Description:

Back by popular demand.  We have been given permission again to host a race on the beautiful trails in Fish Creek Park starting at Sikome Beach area, and running out past the Bow Valley Ranch Visitor Centre. This course is largely flat, but a few steep hills thrown in for fun! You will run from Sikome parking lot up through a forest, down a hill, along the river, past the Ranch House and out into the trails on the north side of Fish Creek. See photos for more details. 

The Sport course will head out to a turnaround at approximately 3.0km and then back for a total of about 6.4km. The Enduro Course goes out, does a loop near the river, and comes back along the same last 2.5k for a total of just over 11km (approximately).

*Package pickup is race morning (see schedule below).  Or if you would prefer, you can pickup at Strides Fish Creek location on Friday night between 5pm and 8pm.  Address:

1119, 380 Canyon Meadows Dr. S.E.
