One mountain town, two mountain girls, with a mutual love for trails, races, sweat & exhilaration. And so was born Fernie’s First Annual Mountain Duathlon in 2010. This year, to mark the race's 10th Anniversary, they're planning another fantastically fun race for all the family, celebrating the amazing terrain and trails available in Fernie.

The Fernie Half Marathon has become a classic in southeastern BC with its all-trail course that winds along the Elk River and follows a community trail system that is both challenging and beautiful. For inspiration, you can also check out the awesome article in Canadian Running Magazine about the 2016 event.

This month’s Spin to Win contest is for the third leg of the Elk Valley Ultra. Let’s take you through the course.

Five hours in and the sun is out in full force. Your mind is whirling, your muscles are firing and your fingers are like cocktail sausages. But for some reason it feels just right. You feel strangely free. Free from everyday life, reality, decisions and time.

It’s pretty much a given that as summer excitement builds so do peoples’ exhilaration for all things outdoors. This is no more apparent than here in our active and supportive community, where I’m regularly amazed by people’s energy, efforts and endurance. Whatever sport, activity, event or challenge residents of Fernie choose to channel their energy into, a couple of things are certain: no one is going down without a fight and it’s never too late to start.

I didn’t really start running until I moved to Fernie nine years ago and the main reason I started was to help me quit smoking. I was always athletic and reasonably fit but had smoked for five years before I accepted the fact that it was killing me. Quitting was not an easy task, so to fight off the cravings I would go for a run. It was horrible and made me realize just how bad smoking had been for me. As it got easier and easier, I became more fit and started to enjoy running.
