Well the 5 Peaks trail running series is sure getting to be increasingly popular. I think most of the races are sold out this year in the Central Alberta series, but if they aren’t, and you’re interested in trying out trail running, they put on some great races!
Shauna, Sean, Carolyn and I all signed up for the Canmore race and had a really great day. The trails were far drier than we anticipated, and the weather was perfect.
The course (for the enduro (longer distance) was about 10kms), and it had tons of awesome single track, as well as some great climbs and descents. Shauna and I ran the race together and had an amazing time…it had been a while since I ran a race with a friend, nice to have the company — thanks Shauna. Special thanks also to Cam for coming out to cheer…it’s nice seeing a familiar face post race :).
Carolyn and Sean also had great races. Carolyn brought back some bling for the enduro and Sean (as per usual) was on the podium for the sport distance.
What a great day…looking forward to the next trail run with friends 🙂
