  • Are you a runner? You are right at home here in the Pass! There are a variety of races depending on what style of running you're into:

    • Sinister 7 Ultra: held in July every year, this gruelling 160km race takes you quite literally all over the Crowsnest Pass. Participate as a soloist or as part of a relay team.

    • Sole Survivor: this fun trail race is held every summer at Pass Powderkeg. There is a 2.5km run/walk, 5km run/walk, and a 10km run.

    • Meet the Minotaur: this race demands everything you have in you. It's set in the high alpine of the CNP and the best part is the course remains a complete mystery until race day (and it changes every year)! This race occurs in August each year.

    • Run the Rocks: a brand new race this year (September 2019), this race makes you navigate your way across the entirety of the rock debris from the Frank Slide. Feel like Sid Choquette did on the morning of April 29, 1903 when he ran through the rocks to warn an oncoming train of the slide.
