Slay The Dragon | Trail Running Race

Slay The Dragon | Trail Running Race

Canada is turning 150 on this day and SilverStar celebrations with the birth of a new event.  Register for Slay the Dragon,  a 12, 25 and 50Km trail running race that will incorporate a range of the amazing trails offered at Silver Star.  

No matter which distance you choose, each course will all encompass some amazing trails, scenic views, and great summer temperatures.  If you do choose to take on the 50Km, you will be rewarded with being some of the first people to complete the loop of our highlight trail Beowulf.  

Beowulf has been over 4 years in the making and has been a huge investment of blood, sweat, and tears to get it done.  This trail will take you far away from the village and all other trails, you will visit all four boundaries of Silver Star before you make it back to the finish line in the village.  It is an outstanding trail and we only hope it will live up to the reputation of the fearless Viking Beowulf.  

Beowulf is an epic poem and the oldest surviving long poem in Old English.  Based in Scandinavia, Beowulf (a Viking) must aid Hrothgar, the king of the Danes and defeat Grendel, Grendel’s Mother and The Dragon in three key battles.  During his success of defending the dragon, he is fatally wounded.   This poem relates to all aspects of this trail, it is created as an epic trail and the construction itself was an epic build taking over four years to complete with a full dedicated trail crew putting in countless hours.  Now we can't wait to show you Beowulf and let YOU slay The Dragon.  

The course distances and vertical are at the mercy of current day GPS and data programs... as always take with a grain of salt.

The Grendel- 12.7Km 500m ASC/DSC

Grendel's Mother- 24.1Km 1000m ASC/DSC
