Sun Peaks hosts the inaugural Osprey Canadian National Enduro Championships this Sunday, Sept. 18. 
Enduro is a biking discipline defined by having untimed climbs combined with timed descents over a variety of terrain.
This is the third year of the B.C. Enduro series, which is broken up into east and west categories spanning destinations from Vancouver to Canmore, Alta. This year is the first time ever for the national championship series to crown the nation's best enduro racers.
"We couldn't be happier to be hosting our first ever National Enduro Championship in Sun Peaks, the quality and diversity of trails offered set the mountain resort apart as one of the premier destinations for endure,” said event director Ted Morton. “It's also the first time ever a mountain resort has opened up exclusive off-season chairlift access for our athletes."
Attracting the best enduro athletes from across the country, the four-race championship series hosted events in Rossland, Mont-Sainte-Anne, Quebec, and Revelstoke before making their way to Sun Peaks for the finale.
The event will also feature Kamloops local, recent World Cup winner, Olympic bronze-medalist, and cross-country superstar, Catharine Pendrel.
