5 Peaks Northern Alberta Race 5
This 5 Peaks event taking place in Devon features a variety of races including a 1K Childrens Challenge, a 3K Timed Kids Race, an 7.3K Sports Course, a 14.3K Enduro Course as well as a half marathon.
We are proud to be racing in Devon again this year. Just minutes from Edmonton, near the junction of Highway 60 and Highway 19, Devon is scenically located on a bend of the North Saskatchewan River and offers the challenging Sport and Enduro terrain the 5 Peaks racers have come to enjoy! The race will start at the Devon Lions Campground , (1140 Saskatchewan Avenue East, Devon) which is adjacent to the Devon Golf & Curling Club.
The course opens with a hill and is double track for the first kilometer. After the second bridge you begin a massive climb which marks the beginning of the first single track section. Be prepared for limited passing, switchback climbs, a gully crossing and a screaming downhill. After 2.5km you are back on rolling double track.
You will cross a road at 3.25km then the Aid Station at 4.25km (water only) At 4.5km you have another steep downhill followed by a large climb before reaching the water treatment plant. After the plant the course is flat double track until you reach the campground. Once at the campground you will run on a gravel road then one last section of single track before entering the stadium. Note Enduro & Half-Marathon runners need to stay left to begin their 2nd and 3rd lap
