Stag Leap is up and Running!
Two weeks in, and we couldn’t be happier! Since our inaugural Elevation Showcase sponsored Run Club on Monday April 11th, we’ve had 73 attendees hit the trails over 4 Club runs – a fantastic turnout of familiar faces, and many new, of all ages and experiences.
Catering to the novice, intermediate and those looking for more of a challenge, our twice weekly runs have so far ranged from 5-12km. With each run, splitting into two groups, tackling the same area of trails.
With the incredible early season and so many trails to choose from, we’re spoilt for choice. So far we’ve enjoyed the Montane Area, offering cruising, flowy singletrack. And Ridgemont, where consistent climbs, and rewarding downhill awaits. And, as it’s a Fernie Run Club, everyone is game for going that extra mile…or rather 3km, sorry ladies!
Beginners to the more accomplished runner, are welcome to Run Club, with efforts to cater to everyone who comes. Runs are aimed to take place on primarily single track, heading to new routes each week. The meeting place is our kind sponsor, Elevation Showcase on 2nd Ave, but to check for changes to times and meet locations, please be sure to like and check our Stag Leap Running Co. Facebook Page. And to reward your efforts, each week everyone who runs is entered into a draw for a prize from Elevation Showcase!
The current other Stag Leap offering at present is our Sunday Training Runs. Thought of as a sup’d-up Run Club, catering to those looking for a strong training run, working for race or specific training goals. Last weekends was a vert filled adventure on Swine Flu, over to Oh Dear, and down through Ridgemont. This coming weekend is set for an adventure up the other side of town, into the Provincial Park, and back. Plans for Sunday’s Training Runs range from 20km+, big climbs, or long Fernie style adventures. Each week’s run is posted on our Facebook Page, to see if it fits peoples speeds and needs!
Furthermore, thanks to Eveliene, we’ve a brand new supporter come on board – The Park Place Pub, who is to be our amazing post-run hub for all things social and recovery! Our first social is scheduled for Thursday April 28th, at 7.30PM. We hope to see you there for a pint…or two.
We thank everyone so much for their support so far, all those who’ve helped lead runs, and our kind Run Club sponsor Elevation Showcase.
With a fun (and long!) season ahead of us, and a number of events, socials and races planned, we look forward to a fantastic first year of Stag Leap Running Co.
Thanks, Abi & Mike
