The Elk Valley Ultra 50km takes place on Saturday July 29th, 2017.

A high-vert, challenging 50km trail run race which can be run solo or as part of a 3-person relay. Starting and finishing in the Annex Park, alongside the Elk River, the route is set to encompass some of Fernie’s best and beautiful, yet un-raced trails. Including the iconic Mount Fernie to Windy Pass, down to Island Lake Lodge stunning high alpine route. The beautiful Old Growth Forest, infamous Project 9 climb and the aptly named Stupid Traverse.

Followed by the deserving reward of the flowy, cedar filled Provincial Park Trails, over into Fernie Alpine Resort and home. With ~3,000m of climbing, it’s set to be an amazing route promising 95% single track, and 5% double track. No roads, no outs and backs. A route as challenging as it is beautiful, steep as it is rewarding. It’s pretty much 50km of #ferniestoke.
