Race the Rockies!

Join us in rockin' Canmore on Saturday, June 9th, 2018.

Sitting at the gates of Banff National Park, Canmore is loaded with great trails, hip eateries, boutiques & towering mountains. Combine Canmore's legendary small town vibe with their pure Rockies' fresh air and this race is one of the must-do runs of the year! 

On-location at the 1988 Winter Olympics site, this race takes place at the Canmore Nordic Centre. Run surrounded by high mountain peaks as you pass through alpine forests on the Centre's world-class trails. With only 175m elevation gain on the Sport course, this is a great event for those wanting to trail running in a spectacular mountain environment for the first time.

*Please remember that the Nordic Centre requires that all racers carry bear spray during their run. This is a rule that applies to all events held at the Canmore Nordic Centre. If you have any questions about this, please call the Canmore Nordic Centre directly at 403-678-2400. Children are not required to carry bear spray. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation!
