Fernie has an amazing and ever-growing trail network, perfect for a wide variety of races throughout the year. As Stag Leap and the Fernie running community continues to grow, we hope to add more races and events to the calendar.
In 2016, our inaugural year, we hosted The King of the Castle Vertical Climb, and Trails in Motion 4 Film Festival in July. Along with group runs galore, a Salomon shoe demo, treasure hunts, trails runs and beer tastings and in the midst of winter, an Ice Bug shoe demo.
2017 saw the main focus fall on the Elk Valley Ultra 50km & Relay, the last weekend in July. A challenging, high-vert ultra on some of Fernie’s un-raced and most beautiful trails. King of the Castle and Trails in Motion 5 Film Festival took place earlier in the month, for a second successful year. With so many Fernie runners gearing up for the EVU, on a team or as a soloist, there were lots of groups hitting the trails in preparation. A huge success, with a firm place on the Stag Leap Race calendar.
