Run the Rocks

Start September 11, 2021 12:00 p.m.
End September 11, 2021 4:00 p.m.

Crowsnest Pass, Alberta

This isn't a traditional cross-country run. It combines running with scrambling, and maybe even a little parkour. Then you douse it all with adrenaline. Your goal is to make it across the rocks, to the far side and back. Historically, this was first done by Sid Choquette in order to warn an oncoming train, but you're doing it to get the best time. There is no set route through the rocks, so you need to pick the best line. Straight lines may not work out for you since the terrain is so varied, with some boulders the size of buses. Depending on your route, the course is approximately 5km, including the run at the start. The elevation depends on your approach but your heart rate will be way up there.
