The race will start in Lightning Lake Day Parking Lot, Manning Park, BC. The route will travel on a trail beside the road to turnoff to 20 Minute Lake Trail but go left along Little Muddy Trail (which is through a field). Follow posted signage to Windy Joe and Similkameen Trail. After that, follow signage for Frosty Mtn. Ascend to the forested areas, open meadows, single track, and rocky sections to wooden signs just before the summit of Frosty Mountain which is the highest peak in Manning Park at 7900 feet (2408 meters). After reaching the wooden signs, the race will descend (on the right side) through a short rocky section then into meadows on easy switchbacks and reach the south side of Lightning Lake. The 27 km race will turn off to finish back at Lightning Lake parking lot just past Aid station 3, while the 50 km race will continue around Lightning and Strike Lake followed by a relatively easy climb up Sky Line Trail 1 returning via Strawberry Flats to Lightning Lake parking lot.
