WE ARE PROUDLY A CUP-FREE EVENT!

For all races and events, please bring your own reusable cup/container.  There will not be any cups for fluids at the aid stations or in the start finish area. Thank-you for being a part of our commitment to the environment! 



Description:

Bowness course.jpg

Beautiful Bowness Park is one of Calgary's inner city gems, with access to multiple single track trail connections.  The race begins in a large group picnic area beside the Bow River, with access to playgrounds, picnic shelters, creeks and the river. This is a wonderful location for our finale, so bring a blanket or your lawn chairs and stay a while.

The sport and enduro course will run along a shale path beside the river for a few hundred metres, cross under the Stoney Trail bridge, head up the pavement for about 1.5km and into the single track 12 mile coulee trails adjacent to the community of Tuscany.  Sport runners will complete one loop of the trails, and return to Bowness Park.  Enduro racers will come to the bottom of the single track trail, and head up for a second loop.  Please be aware, there are multiple creek crossings, so if you don't want to take time to use the stepping stones, be prepared to get wet!  Creeks are quite shallow.  But you may want to bring a change of shoes for after the race.
