A high-vert, challenging 50km trail run race which can be run solo or as part of a 3-person relay.

Event Cancelled for 2020 due to COVID-19

Starting and finishing in the Annex Park alongside the Elk River, the route is set to encompass some of Fernie’s best and beautiful trails for 50km of #ferniestoke.


Online registration is scheduled to begin January 1st, 2020; subject to local landowner approval.


Be prepared for a wide variety of terrain including steep and rewarding high alpine climbs, back-country routes, old-growth forest, flowy provincial park trails and rewarding views throughout the valley on 95% singletrack. With ~3,000m of climbing, it’s set to be an amazing run. No roads, no out-and-backs. A route as challenging as it is beautiful, steep as it is rewarding.
