Starting A New 5 Peaks Race Series

We’re expanding and we would love to have you join our team!

5 Peaks is always interested in discussing opportunities to start new races anywhere in Canada or the United States.  If you, or someone you know, is interested in starting a race or a series of races, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.  With over 30 events across Canada, we know how to put on great races and can help you get up and running!

Before you contact us, you should:

  • identify a race director or team who is interested in organizing the event.  This person or group of people should be organized, have some event experience, a love of trail running and importantly: a desire to build community.  Strong ties to the local running community and a good knowledge of social media will greatly improve your chances of success.
     
  • identify the trails/ parks you think would be ideal to host the race.  Make a few phone calls to the governing bodies for these parks to find out about permits and allowable group size for the races.  Our races tend to grow quickly so ideally the venue will need to accommodate at least 500 and up to 1000 people.
     

Once you have identified a race director and a few venues, please contact Amy Golumbia for more information:  amy@5peaks.com.

We look forward to hearing from you!
