COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES
While we are very optimistic about our 2022 race, we thought the same in 2021. We'll be closely monitoring restrictions, and planning our 2022 race in line with whatever COVID-19 guidelines are required to keep our participants, volunteers and community safe.
Please note: Fernie Alpine Resort's Summer 2022 COVID-19 Safety and Vaccination policies have not yet been confirmed. Their current policy for Winter 2021/22 season states that proof of COVID vaccination is required to visit Fernie Alpine Resort. Please be aware that if you register as an unvaccinated racer, you may not be able to race.
Please read Stag Leap's evolving COVID-19 Special Operating Plan + Safety Policy, HERE.
BUYING + SELLING ENTRIES
As we have a substantial wait list, we will only be allowing entries to be sold to those on the wait list - in order from top to bottom. If you are entered and cannot race, please reach out and we will assist with the sale in a fair fashion.
Now in its 6th (actual 4th) year, this high-vert, challenging 50km, encompassing some of Fernie’s best trails and jaw dropping views, full of #FernieStoke is back…with a difference.
2022 sees the inaugural NEW course. Panic not, the iconic Leg 1 over Mt. Fernie remains as is, with changes to Leg 2 and 3 - wave goodbye to Stupid Traverse, and hello to some other epic climbs and views. The new route is just as good, just as hard and just as beautiful - possibly even more so! Additionally, we are sadly no longer able to offer Teams – this race is SOLO only.
With ~2,898m of climbing and a whole lot of amazing Fernie single track, the route makes the Elk Valley Ultra a fun yet challenging race experience, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
