Throwdown Thursdays: The North Face Trail Race Series

6:00pm - 8:30pm

Join Fernie Alpine Resort for this bi-weekly trail run race series presented by The North Face.

Runners test your skills on the trails up at Fernie Alpine Resort for this fun trail race series. Each race will be run on a different designated route and is open to all levels of trail runners. All racers get to enjoy a post race beverage and are eligible for prizing from The North Face!

All races are timed and runners will get their timed results at the end of each race. After each race, all participants are entered into a prize draw for awesome product from The North Face (regardless of what place they finished in). For those competitive racers out there don’t fear….your standings still count towards the overall series title! Competitors will earn points from each race based on their finish standings. These points culminate and at the final race on August 23rd, on top of our regular draw prizes, we will also give out Series Prizes prizes to the top 3 finishers in each category based off these point standings. Racers must compete in a minimum of 2 races over the season to be eligible for the overall series title and points from each of the 4 races count, so the more races you do the better your chance of being the series champion!

Categories include: Open Male (19yrs+), Open Female (19yrs+), Youth Male (18yrs and younger) and Youth Female (18 years and younger).

Runners can come out to one race or come to them all. Race dates are on:
July 12
July 26
August 9
August 23

Huge thanks to our race partners: The North FaceStag Leap Running Co and Cirque Restaurant.
