New Cancelation Policy
If you do not wish to race you have until 5 pm on race day to cancel your registration, either by email or phone to Guest Services. If you do not show up to a race without notice, your registration for any future races will be canceled.
We have a big waitlist for every race this year so it is important you communicate with us as early as possible if you wish to cancel.
We are back for another year of Thursday Night Races at Fernie Alpine Resort!
Come out every Thursday for an evening of fun, gravity-fed mountain biking, great post-race draw prizes from SCOTT and Fox, and post-race refreshments at Legends Mountain Eatery!
We have made some essential changes to this year’s events to ensure we are providing a safe environment for everyone involved. Please read the following details with major changes highlighted in RED.

REGISTRATIONS ARE GOING ONLINE!
To minimize contact points and ensure we are adhering to the public health recommendations surrounding COVID-19, we will NOT be taking onsite registrations. ALL registrations must be completed ONLINE before 6:00 pm on race day.
Registrations for each event will be limited this year, so get in quick to secure your spot!
Entry fee is $5 (includes race and post-race drink at Legends Mountain Eatery).
Lift ticket or a season pass is required to access the race course. (Lift ticket is not included in entry fee).
Note: The registration link is for the entire series, but you don’t have to register for all races at once. You can use the same link to register each week for that given race.
All racers must check-in at Guest Services on the day of the race to pay their $5 registration fee and collect their race plate. The dedicated check-in desk at Guest Services will be open from 3 pm – 6 pm every Thursday.
Format: Racers will get one lap down the designated course and are timed via our manual Webscorer App. The course will be open to the public all day and racers are encouraged to take a practice run as no formal training run will take place. Following the race, competitors can head over to Legends Mountain Eatery and trade in their race plate for a cold beverage to enjoy as times are tabulated. The prize ceremony will follow at Legends approx. 20-30 min after the last racer has crossed the finish line. Weekly prizes are given out via draw prizes plus competitors accumulate points at each race, and series champions in each category are crowned at the final race on September 3rd (please note racers must compete in a minimum of 3 races over the season in order to qualify for the overall standings).
Racing will start at 6:30 pm this year to ensure we can stagger start times and avoid any crowding at the start area. We will be running staggered starts and each racing category will be given a specific start time. Competitors will not be permitted to enter the start area until 5 minutes before their race time. Only competitors and race officials will be allowed in the starting area (exceptions will be made for parents with kids racing, please contact the event organiser to discuss this further).
Course: The course will be announced on the day of each race and posted both here, and on the Fernie Alpine Resort Facebook page.
