The Salty Dog team is beyond grateful for your support and stands with you during this challenging time, we have made the tough decision to postpone the 2020 Salty Dog right to May 2021.

We are moving the 2020 Salty Dog weekend into 2021 in an effort to support flattening the curve and reduce the spread of COVID-19. Please understand this decision did not come easily. Salty Dog was to celebrate its 20th Anniversary next month. For 19 years, community near & far has come together to ride, high five, create lasting friendships and enjoy all that is Shuswap. We know this will continue in 2021.

We understand there will be some mixed feelings on the cancellation of the 2020 event but we are taking every step to ensure the health and wellness of our riders, volunteers, families, supporters and community members is protected.

All registrations for 2020 will be deferred to the 2021 Salty Dog, the Salty weekend May 14-16, 2021. In regard to registration for 2021, nothing further needs to be done on your end right now. We will reach out late next fall and provide you with the details for the 2021 event.
Email any questions or comments to, and see our website for all race updates, past results and photos.

We hope you continue to ride, set goals and enjoy the outdoors as recommended by Provincial/Federal Government. Wash your hands, take social distancing seriously and we will get through this together.

Thank you for your kindness, understanding and working with us during these unprecedented times.

Salty Dog Organizing Committee & Shuswap Cycling Club

The Salty Dog 6-Hour Enduro is one of the longest running mountain bike races in B.C. – Ride solo or in a team of 2 for 6 hours on some of the best trails in Salmon Arm, B.C. Cyclists of all ages can join in the fun with the Salty Pup race, the 3-Hour Enduro, and the full 6-Hour Enduro. Skookum Cycle & Ski and the Shuswap Cycling Club are excited to announce that they have entered into a partnership which will ensure that the Salty Dog 6-Hour enduro race continues for many years to come!

A six hour mountain bike race with lots of ups and downs. Enter as a team of 2 or do the fully monty and do it solo and earn mad props. And maybe a pie. Categories include men/women and solo/mixed.

A three hour version of the 6 Hour Enduro for those under 15. This is a fantastic stepping stone for the main race! Team up with a buddy and do as many laps of the 5km course as you can in 3 hours.

The Salty Pup is a one hour fun race for young rippers with 20-24″ wheeled bikes. The 2ish km course weaves and rolls it’s way through the forest right by the staging area for the main event, so parents and riders alike can cheer everyone on.

The Jr. Salty Pup is absolutely perfect for riders 3+ on 12-16″ wheeled pedal or run bikes. The 30 minute course goes through gently rolling terrain near the finish area and provides for plenty of photo opportunities along the trail.
