Run - Paraglide - Mountain bike, all in one day!
A unique and spectacular event like no other in the Sea-to-Sky.
This is our fourth Aerothlon event in the beautiful Pemberton Valley.
The course consists of an approximate 3,000ft, 1000 metre vertical run from the valley up to the Upper Mackenzie Paraglide launch where then a 6km paraglide flight to the designated landing area, (we may put in a GPS point and longer flight depending on conditions) then a 14km mountain bike loop back to the start and finish area.
