Throwdown Thursdays – The North Face Trail Race Series
NEW FOR 2018!! Join us at Fernie Alpine Resort for this bi-weekly trail run race series.
Runners test your skills on the trails up at Fernie Alpine Resort for this fun trail race series. Each race will be run on a different designated route and is open to all levels of trail runners. All racers get to enjoy a post race beverage and are eligible for prizing from The North Face!
All races are timed and runners will get their timed results at the end of each race. After each race, all participants are entered into a prize draw for awesome product from The North Face and Stag Leap Running Co (regardless of what place they finished in). For those competitive racers out there don’t fear….your standings still count towards the overall series title! Competitors will earn points from each race based on their finish standings. These points culminate and at the final race on August 23rd, on top of our regular draw prizes, we will also give out Series Prizes prizes to the top 3 finishers in each category based off these point standings. Racers must compete in a minimum of 2 races over the season to be eligible for the overall series title and points from each of the 4 races count, so the more races you do the better your chance of being the series champion!
BONUS PRIZE – Do all four races over the summer and be entered into a draw to win a FREE entry to a Stag Leap race of your choice next summer!!
