New Running Challenge – The Lone Wolf

The Lone Wolf - Running Challenge by The Stag Leap

The Lone Wolf is a new trail running challenge in Fernie, BC. A simple, fun, looped race. But there’s a catch. Racers start together on the hour as a pack, needing to finish the loop within the hour. As when the next hour strikes, the race starts again, in the opposite direction. The goal? To complete as many loops as you can.

The course will be a beautiful, manageable, single track loop, with moderate elevation gain. Around the 7km mark, it will be easy enough to complete within the cutoff time for most, however pacing and tactics will come into play as the day goes on.

The loop will be washing-machine style – heading clockwise, then counterclockwise, then clockwise and so on. Racers need to make it back to base before the hour cutoff, and be ready to start the loop again, on the hour. If you miss the cutoff, you’re out and you remain in the den.
