Escape Routes's Rubble Creek Classic 2024

Rubble Creek Classic will be back for 2024!!¬†ūüéČ

Sign up will be in the coming months. Keep an eye out on our email and social for sign up dates.

 

Welcome to the Rubble Creek Classic! The Classic goes way back to 1983 where sea to sky locals would gather together on the last Sunday of September to run this beautiful route and celebrate the end of summer.


The route is spectacular! (Check out our recap video here). It crosses through one of the most scenic and well visited parks in BC, Garibaldi Park. The stunning route begins by taking runners up the many switchbacks on the Cheakmaus Lake trail. Following this, runners will go through the idyllic, flower filled meadows of Taylor Creek, past the once volcanic Black Tusk and down to the glistening shores of Garibaldi Lake.


With its spectacular views and rich history, it's one not to be missed! The race sold out same day in 2023 and spots are limited to 100 racers.
