Salty Dog Enduro

May 13th – 15th, 2022

March, 2021 Update

Hello Salty Dog Riders,

This continues to be a challenging time and we hope you are well, safe and healthy. We have been working our way through engaging stakeholders, updating event permitting and establishing a COVID-19 Safety Protocol in compliance with Interior Health Authority, BC Centre for Disease Control & the Provincial Health Officer. Unfortunately, with the ever-evolving COVID-19 challenges, we do not feel we can achieve a safe, transmission free event and have made the tough decision to cancel the 2021 Salty Dog Event. We are offering riders three options that we feel are realistic within the current Covid-19 world. These options will include: deferment until 2022, refund, or a donation of race fees to the Shuswap Cycling Club. Riders will be sent an email to respond back clearly to us.

As with any large event, over the past 18 months we have experienced normal planning expenses such as website/social media upgrades, administration, trail tenure commitments, operating expenses and also need to account for the additional administrative costs of sending refunds to riders.

Email any questions or comments to, and see our website for all race updates, past results and photos. You can also check out our Facebook page and Instagram profile.

Thank you for your 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.
