Hikers Take On the Multi-Grouse Grind Challenge June 21st

Record number of athletes to participate in support of BC Children’s Hospital. (North Vancouver) Taking advantage of the most daylight hours of the year, Grouse Mountain’s Multi-Grouse Grind® Challenge takes place on the iconic trail Friday, June 21st between 4:00 am and 11:00 pm (gates close to participants at 10:00 pm). 

The Multi-Grouse Grind Challenge is the ultimate test of stamina as the most dedicated Grinders look to set a personal best or set the bar as the official record holder for the most number of Grinds completed during the single day event. In order for Grinds to be officially recognized, participants must adhere to the trail’s special operating times applicable for that day only. 
Last year’s top finisher Brooke Spence completed 17 Grouse Grinds during the event, which tied past record holder Ian Robertson. 
While this event showcases the impressive physical performance of participants, it is also an important fundraising event in support of BC Children’s Hospital. Last year’s event raised over $34,000 for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
