National Partners:

New in 2015, Altra has come on as title running shoe sponsor of the 5 Peaks 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! Read more.

Monarch butterflies will be starting their multigenerational journey northward this spring, and they need your help! If you live in Ontario or Quebec, please consider buying a $5 milkweed seed packet from the David Suzuki Foundation when you register for a race. Milkweed is the plant monarchs lay their eggs on and monarch caterpillars eat. Your seed packet(s) will arrive at your door late this spring for you to get started creating a beautiful butterfly-friendly garden. With over 12,000 runners in the 5 Peaks Family, together we’ll give monarchs a warm welcome this summer.



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).


The Canadian Mountain and Trail Running Association was developed, in part, to allow Canadian Mountain Runners the opportunity to compete with their peers on the international stage at the World Mountain Running Trophy.
