ABOUT

Now in its 6th year, our high-vert, challenging 50km, encompassing some of Fernie’s best trails and jaw dropping views, returns, along with its punchy 15km counterpart.

Those going the full distance will take on the iconic Leg 1 up and over Mt. Fernie, onto Rocky Road, down to Island Lake Lodge Catskiing, before cruising through the Old Growth. Leg 2 follows the old Rail Trail, heading up punchy Verboten, before a fast descent onto the rolling, loamy Provincial Park trails, over to Fernie Alpine Resort. Leg 3 (the 15km race), is a tour of the ski hill, climbing all the way up through Cedar Bowl to the base of the dramatic Headwall, before traversing all the way across into Timber Bowl for a steep descent to the Finish Line.

Whatever distance you choose, there are guaranteed views, epic climbs, amazing single track and fun descents, making the Elk Valley Ultra a classic, challenging race experience in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
