It was a wet and wild one out there at the 23rd annual Diez Vista 50k Trail Race race on the weekend, but that didn’t discourage people from tackling the distance and enjoying as much of it as they could 😊

278 starters with 257 finishers in somewhat complex conditions. The weather was toying with us a bit though, for not ten minutes after the final rain-soaked runner crossed the line did the clouds part and the sun come out to provide much needed warmth and a beautiful sunset. The weather was perfect on the Friday, before the race, nice on the Sunday, after the race, and for the duration of the 10-hour event on Saturday runners faced mother nature’s wrath…just as it should be 😉😆

We’re always impressed by how hardy the runners are, but we’re blown away by the 125+ volunteers who make this all possible, who stand out there in the cold and rain from start to finish, smiling, cheering and nurturing runners along as many are brought to their near breaking point along the way. Thank you volunteers for not only making this all possible, but for truly making the runner experience so special throughout!

We had over 85 people join us for post-race drinks at the Saint James Well, and the race directing crew were even able to make it there by 7:45pm.

All in all another super successful Diez Vista is in the books, and we cannot wait to do it all again next year. Also, along with our Run Ridge Run race in February, via our $5 per bib + donations, we’ll be presenting Coquitlam SAR with a cheque for over $9000 this year!

Pics thanks to our incredible photographers Scott Robarts and Brian McCurdy.

And finally, a big thanks to all our race sponsors for all their support:
