Salty Dog Enduro

May 13th – 15th, 2022


COVID-19 continues to provide us with a challenging time and we hope you are well, safe and healthy.

We are working our way through engaging stakeholders, updating event permits and establishing a COVID-19 Safety Protocol in compliance with Interior Health Authority, BC Centre for Disease Control & the Provincial Health Officer.

We will host the Salty Dog Enduro Events on May 13-15, 2022 and are currently planning to ensure our 20 year event will meet Interior Health BC guidelines and restrictions. The Pup & U15 events will run Saturday May 14, and Salty Dog Race will run Sunday May 15.

Provincial guidelines/restrictions around COVID-19 are fluid and as such we are event-planning to ensure the health and wellness of our riders, volunteers and community members is protected. At the present moment, Interior Health BC allows large outdoor events (similar to Salty Dog Enduro) with 100% completely vaccinated participants, spectators, volunteers. Vaccine Passports will be required to pick up race packages for the 2022 event. We understand that this may change but for now, these are the guidelines/restrictions we will be planning for in 2022.

With our changing government event permitting we are currently planning for Covid safer race format. All our local stakeholders and governing bodies that supply us with the needed event permits require an event with smaller groups mingling about over the course of the day. If things change and open up more between now and May 15, we will consider running a traditional Salty Dog event.

As such we are currently planning to be Changing it Up and will celebrate 20 years of the Salty Dog Enduro with a different format which will allow space for evolving Interior Health BC event guidelines/restrictions.

The Salty Dog 6-Hour Enduro is one of the longest running mountain bike races in B.C. – Traditionally, it has been an event where you could 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 could 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!
