ABOUT THE RACE
Race is capped at 150 participants.
The Lewiston Ultra Moose Mountain (start & finish) is hosted in the West Bragg Creek Recreational area parking lot (coordinates for navigation system/Google Map: 50.948329, -114.691772)
The first annual Moose Mountain Trail Races (Moose Mountain Marathon & 10 Mile Telephone Run) was held September 12, 1992 by the Rolling Hills Marathon, Running Room, Running Room Club, Calgary Road Runners, Bow Valley Runners & the Community of Bragg Creek. The event was created to carry on the tradition of the Rolling Hills Marathon.
Rolling Hills Marathon was created in 1971 by Fritz and Mitzi Mansch with the assistance of the Wiebe’s & local residents. The event provided a unique experience including a challenging course, awards and a celebration lunch. This community tradition continued for 21 years before it was updated with Moose Mountain Marathon & 10 Mile Telephone Run.
Moose Mountain Trail Races continued on the tradition of Moose Mountain Marathon & 10 Mile Telephone Run and Rolling Hills Marathon until its final sanction race on August 24, 2019. For 26 years, this run event gave back to community, celebrated many successes and left all runners, volunteers, organizers and supporters with incredible memories. Race Director of The Lewiston Ultra events, Kara Leinweber, was fortunate to be included as volunteer Race Director along side Alan Lam & Jen Silverthorn in the final 4 years of Moose Mountain Trail Races.
The Lewiston Ultra is beyond honored to continue the traditions of the Moose Mountain Trail Races and host an exceptional run experience, community connection and give back to Love for Lewiston & community. The Lewiston Ultra Moose Mountain will host its first sanctioned race on August 22, 2020.
The Lewiston Ultra is inspired by Lewiston James Olstad and community. Lewiston reminded us all to squeeze a little harder, love a little longer and savor the moments we tend to wish away. Lewiston was small and mighty and encouraged community to rise up, persevere and run towards your roar. To learn more about Lewiston Olstad's journey, visit www.loveforlewiston.ca
The Lewiston Ultra gives back to Love For Lewiston, Greater Bragg Creek Trail Association, Moose Mountain Bike Trail Society, Foothills Search & Rescue & several other community/volunteer organizations and shareholders.
