What's On

WNMS Events

The primary events for the WNMS are the Emperor's Challenge in August, the Canada Day Hike on July 1st, Itchy Feet presentations in February to March and various volunteer workbees from May to October.

Flatbed Loops

THURSDAYS 7PM At the Flatbed Lions Campground, besides the Bridge
Now in it's 20th year, Flatbed Loops is a popular weekly event promoting healthy lifestyles. The vigorous ~2km hilly route climbs up some steep inclines and then back down Suicide Hill to the finish. The alternative, flat ~2km circular route leads through the forest and is suitable for all. Young and old, runners, joggers, walkers, residents and visitors - all are welcome to take part. Times are recorded to track your season's progression and typically range from seven to forty minutes. Those who are not competitive are welcome to join for the  social aspect, scenery and clean, fresh air with like-minded folks. Flatbed Loops provides valuable training for participants of the TR Triathlon in June and the Emperor’s Challenge in August. Up to a hundred people typically take part over a season, although we've seen almost sixty in a single evening; an amazing number for a small community! Dogs must be on leash at all times.

Itchy Feet

In the winter months, the WNMS puts on a series of travel presentations in partnership with the Tumbler Ridge Library. Guest speakers share their photos and stories from destinations around the world. Get inspired for your next adventure!
