Registration for the 2018 Marathon Shuffle is now closed.

We will be capping registration for the Full and Half Shuffles at 350 each, so be sure to register early.

Powell River Parks and Wilderness Society (PRPAWS) is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Marathon Shuffle in 2018.

The Full and Half Shuffle will be held on separate days in 2018 and the Half Shuffle will take place on a different section of the Sunshine Cost Trail than in previous years.

The full, 29-kilometre Shuffle will be held on Sunday, April 29. It will follow the traditional route from Malaspina Road to the Shinglemill.

The Half Shuffle will be held the day before, on Saturday, April 28. It will follow the Sunshine Coast Trail from Haywire Bay to the Shinglemill, an 8-kilometre route. The Half Shuffle is being sponsored by Tla’amin Nation’s 2020 Tribal Canoe Journey group and all donations during the Half Shuffle will go towards this initiative.

These are PEOPLE ONLY events! While we love dogs and welcome them on the Sunshine Coast Trail every other day of the year, we ask that you leave your furry friends home for both events. THERE ARE NO DOGS ALLOWED ON THE MARATHON SHUFFLE.

If you register for the shuffle and then discover you cannot make it, PLEASE LET US KNOW ASAP so that we can make room for someone else. Last year we had a number of people who didn’t show up, which meant that people who would have liked to do the shuffle could not. Please help us to avoid that situation by COMING if you register, and CANCELLING if you cannot make it. THANK YOU!
