In the most anticipated BMO Grouse Grind Mountain Run to date, Sebastian Salas was able to hold onto his title as champion. Despite tough competition from USA Mountain Runner of the year (three years running) Joseph Gray, local athletes Joren and Morgan Titus and an array of other super-charged Grouse Grind athletes, Sebastian stayed on top with a winning time of 25:10! Last year Sebastian set the course record bar at an incredibly impressive 25:01, only to barely miss that mark this year.

In the women’s elite, Stephanie Hamilton took the top spot on the podium with a remarkable time of 32:28. 

 Close to 600 ambitious hikers took on the challenge of the BMO Grouse Grind Mountain Run this year with race participants ranging in age from 6 to 77. This event is for everyone from elite athletes to amateur competitors - whether you have a Grind Time of your own to beat, or just want to be part of the excitement (and yes, gruelling hike). This year’s charitable recipient was, once again, BC Children’s Hospital through Grouse Mountain’s Grind For Kids Program. Race participants were asked to collect pledges for every Grouse Grind completed during the season and will continue to do so over the coming days. So far this year, Grind for Kids has raised over $100,000 for BC Children’s Hospital and this total will keep growing. 

Thanks to all of the participants, volunteers and supporters who showed up to make this event a success!
