Racers to run Grouse Grind for North Shore Rescue donations

There will be top prizes and a celebration following Saturday's 30th annual Grouse Grind Mountain Run

It’s one day of the year that local search and rescue volunteers will be relieved that hundreds of people are running through our forested network of trails.

On Saturday, Aug. 26, a horde of participants will race up North Vancouver’s Grouse Grind, seeking their best times and donations for North Shore Rescue. The 30th annual Grouse Grind Mountain Run is the final event in Grouse Mountain’s Summer Race Series. At the Multi-Grouse Grind Challenge in June, the resort said more than $25,000 was raised for the “vital” rescue organization.

Participants of all ages will race in Saturday’s event, sprinting, jogging or power-walking up the 2,830 steps of “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster” while fundraising for their race effort. Registration is now closed.

There will be cash prizes for the top three male and female finishes, as well as additional prizes for each age category, teams and family teams.

The run will be capped off with a post-race celebration in the Mountaintop Plaza, with award presentations, a recovery zone, barbecue and music.
