With over 850 runners back on board for 2021, we’ve decided to be cautious and not open new registrations at this time.

We are reviewing the Covid-19 situation both locally (British Columbia) and globally regularly, and it’s clear we still can’t justify opening any new registrations.  We continue to monitor things closely, and we remain in regular contact with our health authority contacts. We will make any announcements about new registrations on this site, via our social media, and in an email newsletter.

While we are proceeding with the full intent to be able to host this event by October, we cannot currently secure permits or permissions, and as we’ve all heard so much this year, nothing is certain. Our primary considerations are the health and safety of our participants and volunteers, and the guidance of our local authorities and land managers. With that in mind, for everyone that applies their 2020 registration credit to 2021, we are guaranteeing 100% credit into a future year Squamish 50 if we’re not able to host in 2021.
