An endurance race with a twist - strategy, fuel management, and teamwork will all matter here.

The Lone Wolf is a trail running challenge in Fernie, BC. A simple, fun, looped race. But there’s a catch. Racers start together on the hour as a pack, needing to finish the loop within the hour. As when the next hour strikes, the race starts again, in the opposite direction. The goal? To complete as many loops as you can. So, do you think you can outrun the pack and become The Lone Wolf?

REGISTRATION:

Online registration is scheduled to open December 1st, subject to landowner approval.

ROUTE:

The route is a beautiful, manageable, single-track loop, with moderate elevation gain. Around the 7km mark, it will on paper seem easy enough to complete within the cutoff time, however pacing and tactics will come into play as the day progresses.

  • Singletrack loop, approx 6.8km with 220m elevation gain.
  • Washing-machine style format – heading clockwise, then counterclockwise, then clockwise and so on. 
  • Route will be the same as 2019. Full details on STRAVA

RACE INFO:

  • 'Last Man Standing' format, easy enough to complete within the cutoff time for most, however pacing and tactics will come into play as the day goes on.
  • Racers will have 1 hour to complete the loop and be ready to start the next loop on the hour. If you miss the cutoff, you’re out and you remain in the den.
  • Start/Finish DEN location: Elk Valley Nordic Centre, 500 Mt Fernie Park Road.
  • Well-stocked aid station.
  • Easy logistics for one drop bag at the base.
