50K SOLD OUT

Thanks for your enthusiasm for the Diez Vista! We sold out all 225 spots in the 50K distance on the day registration opened. Sorry, no waitlists, no race day registrations, no transfers, no exceptions.

But, our new 100K distance still has a few spots open. They’re going fast, visit the registration page for details and to sign up.

Registration Open Now

Registration is now open for the 2017 Diez Vista 50km. The entry fee is $95 CDN and check out the Registration page for additional details and the link to the Race Roster to register.

Registration for the 100km opens at 7:00pm PST on Wednesday, November 23rd.

The 100km race is limited to just 75 entries and we have a strictly-enforced 15.5-hour cutoff time. Please give serious consideration to this cutoff time before registering.

Entry fee for the 100k will be $150 CDN.

Update re potential DV100k

Yes, we said “potential 100k”.

We will lead by saying that the 50km race will take place as is, as has always been the case. The DV website will be updated this weekend with registration rates and what will be included in registration this year.

The latest on the 100km race distance is that things are tracking well, but it is not yet a foregone conclusion and there is the potential for the 100km race to not be approved in time for our 2017 race launch. We have had mostly positive interactions, but we are up against the clock right now. 

If we are not fully approved by Friday, November 18th at 7am PST, we will forge ahead with the 50km race alone for 2017 and continue to push through a 2018 100km option.

There is about a 50-50 chance that the 100km option will come to fruition, but our big concern is for those who may have decided to focus on the DV100k in place of another 100km race at the same time of year. We will make an official announcement as soon as we know, or by Wednesday, November 16th at the very latest. To those who were leaning towards the DV100k instead of another race, please be aware and please judge your decision accordingly. If your other race option will sell out before we can get final approval, we’d recommend going with your guarantee rather than rolling the dice, and then joining us in 2018.

There are strict parameters that must be met to get approval for the 100km race and in line with these parameters the latest race update is this. The 100km race would potentially start at 6am, with a strict 15.5hr cutoff. There would be a 5:30am early start option for people to have 16 total hours if necessary. The course would not be a true two loops of the 50k course but would feature a few small nuances to meet the necessary regulations. You would run one full 50k loop and one slightly altered, opposite direction loop, IF we get approved.

We really want to keep everything above board and to ensure we don’t disappoint anyone. We are working diligently day in and day out to solve this and as soon as we know, one way or the other, you’ll know.

Thanks for reading and please share with any friends who may have been leaning towards the 100km race option.

Either way, we look forward to seeing everyone out at Sasamat Lake on Saturday, April 8th!

2017 race details

Diez Vista 2017 will be on Saturday, April 8th (always the second Saturday in April).

Registration will open in November (exact date to be confirmed and announced shortly).

This will be the 21st year and 20th running (one year was cancelled) of the DV50. We hope you’ll join us in April!

The hand-off……………………

The DV committee of Wendy, Martha, Bruce, Gail and myself are extremely pleased to announce that we are handing the ball to Gary Robbins and Geoff Langford of Ridgeline Events, organizers of Squamish 50 & Coast Mountain Trail Series for 2017 and subsequent years.
It has been a wonderful run but the time is right to turn our event over to one of Canada’s most complete and fastest growing race management teams. The Diez Vista 50km Trail Run will continue under this well established team with the promise of growth, new visions and an ever watchful eye on the history and tradition of this classic event. We wish them good success and dry trails.
We, the committee of the past few years, would sincerely like to thank every single supporter of DV-the volunteer, the runner and the stakeholder – for your ongoing commitment. Without your support and commitment, the DV would simply not be the event it is today. We trust that many of you will throw your selfless efforts behind the new leadership of the event we all love.
Happy Trails,
George
