Set up by a husband and wife trail running duo, Stag Leap Running Co. is Fernie’s Trail Running resource.
Spending as much time as possible running the amazing trails of Fernie, Mike and Abi Moore are as passionate about running trails, as they are getting others to join in the fun. So they've built a much needed local resource to help grow a trail running community in their awesome little mountain town of Fernie.
"With so many trails to explore, mountains to climb, and likeminded runners to meet, we hope, through Stag Leap's community offerings, coaching, races and events, we can help Fernie become the strong, passionate and much loved trail running community that it’s ready to be." states Abi Moore.
Abi is a Brit who’s been living in Fernie since 2006, despite only coming for one winter to ski. Now she spends most of her time racing, running, talking about running, purchasing running items, encouraging others to run, and organising local Fernie races, such as Fernie Tears & Gears. As a kid she hated running, but it’s now become a huge part of her life and makes her a lot happier and healthier for it. Abi is now an Ultra Runner and outside of running career she works with Fernie Brewing Co. as their Marketing & PR Manager.
Mike started running 15 years ago, on a casual basis, to get the dog out. These days he trains hard on the trails of Fernie for a busy, demanding race season all over North America and beyond. A huge advocate of proper form and technique, he’s happy to chat running all night…over a few Fernie Brewing Co. beers of course.
