It was a perfect day on Sunday for the Squamish Days 8K and Flashback Mile. The event drew a huge crowd for the long weekend race. 

The men’s 8K winner was Drew Nicholson in 27:28. Nicholson paced the out-and-back course perfectly to win the event after coming second five years ago. Nicholson’s next race will likely be the Under Armour Eastside 10K

The Flashback Mile commemorates one of the first-ever races held in Squamish. The event is popular with kids, but there’s also an open category for adults who prefer for shorter distances.
