Justin Trudeau returns to the Grouse Grind in North Vancouver

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      The prime minister was back on Nature's Stairmaster today.

      Justin Trudeau hoofed up the Grouse Grind in North Vancouver—nearly four years after he famously hiked the 2.9-kilometre trail during the 2015 election campaign.

      At that time, Trudeau challenged his much older and heavier opponents, Stephen Harper and Tom Mulcair, to also ascend the Grind.

      They chose not to climb the 2,830 stairs, which rise 853 metres up, and ended up losing the election.

      This year, Trudeau reportedly beat his 2015 time by a couple of minutes, clocking in at 52:55.

      It came on the same day that one of his rivals, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, was nominated to run in Burnaby South.

      Below, you can see some images of Trudeau captured by others who were on the mountain at the same time.
