Back by popular demand, (actually no one has mentioned it but I love dress up), the 2nd Annual "Dash in the Dark" Run Club!

Basically weekly Run Club, but with dress up being far more important than Strava records, or in fact mileage. Wear your best costume plus headlamp, for a hilarious trot around the trails. Bring payment for a compulsory beer afterwards!

Meet at the Dirt Jump Parking lot for a 6.30PM start. Prizes for best (worst) dressed...

The Lone Wolf is a new 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.

The course will be a beautiful, manageable, single track loop, with moderate elevation gain. Around the 7km mark, it will be easy enough to complete within the cutoff time for most, however pacing and tactics will come into play as the day goes on.

November is a good time to reflect on the season and recharge your batteries. You never know what you are going to get for weather this month or what activities will be available. Skiing, hiking or biking, maybe all three?

Meet at the old Fas (No) Gas for a fun (beside the Aquatic Centre) for a 10km loop in Montane. Dress up, head lamps and post-run beers required. A fun loop, with a few surprises along the way. Plus prizes for best dressed, so crack open that tickle trunk!

(Entire event inspired by Ana Theresa and her love of fun, adventurous times, in questionable outfits.)
