Our Events:

The Canadian Rockies Heli Run is the first race of its kind in the world, with an innovative and unique trail running experience located in the Canadian Rockies. This is a two person team event. Teammates will run in a relay format from the Heliport to a remote alpine lake and back again, but there’s a twist. The twist is: the first runner runs in from the heliport to the lake and flies out by helicopter, the second choppers in to the lake and runs out to the heliport. We have partnered with Kananaskis Mountain Helicopters and Icefields Helitours to offer each participant the spectacular six minute helicopter ride as part of this trail running adventure.

 

Powderface42 is classic trail race with scenic vistas and challenging trails.  This legendary event is loved by many and sells out every year.  Half marathon and marathon distances.

 

 

Gran Fondo Highwood Pass is a 147 km bike ride created by TransRockies Events.  TransRockies Events is one of North America’s most experienced organizers of EPIC rides.  TRE has utilized Highwood Pass in other events and has routed Gran Fondo Highwood Pass in a way that optimizes the rider’s scenic experience.

Nothing compares to the remote majesty of the Canadian Rockies and Gran Fondo Highwood Pass travels through the heart of the Rockies over the highest road pass in Canada. You’re going to have a truly epic experience, passing through huge mountain ranges and sharing the scenery with wildlife like elk, deer, moose, big horn sheep, and possibly even bear during this wheeled trek.

The North Face Rundle’s Revenge is a fun, two-day pain-athon that includes mountain biking and trail running. No, it’s not a duathlon. The North Face Rundle’s Revenge is so much more than that! Where duathlons combine the two events into one day, Rundle’s Revenge gives you a full day for each event. The distances are longer and more challenging.
Whether you’re curious about trail running but you’ve never run except when chased, or you want to stride further or faster in the backcountry, or you’re seeking the camaraderie of other Trail Striders, join us for one of our specialized unforgettable camps that will help you achieve your goals. Whether you come alone, with friends, or a spouse, we guarantee you’ll leave with a new community of running buddies, a deep sense of accomplishment, and an inexplicable desire to run feverishly through the wildlands in your own habitat. (At Trail Striders Camps by TransRockies, people “get you,” your outdoor addiction, and your odd habits).

 

What do you get when you bring music and running together? Rotary Music and Motion presented by the Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation in support of Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park.  A weekend fall festival with a Saturday Symphony and Gala Dinner and Sunday 5k, 10k and Half Marathon.
