Beautiful day for the 'Cap Crusher' trail run with these guys. Great day, great event... hope to do more of these. πŸŒ²πŸƒπŸ» #trailrunning #capcrusher

First race of 2017 couldn't be a more perfect day! β˜€οΈπŸ #coastmountaintrailseries #capcrusher

This little owl ran her first race today at the @coastmtntrail event! She may not have won but she sure had fun! #trailtoddler #fallingispartofthefun #capcrusher

The second race in the Coast Mountain Trail Series is in the books. Over 200 runners took to the trails in Capilano Canyon today for an 8k and 13k leg thrasher called the Cap Crusher.
Congrats to all who lined up and you're welcome for the nicest and warmest day of the year thus far :)

Ten points if you recognize where this terrain feature is located. Runners go right past it, but it's easily missed while focussing on the terrain underfoot and all the other fun forest features along the way.

Sprint finish for the podium at the #capcrusher 13k. 3rd place. No dog bites this time :) Thanks @chrisoj for the ace race coaching, the πŸ“Έs, and the recovery run. Props to @garyrobbins for sweet course flagging and finish-line cheering #coastmountaintrailseries

Cap Crusher course marking.

Still smiling, so this must be before I ran past a well marked turn. Lost a couple of spots but still finished 11th OA. Thanks again to @abbytrailrunningclub for the free entry, and to @coastmtntrail for a fun and well marked course. I'm really good at getting lost. #trailrunning #capcrusher #headsup πŸ“· @christhornphoto

pre-race smiles. before we saw the hills... #capcrusher

Crushed some caps with these inspiring ladies this morning (okay, maybe it was more us getting crushed but who really cares when you are having fun in the trails, right?) #capcrusher #bestlifeproject #CMTS #trailrunning #runhappy

Capilano Canyon, as beautiful as ever.
The first race course I ever designed from scratch was The Cap Crusher, an 8k / 13k trail race in Cap Canyon that we host via my @coastmtntrail series in March.
I always get a chuckle out of that course design now, because it's quite a crazy route full of twists, turns, loops and overlaps. That race reflects my limited course building knowledge at the time, while also confirming that we could put together a volunteer plan and team of people to ensure runners could safely navigate through anything we put forth, from start to finish.

Five years on and I'm putting a critical eye to a lot of my CMTS races. My goal for 2018 is to increase distance options in our shorter events. After going over maps of the canyon for hours I finally settled on what I consider the best new Cap Crusher race route, and today I finally had a chance to run it. I know it's tough to trust an opinion from someone who's essentially talking about their own product, but I thoroughly enjoyed the newly designed course. It's much more runnable, less choppy, more flow, more scenic, and I managed to cut our volunteer course marshal needs in half. Win, win :) If all goes well we'll bring forth an entirely new 12.5k and 25k Cap Crusher race next March. This is the 10% of my job that gets to happen outside, on the trails, and though I love what I do for a living these 10% moments really help to balance out all the computer screen time and endless email communications.

Trails, they're good for the soul.

For those about to run, we salute you! Can we take a moment to recognize that this very brave man ran the whole race in a pair of black jeans?

What a race! Oh those hills!!
Had such a good time this year at #capcrusher. It was a little chilly in the morning but running those hills cured that problem and by the end of the race it was a beautiful day.

#fitspeekrepost from @bjbruder πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦This past Saturday I put on a peanut butter toast costume and toasted (mwaha) the folks running #capcrusher on a crisp coastal morning! Cool to get to be a part of the action in some way. Runners did either an 8- or 13k course on trails in our very own Cleveland Dam Park! Some impressive times and great looking strides. #🍞#cmts2017 #TimeToPlay #salomon @coastmtntrail #trailrunning #getoutside

Post-race dance party at the @coastmtntrail #capcrusher on Sunday, always good times at the finish line! πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ”πŸ’ƒπŸ»

"Cap Crusher" was more like "Cap Cruiser" for us for a few reasons. Regardless, we still had the best day on the trails. Next year I will definitely crush this one! @coastmtntrail is a fantastic trail race series. #cmt #capcrusher #coastmountaintrailseries #trailrunning #motherdaughterdate #marathontraining #habakkuk319 #phil413
