Grouse Mountain joins 2011 Vancouver Outgames

Grouse Mountain and the Vancouver 2011 Outgames have combined to provide a true west coast athletic experience for locals (in the know) and visitors yet to experience! The infamous “GROUSE GRIND” has been added to the line up of the Vancouver 2011 Outgames sports schedule as the 6K VERTICAL CHALLENGE.  Climbing nearly 2000m, racers will start the 6 km course on July 26th at 9am, from the foot of Grouse Mountain and race to the top of the most challenging hiking trail in the City commonly referred to as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster”! This course will be one of the most (literally) breath-taking sport events at the Games!
The Vancouver 2011 Outgames will include 10 sport elements supported by GLISA (International Sports Association of North America) running from July 25 – July 31, 2011
The week-long festival also includes a Human Rights Conference and Cultural Celebrations
