Scott Thursday Night Race Series Presented By Legends Mountain Eatery
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!
Register by 6:30pm on race day at the Adventure Cabin in the plaza at the base of the resort. The race starts at 7pm SHARP at the start of the race route. Race route information will be confirmed at the Adventure Centre on race day and on the Fernie Alpine Resort facebook page.
Entry fee is $5 (include race and post-race drink at Legends Mountain Eatery).
Lift ticket or season pass is required to access race course. (Lift ticket is not included in entry fee)
Format: Racers will get 1 lap down the designated race 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. 20min 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 August 29th (Please note racers must compete in a minimum of 3 races over the season in order to qualify for the overall standings).
Course: Race course will be announced day of each race and posted both on the Fernie Alpine Resort Facebook page and Fernie Alpine Resort Twitter Page (links below)

The waiver(s) just have to be completed once and will cover the whole series.

IMPORTANT note for competitors 15yr and younger doing the waivers online – your parent must complete BOTH the EVENT & PARENTAL WAIVERS (you will get 2 confirmation emails – one with the event waiver and one with the parental wavier). Please do not miss one or the other – you cannot complete your registration or pick up your bike plate until both waivers are complete.
