Racers will get one lap down the designated course and are timed via our manual Webscorer App. The course will be open to the public all day, and racers are encouraged to take a practice run as no formal training run will occur. Following the race, competitors can head over to Legend’s and trade in their race plate for a cold beverage to enjoy as times are tabulated. The prize ceremony will follow in the plaza approx. 20-30 min after the last racer has crossed the finish line. Weekly prizes are given out via draw prizes, plus competitors accumulate points at each race, and series champions in each category are crowned at the final race on September 1 (please note racers must compete in a minimum of 3 races over the season to qualify for the overall standings).


All racers must check in at the designated Ticket Office Window in the plaza on the day of the race to pay their $5 registration fee and collect their race plate. The dedicated check-in window will be open from 3pm – 6pm every Thursday. Racers not checked in by 6pm will forfeit their spot.

Please note all competitors MUST complete their Event Waiver(s) online prior to check-in.


Racing will start at 6:30 pm on Thursdays, and we will have staggered start times to avoid any crowding at the start area. Each racer will be allocated a specific start time. Competitors will not be permitted to enter the start area until 5 minutes before their race time. Only competitors and race officials will be allowed in the starting area. Start times will be posted at check-in.


The course will be announced on each race day and posted here and on the Fernie Alpine Resort Facebook page.
