Altra: Presenting running shoe sponsor of 5 Peaks Trail Running series.
We weren’t started in some corporate office, but in the back room of a Wasatch Mountain running store. Our founders, elite athletes and running store managers, wanted a shoe that let you run the way you were born to. They noticed that the design of most running shoes was hurting runners more than helping them. Elevated heels promote high-impact landing and narrow toe boxes squeeze the toes out of their natural position.
What began as experimental shoe alterations has transformed into the only shoe company to provide a cushioned Zero Drop platform and FootShape™ toe box. This innovative combo promotes low-impact technique and allows your feet to remain in a natural, relaxed position across every terrain. Altra will be donating a ton of great trail running shoes to the series this year!
Looking for a Bear Spray that really Delivers?
Our Canadian company began producing and selling bear deterrents and dog repellents 25 years ago, with a purpose to protect people and save lives from aggressive animal encounters in wilderness and urban locations.
Yukon Magnum bear deterrent offers you peace of mind when you are in bear country. This non-toxic, pepper based formulation is the strongest permitted in Canada, and is for use against an aggressive bear in an attack.
Lightweight and effective, each can of Yukon Magnum bear spray releases in cone shape over 20 feet. The spray provides temporary, non-lethal burning effects when sprayed at the bear’s face, to help you get away safely.
Yukon Magnum bear deterrent goes the distance to protect you when you need it most!
Energy is essential to life. Mitochondria provide our cells with energy. When the power supply in our cells fails, it's called mitochondrial disease. It can happen to anyone at any time and the consequences are devastating. The MitoCanada Foundation is Canada's only not-for-profit organization focused on mitochondrial disease. 5 Peaks is proud to support Mito Canada.If you'd like to learn more or join our team, visit www.mitocanada.org.
Fast and Female
Fast and Female is a non-for-profit organization led by two friends, rivals and moms who happen to be Olympic Gold Medalists, Chandra Crawford from Canada and Kikkan Randall from the USA. Fast and Female’s mission is to keep girls healthy and active in sport. We do this by introducing girls age 8-14 to inspiring athlete role models at non-competitive, fun-filled events all over North America.
The Canadian Ski Patrol was initially created to provide first aid and rescue services on ski hills and delivering this valued service still remains our core focus.
Over the past two decades, however, CSP services have extended beyond the ski hill to offer first aid/medical support, and full medical team coordination, for a long list of recreational sporting events for many organizations. As a result, our skilled volunteers have developed relationships and experience working in tandem with other volunteers, event organizers, police, fire and local Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
The key to our service at any time of year is that patrollers are self-sufficient, yet they excel in teamwork and prompt communication. Our people are trained to be mobile, they are well versed in treating athletic injuries, and fully capable of being the first response for any medical illness or trauma.
Last but not least, they are adept at diagnosing the situation, and solving it immediately with the appropriate (and available) tools before dispatching to Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
