Race Information

Building on the success and popularity of the Perseverance Trail Run established in 2003 and the overwhelming demand for an ultra-running event in the Comox Valley, Perseverance Adventure Club presents the Devil’s Ladder Ultra. An epic trail race that features world-class singletrack in a spectacular rainshadow forest ecosystem.

Not ready to take on an ultramarathon just yet. Maybe “your feet hurt”, “you’re too busy to train” or “you’re just not a morning person.” No worries, we have options for everyone 😉

Devil’s Ladder Ultra has three races distances to choose from, including the 15k Fun Fun, the Dirty 30k, and the Full Send 50k. All three distances will take place in the Cumberland Forest and will treat runners to challenging climbs, flowy singletrack, and quad smashing downhills. You aren’t going to want to miss this one!  

The fun doesn’t stop when you cross the finish line. The start and finish for all three races will be located at Village Park in Cumberland. We plan to take advantage of this amazing value by providing all day music, delicious post-race food for our racers, and a beer garden that will all be conveniently located close to the finish line so you can help us cheer on each and every racer. 

We are doing everything we can to set the stage for an unforgettable experience for our racers, volunteers, and spectators. Join us for an incredible day of running and camaraderie on July 29th, 2023. 

See you on the trails!
