“We are so thrilled to be hosting the 2024 BC Championships for Cross Triathlon. Squamish has become a world-class destination for mountain biking and trail running and boasts some of the region’s most loved and accessible lakes, with steep forested hills descending right down to the water’s edge. It is with a great sense of pride that we welcome a field of cross athletes to our community and support the growth of this incredibly exciting, dynamic sport in BC!
