Hot On Your Heels is a women’s only enduro style mountain bike race. Held in Squamish BC as a fundraiser for “Go Girls! Healthy bodies healthy minds” a program with Big Brothers Big Sisters. Not just a race, it’s about sharing the ride with friends in a social but competitive atmosphere. Held on the world renowned trails of Squamish, BC, you can expect an excellent mix of climbing and descending, set against the backdrop of the coastal rainforest, with vistas of Howe Sound and the surrounding peaks. The race is fully supported by our on course all-male volunteer cast, providing food and refreshment, motivation, and definitely some entertainment. Cross the finish line and you’re half way there… tear off those riding shoes and slip on your heels, let the legendary after party begin. More than a race, Hot On Your Heels promises to be a highlight of your summer.
Registration starts at 9am on the Ring Creek FSR, halfway up between the bottom of Half Nelson and the top of Pseudo Tsuga. Wave 1 will head out at 9:30am, wave 2 at 10:00am, wave 3 and 10:30am and wave 4 at 11:00am Check the Course Info page for the route info
Each year the course brings a few changes and a few new challenges. The trails are chosen with the intent of pushing some of you out of your comfort zones but still keeping it super fun for the more advanced riders. The format of the ‘race’ is enduro, but forget all of that nonsense you may have heard about cut off times and fanny packs. ‘Enduro’ is really just some new fancy word for timed segments, giving you ample time to stop and catch your breath along the way, chit chat with the handsome volunteers, and cheer on your fellow riders. Course details for this years race can be found under the ‘Course Info’ tab.
After Party Details
Kick off those cleats, wipe that mud off your calves and slip on those cocktail dresses and dancing shoes. It’s time to party! Each year the Hot On Your Heels after party is the hottest party in town. The after party is exclusive to racers and volunteers. Looking for details on the after party for this years race?
